Fox steering stabilizer install (02 7.3l)

Received my fox racing single steering stabilizer last night to replace my very leaky stock unit.

Install was ok...
1)remove origonal...clean funk off hands ...
2)remove factory bracket...
3)measure the distance the bracket needs to be moved...
4)grind new slots in the bar for the factory bracket to mount to in new position (approximately 6 inches over from stock location).

This grinding part was a biotch...I don't have a dremel...only a grinder...and a file...

5)Then reassmeble with the tiny spacers provided. Four total, two at each end, one on each side...
6) check for binding and correct spacing etc

The result is...the steering straightens itself out a little better...I thought it was an alignment problem.
Now for new shocks.

Total cost was $141 including tax and shipping.

AIS, 4 inch MBRP, 38R ww2, IHI bellowed up pipes
PHP 6 Pos Chip, swamps 140 volt mod
PMF coilovers and 4 link...front and back
2008 D60 up front, 2002 D80 out back
Psc hydro assist with ported hydroboost, p pump
