My stock Ram3500HD had suspension issues. The Tiger coach was more than the Ram engineers accounted on. While new it worker marginally but very quickly was unacceptable at 5,000 miles. I replaced the OEM shocks with a set of Bilstein 5160 shocks. They were better than stock but by 20,000 the ride was back to stock ride quality at best. The rear was worse than the front and I replaced the rear with Rancho 9000 xl’s but they were worse than the OEM or the Bilstein’s.
