Are my stabilizers ok?



All other pictures of stabilizers I've seen on trucks are straight across, whereas mine are at a slight angle. Is this ok? Thanks!

The two brackets that clamp onto the tierod( closest to the wheels) loosen them and rotate them 180 degrees( to the topside of the tierod). Any better? Lol

It almost looks like the main center bracket needs to go under the tie rod, not above.

Ok check it out. It appears that the brackets in the bottom pic are the culprit as I thought. Unbolt both of them from the tierod and the shock. Then you need to put the one from the passenger side to the driver side and vise-versa. Mount it to where it makes the shock parallel to the tierod. Make sense? :/
