My RT only has 30K miles on it and I bought it new from the moment of the test drive to driving it home it was a white knuckle experience. Lots of bounce, sway, tipsy feeling, brake dive, and getting pushed around passing trucks you named it I had it. When I removed stock shock they were not leaking but did seem to be weak to me. After I installed the test drive put a huge smile on my face and fixed all my issue except for low ground clearance. I could not believe adding Bilstein shocks could make this big of a difference.
When I installed the Hellwig sway bars improved the handling even more to the point it is still hard to believe this 5 ton high profile van could drive and handle this well. I have taken the RT for 3 test drives and everytime I come back so impressed. This morning I drove some 2 lane back roads with lots of curves and again was impressed.
