Steering linkage upgrade question.

Hello, I will be swaping out my steering linkage soon and will be going with the mopar "upgrade" model that came on the newer trucks. It requires that I replace the pitman arm due to positioning and steering damper due to mounting hardware. My question is, is there some way to adapt my existing damper (3rd gen bilstein5100) so that it mounts on new linkage ? I feel like at some point I came across a post of a way to do that but I can't find anything on it now that I need it, thank you!

Yeah I noticed that their are clamps out there that I can buy and make it work but from what I have seen the dampers are not the same size the update damper needs to be longer for proper placement. So looks like I will have an extra 3rd gen 5100 steering damper ...

not too hijack but what is the current number for the upgrade? Also where did you get it?

I haven't seen an easy either to use the old style damper. I need to upgrade mine as well. I'm in the market as well to upgrade
