Time to fix the truck

Well I need a new turbo, the bearings are going out. Also I need new balljoints. I want to put in some heavy duty joints rather than oem. What are some good ball joints to buy? Also I know replacing the ball joints are a pain, but has anybody done a write up on it? Also do I need to replace upper and lower, balljoints, at the same time? P.S. If you have an hy 35 for sale pm me.

Forget the HY, if your gonna stay with just a stock replacement get an HX35,
stay away from HY35 because they are to restrictive, and plus if you ever want to upgrade parts on the HX like a compressor wheel or a turbine housing, you can through HTT(hightechturbo). I had all my frontend parts including the trac bar replaced with MOOG problem solver chassi parts. I bough mine from carquest, i dunno where else you can get them. They have a lifetime replacement guarentee, they are exspensive but worth it, and they are greasable.

I agree... HX35 turbo is a must better turbo for stock. They will handle up to 35 PSI worth of boost stock.

Nope, it bolts right in. it was stock on all trucks up to 01 then the 01 and 02 autos got the hy35.

As for the 35psi boost thing, the map of a turbo is more than just psi boost. The hx35 can actually make up to 47psi boost and still be within its map. However, it can only provide enough air for the cummins to be running at about 1100rpm at that boost level. If you're really winding it out, the turbo falls out of its map at around 3000rpm and 24psi boost. For a stock truck, I think the hy is fine. It will spool faster. The main difference is the hx will provide better exhaust flow.

If you have 4.10 gears, both the HY and HX in stock form are VERY restrictive on the top end.

Better off with HTT. They have all the upgrades for the HX35 you might have a better shot with them.

Sorry, I meant HTT, not dtt. Ya I am gonna call them on Monday and see if maybe the will do a swap or something, see what I can work out. My main issue right now is money, I need to get off as cheaply as I can. I have a tranny out on another car, and two vehicles including this one needing balljoints.http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/se...h=2001%20Dodge I was thinking of getting a moog ball joint from here. Has anybody used auto parts warehouse? They are pretty much the same bj's that carquest carries but cheaper.
