02 2500 Diesel, Front end upgrade recomendations.

Hi, I am looking to freshen up the front end of a 02 2500 Diesel stock ride height, the truck is in very nice shape and has low mileage and have had it since new. I am looking to just freshen up the front end as it has some slop and clunks. I have heard of different kits and have heard about some bearing that goes on the steering box shaft or something. Any input and links would be great. Thanks

Keith posted this link up. It is what he is using. I took his lead and also have one on my 07. I think it is a fairly common mod.

What are the wear items on these trucks on the front end?

My truck was high mileage when I bought it at 325k and I replaced brakes, hubs, ball joints, steering box, tie rods, shocks and half axles. Bought it cheap, but with repairs I'm over market now. If you have extensive repairs to make you might consider flipping it.

The truck is in great shape, We used it as a pulling truck and has had a lot of drive line work and quite a few different Turbo configurations. Truck also has not been driven in the snow and has low mileage, the front end is just starting to feel a little loose and would like to upgrade it a bit.

Yes it is a solid truck, Runs very strong and is all there, Front end isn't even that loose just figured I could tighten it a little.
