Truck Acting Dodgey?
Since you're reading this, I think it's pretty safe to say that your Dodge is having some trouble. Loose steering or loss of handling maybe? Well, some of your front end steering parts may have worn out, and if that's the case, odds are good that other parts are soon to follow. Here at DST we know you want to get your Ram back up and running as soon as possible, without breaking your bank.
The Things You'll Need...
If you're lucky, replacing one part, such as a ball joint, can fix some of these issues. But for the more major problems, more parts will be required. Searching for the correct parts, even just finding the correct ball joint, can be a little tricky. Here at DST we've taken the guesswork out of the picture. This is Moog Package Deal 261, a complete front end steering pack for the Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 4WD with the Dana 60 Axle from 2000 - 2002. Created right here at DST, Package Deal 261 includes the front upper and lower ball joints for both the driver and passenger side, all four tie rods, and two tie rod adjusting sleeves. As the owner of a heavy duty truck such as the Dodge Ram, you'll appreciate how Moog's problem solver parts hold up much better than the OE.
Great Quality Parts
Starting with the ball joints, we have the upper and lower ball joint for each side. Your ball joints are mounted in the control arm or spindle. Inside this part is a ball joint stud that swings to compensate for the up and down movement in your suspension. So your ball joint basically works simultaneously for the steering and suspension. Once your ball joint fails due to rust or factory defect, your truck will begin to pull to either side, your steering wheel will have extra play, your front end will shake and your tires will wear prematurely and unevenly. Because the ball joint is so important, it is vital that you choose a replacement ball joint that is dependable. Moog's problem solver ball joints are just that, dependable. Designed to be greasable and using a hardened steel stud, these ball joints are durable and easily serviced to ensure a long life. Included with the ball joints are zerk grease fittings and neoprene dust boots to seal in the grease and keep out harmful road contaminants.
Also included in Package Deal 261 are all four tie rod ends you need. We have the front right outer tie rod, the left outer, the left inner, and the left inner tie rod at the pitman arm. The tie rod is a major pivot point in the steering system. Like the ball joints, these tie rods are greasable, use a neoprene bust boot, and incorporate a ball and socket design on one side that connects to the steering arm. When your steering wheel moves, this ball and socket allows the wheels to turn. With Moog's problem solver tie rod ends, you can ensure that your vehicle's steering ability is increased and stays dependable.
...And the Time to Install it!
Last but not least are the two tie rod end adjusting sleeves, one on the driver side and one for the passenger side. These sleeves are coated for corrosion resistance and are made of steel for durability. The adjusting sleeves join the tie rod ends to the steering linkage and allow your Dodge to be aligned properly. All Moog Problem Solver steering components are backed with a lifetime warranty handled in house at DST.
