After changing to the soft rate coils in the rear, I immediately noticed more articulation especially while towing our gooseneck horse trailer. When the suspension would cycle I was getting a wagging feeling from the rear of the truck that made it difficult to steer. The addition of the Rear Trackbar has eliminated that wagging that occurred on these uneven south Texas highways. Highly recommended!
If you own a late model 3/4 ton RAM . . . . BUY THIS PRODUCT! RIGHT NOW! No joke: After only 3,000 miles living with this truck - I vowed to sell it. Absolutely HATED the truck. It made me angry even! Tired of cleaning the puke from my WeatherTechs from the seasickness this truck gave me on these poorly maintained country roads!! Another thing I'll never have to do, is pull over to clean my drawers and change underwear from a near-death-experience half way through a somewhat high speed curve! This truck - in stock form - is nothing less than dangerous! This Rear Track Bar from Thuren stops ALL of that. I'm happy to keep the truck now, thanks to these guys. Kudos guys - really great thing you made here, but shame on RAM and all it's high paid engineers for making me so queasy in the first place!!!
Not easy to install as you have to drill new holes to get the new bracket to work. I have an extensive set of tools but drill bit kits do not come with a 9/16" bit. And that is the bit you will need to install a bolt thru the middle of the bracket. The bad thing is the bracket hole is only off about 1". This would have been much easier if that new bracket hole was aligned with the factory hole. And to get a step bit to go through a drilled hole and into the back drill spot is almost non existent. I ended up using a step bit at an angle, not through the drilled hole. It reamed the hole out a bit more than it needed but the included large washer took care of that. Watch a Youtube video as the included instructions are not very easy to see in the diagrams. Not an easily installed kit, but it does work and keeps the rear end planted on large road bumps. The factory should have redesigned their angle to this design!
Coming from the Rockcrawler world and building link suspension in the past, One thing is certain that the rear track bar on the ram is too short and at far too great of an angle. This kit is absolutely the key to stop the wobble and right rear dip from added torsional spring rate from the rubber factory bushings on the track bar. Great Job Thuren !!! Worth every penny ! My 2019 Ram 2500 now tows better than my old 3500 with leaf springs but rides like a cadillac !
This is a quality item and very well built. The only reason for 4 stars is, the instructions that come with it have pictures in black and white which make them useless. There Is an arrow in one picture that points into blackness. Also at the border I was hit with an additional $145 charge which I found steep. The track bar and mounting was awesome Thank you very much. The ride on the 2014 power wagon was improved greatly.
