Steering Stabilizer

I was trying to replace my steering stabilizer yesterday and couldn't get the mounting stud disconnected from the front end. The nut holding it in place disconnected quite easily, but I couldn't pull, pound, or otherwise loosen the old mounting stud out. Anyone have any thoughts? I'll post a pic later because it seems a bit hard to describe. TIA.

Put s little heat on it and then when it is mostly cooled down, spray it with bolt loosening spray.

I saw a new freeze spray to help with this...

Question on these things: I only have a leveling kit (Daystar), and F350 blocks on the back with the factory 20" wheels/tires. Certainly, I know it's not necessary, but would a dual stabilizer appreciably change what little shimmy I have now? Most of the dual kits seem to be for only 4" lift +. I was just wondering if it's wasted money, with no diff. for my scenario, or if I would get some benefit...

I am sure it would help it. It is probably more needed when running larger wheel and tire combo, but I would think it would take out your shimmy.

Thanks, Jeff. It's been a few days since I was on the forum, so I'll give it a shot this weekend.
