    i have a 99 Ram 1500 4x4 5.9, lifted. I was told there is an upgraded T- steering i could go to moving away from the Y- steering. i am looking for the part numbers and a link to a setup that will direct bolt on for my particular truck. Anyone done this to their truck?

    I have googled this, and read some setups require re-tapering of holes, don't want to do that, just looking for something that is a direct bolt on. I have also read some require grinding down one of the tie rod ends if you are running 16 inch rims (which I have) , i am ok with doing that, but i am confused about which one will actually work on a 1500.

    Thanks

    You want the steering linkage from a ‘01-‘02 2500.
    I ran it with 15” rims.

    Well, not much feedback here.....after inspecting some more, it looks like a good part of my steering problems are being caused by a weak steering shaft u-joint. I ordered a new steering shaft and a steering stabilizer bar for the steering shaft, should be here in about a week, will update the results if anyone is interested.

    Still interested in changing from the Y steering to the T steering setup though.
