The dead end of a torsion bar front end did not last long.
2006 gets..........
Back to coil springs, yes.
Back to front axle disconnect on 4X4's, yes.
Back to greaseable joints on the front end, most defiantly YES.
Tells me they were and are having "problems" with the torsion bar configuration.
And as for a truck not having grease nipples/Zerk/fittings, bet there warranty claims have outwade any saving they made but not having them from new.

Chevy's been using a torsion bar front suspension for nearly a decade now, and with good success.

My old '89 4Runner had them and did 200,000 miles with no problems.
Beetles used them from the 1930's to the 1970's.
I was not implying that torsion bars are not a valid suspension system just maybe Dodge did not quite get it right. If they did why all the front end wear and the change back to a much simpler, easier setup?
