Default 2012 Ram 1500 W/6in Rcx lift and bilsteins set at 2.1 and 35 nitto trail grapplers

I have a 2012 Ram 1500 crew cab with a 6 in Rcx lift and bilsteins set at 2.1 and a .75 rear coil spacer. Recently going up a rocky mountain road I started getting poping noise when I hit a bump or sharp turn. I took it to my local dealer and they said I needed tie rod ends so they replaced them. It was still poping so I took it back now they say I need upper and lower ball joints and I have 49,950 miles on it. Anybody having issues with the ball joint? I just ordered my 37 nittos and want to make sure that my front end is tuff enough .

Your Ram looks great. Also, it seems that the manufactures have been putting really weak steering components on trucks for over a decade now. It's not uncommon at all for ball joints, tie rod ends, ect to need replacing before 50k miles now days.

Took my truck to the shop im getting my new nitto's from and it took the owner all of 10 min to find the popping and itws the front sway bar link that goes down and they tightened it and now no popping. Dodge wants $2100 to replace front ball joints. I think I will try to get a straight axle conversion before I pay that for ball joints. Lol
