A steering Stabilizer with NO Bolts ? !!

The Stabilizer feels good in my hands, but its kind of hard to install with no hardware included. Factory Drag link hardware is not re-useable,as it is not removeable from the factory...Read complete review

The Stabilizer feels good in my hands, but its kind of hard to install with no hardware included. Factory Drag link hardware is not re-useable,as it is not removeable from the factory stabilizer. Advertisement page states Parts Pack is included, but it sure was not in the box. Its aggravating to take apart your truck to install a newly purchased Steering Stablizer, but the hardware( that is suppose to be included) to mount it has gone AWOL. AAP will be seeing my face again this morning, and it will not be a happy face.

          This Steering Stabilizer is very heavy duty compared to the stock unit. Installation made an immediate difference in how the steering feels under all conditions. I feel confident it will last a long time.

          Replaced OEM stabilizer with this model and was impressed with ease of fitment and quality. All new hardware and quality craftsmanship. Ordered online for my 20yr old jeep, and stock was in store and ready within the hour.

              I bought this steering stabilizer for my TJ not even a year ago and it is already leaking fluid. It has barely been off road. It is a solid stabilizer and a good price but next time I'll spend more and get one that lasts

                  what exactly does a steering damper stabilizer do

                    A:

                    Hi Dan, glad to assist you! The purpose of a steering stabilizer is to tame the action of trucks and SUVs with oversized tires. When you equip your ride with larger tires, you may become a victim of the “shimmy” effect or the “death wobble.” But, a steering stabilizer ends the common vibration problem that larger tires can cause, smoothing out your ride. So, you get improved handling and better ride quality.

                • Q:

                  When the shocks are replaced does this also need replacement?

                  • A:

                    No. Unless this is leaking like the shocks were too, or if you're noticing more steering vibration than normal. Hope this helps!
