Clutch linkage pops off when truck flexes.

what are my options to prevent this from happening? Every time I start to flex out the truck the clutch linkage pops off the framerail and I loose clutch control.

never worked on dodges, but with chevys the answer is convert to hydro clutch.
softer springs would reduce how much the frame gets twisted

hydro clutches are also $$ and a real pain to bleed and it's just one more thing to fuck up.

a guy could prolley spend a bunch of time and $$ making a hiem jointed linkage that couldnt fall off, but if you watch what happens when flexing there are often times when the frame flex has the clutch pedal on the floor so you cannot release the clutch.
been there when that happened while climbing a hill, motor stalls cause he couldnt press the clutch when it wasnt makin it
so truck is stuck have way up the hill with us standing there trying to decide how scary it will be to pry the clutch linkage with a bar from outside, then i noticed the alternator was slowly turning backwards...
