    Drag link recall "How Ram Handles it"

    I’ve been in contact with Ram but I’ll refrain from posting speculation on my case until I can actually talk to my case manager. I don’t think it would be such the issue if Ram wasn’t charging $400+ for the drag link itself, or if aftermarket came out with a cheaper quality option. Many of us...

I didn’t say this in my first...

    Front or Rear

    Front is better for steering. Rear is better for safety. In my experience, both are good for forward traction. Remember the old days of rear wheel ABS? It’s the same principle. If your front tires are braking hard but aren’t skidding but your rear wheels begin skid, the rear of the truck may...
