If you have the same problem with the rear sway bar, they work there too...

dodgeramvt ok so i was able to jimmy rig some bolts into these the sway bar links to just keep on there while the new ones are in transit. my question is the passenger side link was hard to put in. it almost seems like the swaybar itself is bent? any ideas why this is so far off?

dodgeramvt interesting... i appreciate the heads up. I will be working on it this weekend and will do the dry steer test (just saw the jist of it on youtube.) DW is a PITA!!!!

tjsean0308 couldn't help but notice you have a decent amount of oil on the trac bar Tie rod end at the frame. I suspect you have something else causing your shimmy that is in turn creating the sway bar shift and thus the clunk. Time to do a dry steering test.

Many have used that to fix your issue.

Check at any bearing supply warehouse near you to find them, they're called double split shaft collars...

dodgeramvt they are aftermarket rims (i do not know what brand) no spacers. i didn't see any rub on the swaybar at all. i found this tho, http://www.4x4xplor.com/swaybar-fix.html seems like an easy fix. maybe this will stop the damn clunk i get every now and then from the front end.

Necko2529 What's your backspacing on your rims? Are they stock or aftermarket? Do you have spacers?
07-31-2013 02:29 PM
dodgeramvt Well i can say without a doubt i have zero tire rub now. Maybe when the po had it it use to before the lift but i have a ton of space when the wheel is hard over. I am going ti try the hose clamp idea. That seems like a logical fix to stop it from moving. What about bump stops? Anything that could mount to the frame to keep it from rubbing?
