                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
