Steering stabilizer

Should my 2000 F-350 dually have a steering stabilizer on the front axle? I see the bracket out at the end of the axle, and on a friends 2001 F-250, there's a stabilizer there.

Your truck is prepped for a stabalizer, but I believe it was a factory option. I don't like a stabalizer. I drive frequently in winter weather - icy roads - and the stabalizer doesn't give me as good a "feel" of the road and a slower reation time on counter steering.
