        As everyone before has said, the bolt is too short. Save yourself time and aggravation and buy a 1" longer bolt (the narrower of the two included). you would think they would include the correct hardware!

        Comments about MOOG Steering Damper:

        The hardware kit that is included will work on Gm applications but did not work on my jeep. the jeep uses a long 3/8-16 stud on the drag link end of damper but hardware kit has a 1/2-13 and a 1/2-20 bolt in the kit.i had to find the right size and length of bolt from my stock. the steering damper itself works great and is good Quality.

        Comments about MOOG Steering Damper:

        Overall, a great damper that works just as promised. Very happy with the feel of my steering after instillation. Only down side, was that the supplied hardware wasn't long enough for my application. I remedied this with a quick trip to the local hardware store. For the price though you would expect better attention to detail.

              Came with all the hardware and good instructions. Only complaint was the mounting bolt and nut didn't have a saftey hole and cotter pin to prevent nut from ever losening.

                • Q:

                  Should there be a rubber boot with this to cover the exposed rod? I feel like there should be something protecting it when it's extended. Thanks.

                • Q:

                  Please verify the Moog Steering Damper fits my 1997 Jeep Wrangler Sport as the picture shown on your website does not show the correct hookups for my vehicle (vehicle has a ball joint with tapered stud at steering link end and loop style at axle end.

                • Q:

                  I have had trouble with the correct fit on this type of product. I need to ensure this steering damper connects to front axle on passenger side and further to the "drag link" or "right outer tie rod end".

                  Please verify and reply.
