well I'm looking at doing a complete custom one off front suspension system for my 98 ram 4wd but I can't have it down for more than a day or two as it's my daily driver. anyway anyone out that has a set of factory control arms out of a 94-99 ram 1500-2500 or 3500. I could use measurements of the size of the bushings. I'm thinking about using the poly version of the bushings to make my new control arms as it's not much of an off road truck any more because there isn't any place close by to go. But I want it to be able to and for the money I think they will work just fine. Later on I might end up going to full hiem joints if I can but for now I'm sticking with poly bushings. and don't have any in hand to at least start planning further.
For now I'm hoping to make a set of long arms so that later if I ever get the funds I can do my dream setup of long travel coilovers.... But I do also plan on pushing the front axle forwards a little as I'm already running bigger tires (35" mickey tompson MTZ) for now but looking at running 37" with beadlocks in the next year or so.
That reminds me I need to update the projects thread with new info and pics... I'll try to do that later today or soon at least.
well as the title says I'm parting out my parts truck as that is what I got it for. The motor is going in my 98 for now so I can rebuild my stock motor. The trans is no go. The hood, fenders, doors and all are pretty much just extras in case I mess mine up. bed and rear axle are more than likely going to go into a truck bed trailer as I kind of need the cash for another item I'm in in major need for... LOL well all the wiring and small parts are up for grabs if you need something let me know... I pulled every nut and bolt out of the full truck the fuel tank all lines and wires everything... now the dash was toast when I got the truck and I already had someone claim the headlights as they hit a deer last month.
anyway let me know if you need anything... as I'll at least look... mostly looking for shipping to be covered on most anything. Just hate to see anyone pay high prices for something I have sitting here.
But I am looking for a spare set of control arms for my 98 4wd. so I figure out how I'm going to do my custom ones while my truck stays on the road then place the new ones in and I can return the factory ones if wanted. Heck I think even measurements would work work for me.
anyway let me know if you need any wiring, sensors or the likes I'll see what I have. maybe even a few small body panels if I still have the rest of the cab...
ok well title says it all... my 98 ram started to have a miss in cylinder 6 and 8 so figured nows a good time to go big or go home.... need help picking a cam.... keep in mind this is my daily driver...
98 ram 1500 4x4 5.9 360 auto with 221,000 miles... 33 12.5 x wrangle mrt tires... 3.55 gears... lots more to list but my computer just told me I have less than 2 minutes before it's rebooting....
Anyone out here have a little sassy grass paint left after another project? I'm looking for a little to do the insets of my rims and a few details such a graphics or the likes and maybe something in the interior. Just looking for leftovers no need for a gallon or anything... Lol
More than likely one f the newer Rams thats being turned into a wheelin rig and Daily driver. But figured I might as well post it here as well as over on RCC seeing as how I'm in TX and all. and most of you seam to be in the same area.
