Broken Steering Stabalizer

Well I managed to bend one of my dual skyjacker steering stabalizers while going through a rut, just was wondering if any of you all know if I should even bother with trying to get one under warranty because I don't think that will work due to the fact that I was the idiot and bent it. Or if I can just purchase one of dual stabalizers from somewhere. The other one is just fine and works great still so I dont want to drop the 130 bucks on another whole set. Thank you for your time.

Howd it bend? From the stress of actual steering through the ruts or did it make contact with something? How was it installed? I ask because Ive seen in several occasions it having been installed vertical and on a 45 degree-type angle before (I guess they were looking for more ground clearance).

They were mounted just as it said in the instructions, they were parallel with the ground and ran straight across. You can see it on some of my pictures I've got on my profile of how they were mounted. The only thing I can think of how it got bent was that it hit something in the rut and pushed on it. It bent bad enough I was unable to turn my truck left, that made it interesting to get back on the street into some light because of course I did this at night haha.

Hahaha I do have a flashlight, but I was also on a trail that I probably wasn't supposed to be on at the time to hahaha. And luckily one of my buddies happened to drive by to help me figure out what the hell happened because with the boot over the stabilizer we couldn't see it was bent so we were baffled on what the hell broke that I couldn't turn left. And I'm a NASCAR fan so that is a serious issue haha. And thanks I'll check them out after work.

May be able to just order that single unit and bolt it up. While at it, Id order another set of boots too for when the installed ones tear over time. I think you can order different colors to your choosing too.
