Intense-Dakota said::help: Some of you may know I have been having alot of problems with my suspension on my 03 4.7L Ram Short Bed Standard Cab. Recently, on my last trip to the dealership, I was told that my truck has a "heavy duty suspension that should not be on my truck". However it is all stock. Every last bit of the suspension except for the shocks (monroe reflex) is how it came from the dealership. Becuase of this "heavy duty suspension" the dealer refused to do anyting to try and determine the problem of this super stiff ride. I looked at my work order and noticed the vechicle description states my truck is a "4 door". This got me wondering. I have tried every VIN decoder I can find and everything says 4 door ram. Now, I am wondering if dodge/chrysler screwed up the vin number (since I have a standard cab) did they screw up the suspension and possibly put the quad cab suspension on a standard cab truck. So this bring the first question:
Can everyone please post pics of there rear leaf springs (from the inside) or at least let me know how many leafs there are in total counting the lower (heavy load) spring that is bent down. Part numbers would be great also. Please post your truck info if possible also, so that I may compare.
Second and last question. Does anyone know what to do about this vin number issue, since I obviosly don't want to get pulled over and have a cop go all high and mighty and say the truck is stolen since the vin tag does'nt match the vehicle description.
Thanks, Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
First off with the dealer, they're just trying to get out of doing the work, since they don't make as much on warranty work. Call up DC corporate and start complaining to them.
About getting pulled over. As long as your paperwork matches and I'm sure it does, you'll be fine. The cop would have no idea how to decode the VIN to check and see if the bodystyle and option are correct.
