    How is the WTO mod on the road? I have hydro assist on my DD and need more flow at lower RPM's. How does the PS pump mod affect the steering on the highway?

    Also, when I got my 6" lift kit there was a steel shim bolted in the pack. If I take that out will I lose the vibration I have? I am going to put in a 2" lift leaf to level the truck out. I was figuring the shim was to correct driveline angle, but everyone tells me not to run it with a 6" or less lift. What is all of your opinions. I know a guy with 12" of lift not running any shims or mods to the driveline or axle housing. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    I thought I knew a lot about my truck until I started hangin out here. So much to learn so little time to get the $h!t done.

    I can't hardly tell I have hydro assist. the only time it lets me know it is ther is at idle, and when i want to turn fast. (i have the big 2" ram.) on the freeway, no probs, between a rock and a hard place--the rock moves. i love it.

    on the shim--i would shim it if the drivline angle is bad---if it is not--dont worry about it.

    Has anyone else modified their stock PS pump for use with hydro assist? How do you like the high and low speed reactions?
