I have an 8" Fabtech lifted truck that had a popping sound. It came down to being the factory steering stabilizer. The bolt was sheared in the RED ARROWED area in the picture below so I removed it. Thanks to a guy on the forum I have found out that it is not necessary to run a factory steering stabilizer if you got the dual opposed steering stabilizers. I am just curious to know why his shop removed his but my shop did not. I have driven it without it and it feels...easier to steer...but still unsure if it is needed or not, just because I have been driving with it for years. But can someone go into further detail into whether you need to have or not have a factory steering stabilizer if you have the dual opposed steering stabilizers on a lifted truck.
Here is a sample pic of what my setup pretty much looked like with the blue arrow pointing to the damaged part, the yellow showing where it was connected to and broke off of (yellow pointed bars are good though) and the red just showing how I have my duals.
If anyone can input their knowledge of this.
