Welcome to the forum....relating to the 3500HD ride you may want to replace the word "rough" with "tough".  Thanks for signing up..3500HD specific parts are hard to find...the main reason we started this forum. Unlike so many forums, we don't care if you post another sites "URL" and you don't need a minimum number of posts to list items or needs...heck just sign up to list your parts!

If you have the time...post a picture of your truck in the Gallery.

Take care...if you have any Dodge parts especially dually items..list them.

Welcome Ron,

For hard parts like suspension, brakes, etc. if these stores are available in your area - be sure to try NAPA and Carquest as they're more likely to have them.  NAPA's website is smart enough to list the 3500HD as a separate model from 3500's, so that's helpful.

Above the frame rails these trucks have very much in common with the lighter versions, with a few exceptions.

Sounds like you got a real steal!  Got a bargain on a set of 19.5" tires and got a free truck with them, too! ;D
