The Latest Goodies For Your HD Truck
Control Arm Upgrade
BDS Suspension has come up with a new control arm upgrade kit for the Ram 2500/3500 that gives 2 to 3 inches of lift. These new upper and lower fixed-length control arms re-center the front axle in the wheelwell while adjusting for proper caster and pinion angles. The arms are constructed from heavy-duty, 1.5-inch tubing with fully welded greasable ends. Durometer-specific polyurethane bushings isolate road noise and allow for a smooth ride with improved articulation.
The all-new Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure tire uses a layer of DuPont Kevlar for rugged toughness over pavement, gravel, and dirt (plus superior traction through rain and snow). Key elements include open shoulder blocks in the tread to help clear mud and snow, traction ridges for bite on soft road surfaces, and a rubber compound that contributes to traction capabilities on wet and icy roads. The new Adventure also contains Goodyear's Durawall technology to offer toughness and help resist cuts in the sidewall area.
Precision Turbo and Engine has announced the addition of new 160-lb-hr high-impedance fuel injectors to its line of fuel system components. Representing the next generation of high-flow injector technology with fast response times, excellent flow pattern, and compact design, the injectors have a robust design and excellent response characteristics.
