Synergy Steering for Heavy-Duty Ram Trucks

Arm-Wrestle Your Ram: Red Head & Synergy Steering for HD Dodge trucks

Fred WilliamsPhotographer, Writer

Our big 2011 Ram 3500 has racked up over 130,000 miles in the last six years, and it’s going strong, but we decided it was time for some steering upgrades. We always run on 35-inch rubber, often with a trailer, and had noticed an odd clunk in the front end. Steering is the most important component on your 4x4 (brakes are second, but they just slow you down).

The factory steering is quite robust, but when an opportunity to upgrade comes along we can’t resist. We found upgraded steering parts for heavy-duty Dodge/Ram trucks from Offroad Power Products, Synergy Manufacturing, and Fox Racing Shox. Though this truck drives most of its miles on asphalt, we like having it ready for dirt adventures, so we took the opportunity to upgrade the steering box and linkage for additional beef. If you are looking at larger than 35-inch tires you may want to consider some or all of these bolt-in upgrades for your heavy-duty Ram truck.
