RE: Rear sway bar options for my '97 Dodge Ram 3500?

I am interested in the bushing change and what it will do! Me too!

RE: Rear sway bar options for my '97 Dodge Ram 3500?

Well I've gotten tired of over researching this as I always do with anything before I buy. So I just ordered the Front Poly Bushing from Energy Suspension & then also ordered the 1 & 1/4 rear kit from RoadMaster> Wish me luck with the results.

RE: Rear sway bar options for my '97 Dodge Ram 3500?

I was just speaking with the people at Roadmaster & the guy got me excited about just adding an auxiliary sway bar to my current one & then he realized they don't offer one for my '97 Dodge 3500 4x4 dually. He then said he was thinking about class C & A motorhomes. Have any of you ever rigged a 2nd bar to you TC?

In my case DW = DEAR WIFE Blanco...have you posted what you did to the 5.9? Is it 12 or 24? Its a 12 valve that is said to have about 500HP. Its got injector & a plate & etc & a double disc clutch. I forget the list, too many cars too remember, but if you want I'll find the link to the details.

DW is giving you good vibes...go with it! DW?!?!?! Darn Wife yeah I know, kinda strange, but there are folks that use DH and DW for their siginificant others I am actually the boss believe it or not, but I let her watch the accounts to keep me in line, other wise I might over draft. :( I prefer to call her the the boss than DW. But I'll remember this from now on. Maybe in a few more years I'll see her as the DW? LOL!

RE: Rear sway bar options for my '97 Dodge Ram 3500?

I have the back only...made a real difference! You can save shipping if you plan coming north for your traveling...may be worth it...good to fiugure out. Worth a call. I've even started looking on E-Bay & am still finding the roadmaster to be twice the price but, The wife/boss agrees with me that its better to spend more the 1st time then not being happy with the cheaper way & then spending the money later to do what you should of done the 1st time.

RE: Rear sway bar options for my '97 Dodge Ram 3500?

I do like the fact that its a bigger bar & with as much traveling as I have in mind it might be worth it? I'm also wondering if just fixing the stock set up would satisfy me? Money is always an issue with me. :( I figure for now I would replace the front with a simple Poly bushing set up. But like the idea of bigger out back due to the LARGE Lance 900.

RE: Rear sway bar options for my '97 Dodge Ram 3500?

I've learned today the the Roadmaster is about twice the price if the Hellwig. Is it twice the performance?

RE: Rear sway bar options for my '97 Dodge Ram 3500?

Roadmaster makes the thickest I have front & rear on my Ford $$$$$ well spend :) What did the front & rear together end up costing you? I've heard the front one is pretty big already .

RE: Rear sway bar options for my '97 Dodge Ram 3500?

Looked like from that link, that they offer 1 & 1/4 inch rear bar & Hellwig only offers a 1 & 1/8. The additional 1/8th probably does help.

Thanks Buzzcut, I'll call them tomorrow.

Rear sway bar options for my '97 Dodge Ram 3500?

I've been trying to find Poly bushing for the factory rear sway bar & yet can't find any. Fronts are no problem finding Poly. I wanted to go poly figuring it would help even more than factory rubber. I've heard of an aftermarket rear swaybar kit from Hellwig & wonder if that's my only choice?

RE: Trailer tongue weight scales?

On my Sherline that "button" is just a plug that allows refilling of the gauge if it has glycerine in it. Yeah looks like a plug, don't seem to actually be a button.

RE: Trailer tongue weight scales?

When using a Sherline scale, you may find you need to jump up and down on the tongue a bit to make the scale settle. If you don't, the reading can be wrong. Thanks for the tip. But is that a button in the top of the dial? & if yes what does it do?

RE: Trailer tongue weight scales?

I got my E-Bay scale for $100.00 & wonder what does the what sorta looks like a rubber covered button do on the top of the scale dial? So far I see my boats tongue weight is is only about 100-150 depending on how I shift it about on the scale & my car trailer need to have the car adjusted being how it sits with my Samurai on it is about about 900 lbs. But I already knew just by looking at it the the rig is too far forward on the trailer. Handy & fun little tool & I think I'm end up marking the trailer for each 4x4 I'll normally tow at its best position for the tongue weight.

RE: Over cab bed area external crack, Should I be concerned?

Ok, so I'm thinking I'll loosen the rears, yet see no reason to keep them tighter for the HWY? The camper should basically hold itself in place the hold downs keep it from sliding from what I understand?
Blanco1 08/01/14 11:19am Truck Campers
RE: Over cab bed area external crack, Should I be concerned?

... I figure for the more bumpy roads they must help?Without a doubt. Loosen the rear tie downs when on the bumpy roads, it will take some of the stress off of the cab over. Wayne I wonder if maybe I have the tie downs too tight or loose now? & Yes from the start my plan was dirt roads in the desert & sand as in Pismo beach & glamis & why I got a 4x4 truck. Yet have not gone yet. Getting closer as I can afford it. Got the 4 foot trailer extension in now & got my trailer & now I need to get a WDS for the trailer & then I'll start heading out to play.

RE: Over cab bed area external crack, Should I be concerned?

So those are you guys saying the stabilizers shocks would make things worse? I plan more trips soon to the desert & pulling my 4x4 toys with me & this means more off road fire roads or whatever to get to our campgrounds. I figure for the more bumpy roads they must help?

Over cab bed area external crack, Should I be concerned?

I noticed this crack the other day wonder if it something to be concerned about? I've been saying to myself that I should get those stabilizer that hold up the bed & now think it even more? What do you guys think? Its only on the drivers side. & its a 1985 Lance. http://www.supermotors.net/getfile/1031456/fullsize/img_6737.jpg http://www.supermotors.net/getfile/1031457/fullsize/img_6738.jpg http://www.supermotors.net/getfile/1031458/fullsize/img_6739.jpg I wonder if thats how it looks outside what might be going on inside?
