I'm guessing more flex, but I really don't have anything to measure it. It definitely effected the balance of my car, because it went from good to slight understeer.

Might be a dumb Question by why is everyone so excited about the gear cover?

Typical stuff...

shock towers
A-arms
caster blocks
front spindles

Parts to replace off the bat are:

akerman plate...replace with either Tresrey or FTW CF pieces, the latter available through AVID

Ballcups. Most replace with TC5 ballstuds and RPM longshank ballcups. (Note: many have had great success with the stock units)

Tranny case: the rear camber link mounts to the tranny directly. The cases are unavailable at this time. Some have broken off the "ear" where the ballstud threads into. Tresrey has a CF plate coming out that will resolve this area.

Use the online manual available through the TD website. it is the most up-to-date one available.

That's it! The car is pretty durable and drives very nice. have fun!

To do the TC5 ball studs, should I get long heads or short heads?

I used the short heads all around. If I had to do it all over, I would use the 4.8mm ballstud (TLR or Kyosho) and corresponding ball cups. The 4.8 is beefier than the AE pieces. Lunsford makes a complete conversion kit for the Durango vehicles.
