    just got my 98 dodge ram 1/2 ton 4wd on the road. While turning the wheel it respsonds much faster when turning left then it does to the right. What parts should i look at for being wore out?

    If it's a plow truck there is a part that wears out each season. Like a center section? Might post in the Dodge section below this forum. A Woman I work with has to replace the part every end of the plow season.

    might as well just do the whole 1ton HD conversion:

    Heres a listing of the parts that fit a '99 and earlier Ram. I have Moog numbers.
    2000 and up use a different number for the pittman arm TRE, or you need a 99 and earlier arm.

    DS 1459 RH, to DS1456
    DS 1456 RH Outer
    ES 3496 LH Outer
    ES 3497 To Pitman arm
