Default Custom Diesel Steering stabalizer Installed

I just got new tires and rims, 4 new ball joints, wheel bearings, and alignment and the truck drove ok. I put on 31" inch tires (275/70/17's) but it wasn't as stiff or tight a drive as I'd like so I decided to install Custom Diesel's steering stabilizer and man what a differrence! It drives great now... Anyone else out there with the same mod that has an opinion?

Great question. Maybe I should've included that info first... This mod ties the frame rails & steering gear box together, eliminating the flex that causes the truck to wander... It is bolted underneath the sway bay mounts and has a shaft for a nut under the steering linkage that stabilizes it during bumps and reduces flex in that area. It was a real b@#$ to install because I broke off a bolt removing the sway bar, but I finally got it accomplished and really like the way it handles now. No more wander! Of course new front end parts and an alignment helped too...

Great mod! Steering stabilizers are a great thing to get for any truck. They really make a difference and for the better

Price is $129 so it is a pretty cheap mod and shipping is free. You can look here - http://custom-diesel.com/index.php/d...abilizers.html .
