Bilsteins, BWoody Endlinks, and SRT8 rear sway

So finally after almost a month of waiting the weather held out and i actually had time to work on the truck. I installed the SRT8 rear sway, bwoody endlinks all around and WK bilsteins all around. There is a definite improvement in ride quality, the truck just feels more planted and solid. I had 50k on the stock struts and shocks and felt like they may have been clunking the slightest bit on small bumps at low speed. It seems that the new bilsteins have gotten rid of the clunking and have very good dampening characteristics the ride is quieter and much more solid. ride should've been like this from the factory, it's a firmer feel and the truck seems more agile. so for $600 i feel like it was worth it. just waiting on my throttle body at which time i'll do my thermostat which has been sitting around for a while too. then i'll be done with everything i want performance wise, maybe a cam next year. as far as the exterior goes just gotta get my mirror covers painted and maybe a mopar spoiler.
