    Depending on how much is your budget.
    You could get koni shocks and stranos. That's over $1000 plus you need adj. Panhard bar.
    To lower it properly u also need relocation brackets,
    And lower control arms.
    That's another $500.
    So it would be around $1500 just in parts.

    Or get bilsteins shocks for $400 and everithing else I said.
    But it depends how much u want to spend.
    00 ss blk m6 " STOCK" strano springs, slp bilstein shocks, adj LCA, adj panhard bar, relocation brackets, 2 point SFCs welded,OEM zo6 rims black, magnaflow exhaust, CME exhaust,E/cutout, slp grille, custom front plate mount, HIDs, whistler mod, side moldings delete, slp air lid, ported and polished TB, strut tower brace, 3.73s gears, and some other parts to list!

    you should also get relocation brackets and adj torque arm. Adj. LCA wouldnt hurt as well.

    Panhard bar and lca what to do

    I'm loooking at different sites and UMI and BMR seems to be the product mostly used. I ordered a Yank SS3200 and I'm thinking these 2 pieces should probably follow but I see them at $89 to a lot more non adjustable single adj. dual adjustment

    What is a decent set that will work well and will not cost me an arm and a leg? Some people say just buy the non adj. it is a lot better than my stock stuff I'm running 295/36/18's on a 10.5" rim 56mm offset what do you guys think?

    Since I'm not lowering the car anytime soon should I even bother changing these yet and what will it do for me if I do? I'm being told that it might be a good idea to change but I'm not 2 sure why????

    IF you don't have oversided rims you'll NEED lowering springs and a good set of shocks. If you have bigger rims then you'll want to do an adj panhard bar or install and take a look and see if you want to spend the coin.

    I did not get a panhard par, no LCA's or relo brakets or or or...just springs and shocks and she drives like a champ. My wheel hop is 95% gone (used to wheel hop VERY badly when stock).

    Because of your back tires you'll at least want an adjustable panhard to center the rear end, otherwise your tire might rub. The bar goes diagonal from the body to the rear and when you lower the car you mess with the trigonometry of it pushung the rear off to the side

    You will want an adj panhard rod regardless of tire/wheel size to recenter the rear like already mentioned. The relocation brackets and adj torque arm will help re-establish angles to prevent wheelhop and improve traction.
    Durango, I would get all adj. so you do not have to rebuy stuff later down the road when you decide to lower.
