Bilstein steering stabilizer

I am currently in the process of ordering (4) Bilstein shocks for my 2006 F-250 PSD. I cannot find any applications for a Bilstein steering stabilizer for my truck. I found something for a Ford Chassis cab (which may be the same). Any and all feedback is appriecated.

Don't think I have ever seen one for an OEM replacement. You looking for direct replacement or replacing with a dual kit of somekind?

Just looking for the OEM replacement. The single that is attached to the drag link and then to a bracket on the frame.

The only direct OEM replacement I found when I was looking a few months back was by Rough Country. I believe Fabtech also had one that claimed it was a direct replacement but the picture didnt show the stud needed. ProComp I think also has one but it required some sort of bracket.

I wound up going with the Rough Country stabilizer. Price was right and havent had a single issue with it as yet.

Just wondering how easy is this to replace? Does it really help with the stablilizing of the steering and tighten it up? I do find mine to be a little loose in the steering. Any help would be great... sorry to hi-jack the thread.

It takes longer to get your tools out and get everything situated than to change out the OEM stabilizer. Just make sure you have a pickle fork to knock it out of the drag link with
