Re: Dual Steering Stabilizer Install

It will just make it that much harder to turn your steering wheel if it's left on

so everyone has been pulling the cylinder at the top off and just running the new set up? No benefits to leaving it on just a down side right?

It seems to be the norm on >2005 4x4 super dutys to pitch the OEM steering stabilizer in the trash when adding a dual setup. I did on my 06.

I would take it off. I took mine off when I put my TGC dual bilstein set up on. In my eyes It didnt need to be there, and I didnt want to create to much resistance on the steering box. It may not cause excess stress on the steering box, but I figured may as well not chance it.

I didn't when I installed my dual setup but it makes sense to toss it if your installing an aftermarket one.
