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.

Well on a stock wheeled truck, it just keeps it from wandering at speed. This is my own personal opinion going from a blown one to a new one...

You have any pictures of how you mounted it in there cuz to me it seems like the body of it is too close to the bracket on the axle
