Air bags. For when you REALLY load your suspension. Add a little air to level it back out.

Airbags as HeyYou said they also can raise the truck about 3 inches in the rear because as or sits without them my noise of the truck is a little higher. So I'll probably add a leaf. They also dramatically smooth out the ride. Now you lose about 20% of flex and suspension travel with airbags but I have a solution for that

Correct they also can lift the rear about 3 inches unloaded

Default F*cking Death Wobble....Again

So I got death wobble and tested the suspension and seen I had a bad tie rod and all the boots were ripped. So I figured it's a good time to upgrade to the "T" steering (might do a write up) instead of the inverted "Y" steering. Did that for $85 got all my parts from RockAuto. So I changed that over. I lost my dual steering stabilizers because the "T" steering tie rods are thicker. Now my death wobble is worse!

Before I would only get it on certain potholes and it would shake. Now I get it on any uneven surface and it shakes 100% worse then before. Here is the kicker, everything is tight. The only two things I can think of is alignment (they couldn't adjust the caster because the aftermarket cam bolts aren't big enough) or tires out of balance (can't get them balanced around here they are to big). What do you guys think? Should I go with my lift company's recommended alignment specs or Dodge's?
