Maybe im describing it wrong then. I original bought the truck and it didn't have one on there. So i went to Ford because the truck has some slop in the steering. Basically you could move the steering wheel left and right a couple inches and nothing happened. My F150 was super responsive so i was concerned.
Ford looked and said it was the tires i have 325/50/20. They took those off and installed factory tires and the issue went away. So they said i needed a stabilizer system.
They paid for it and put it in free since i just bought the truck.
Everything is golden now.
Even with a stabilizer you should feel resistance when steering the truck no? I mean those are Shocks basically they are there to absorb hits the tires take so you steering wheel isn't jerked out of your hand. So that being the case when you steer the truck its going to have more resistance. Now when i say you have to steer it back i don't mean you let the wheel go and the truck turns its self. It does auto center but its a bit slower to do it. I choose some bad wording.
Moyock that's exactly what mine looks like but my shocks are silver and i have boots over the shafts.
Hmm, well I had a similar problem. Had a good amount of slop in my steering and I was running my dual steering stabilizer kit. Come to find out and I changed about everything it was my steering box. I wouldn't over look that if I were you...
