Default Kicker Shock for 6" Lift
Hello Gents,

I have an 04 Ram QC Laramie with the pro comp MX6 6" lift kit on it... recently replaced all 4 shocks but my truck has a kicker shock that goes from the frame to rear dif...
I want to replace this but cannot find part # or any other info on it , all I can find is one for a viper truck im assuming the one I need is longer since I'm lifted???
Thanks

I've never seen anything like that on our rams. Maybe post a picture... give us a better idea of what you're looking for.

It's a shock absorber that mounts to the top of the dif housing and goes to a mount on the frame
It's supposed to prevent axle wrap and wheel hop and just generally improve handling.
I replaced all 4 shocks recently and couldn't find a part # on this so hoping one of y'all would have gone through same process
Here's a pic
Thanks

You're best bet would probably be too measure it and maybe write a shock company and have them get you a part number of similar size

That an eBay exhaust kit?

Yeah maybe I'll swing in to 4 wheel parts and ask them... I'll try to measure tomorrow...
As for exhaust idk, I bought the truck with it on there had a pro-flo 2into1 and sounded terrible
So I replaced with supper 44
Much much better 😃😃

Ok so update for whom ever wants to know
Apparently these came factory on the Srt Rams or at least the Reg Cabs, I think for those of us who run lift kits most trucks now use ladder bars or lateral Track bars to prevent rear axle play forward/reverse. I guess the guy I bought truck from decided this would be a good mod .... oh well guess I'll just order another Pro Comp shock to replace the one that's there
Here is some info from vipertruck.com
If anyone cares here's the link

Scroll all the way to bottom
