Re: Unique R/T Parts

The R/T's are lowered about 1" in the front and about 2" in the rear compared to a regular v8 dakota. I am not sure how they did this though. It has a heaver front sway bar than stock and has a sway bar on the rear. It has an aluminum drive shaft and some kind of brace which connects from the rear leaf springs to the chassis to prevent wheel hop. It works very well because I have never even felt the slightest wheel hop, even on 20ft+ burnouts. BEst bet would be to locate an R/T and give it a good look over to see what your looking for.

I'm in the process of searching for a 97 or 98 5.2 5-sp. When I purchase one I intend to
"upgrade" the suspension to R/T specs. I have searched through the mailing list's archives
hopeing to find a post detailing the unique suspension components on a R/T.
Unfortunatly, no luck. Can someone enlighten me on this subject?
