Smile Just installed new steering damper

I just replaced the stock steering damper on my 06 250 turbo with a Rough Country unit. It went pretty smoothly as I was told by a fellow forum member except for a couple of minor issues. Everything came apart easily except for the nut on the end of the shaft at the bracket. A little bolt buster and some vice grips on the end of the shaft solved that (Just like doing shocks, the squared off end of the shaft gets round due to rust and a wrench won't keep the shaft from turning). The other issue was the size of the pickle fork needed. The size you usually use to do tie rod ends is too small, the slot in the middle won't fit the bolt so you need the bigger one you would use for ball joints. I can really tell the difference in the front end with the new unit. I would recommend to anyone to replace the stock unit no matter how many miles you have on the truck.
