Hydraulic Steering Assit for the 2011

For those of you with bigger wheels and tires this is what you need! I tried all kinds of different stabilizers and this fixed all my steering issues with road walk, and a little bump steer. It makes the steering feel tight and firm, tracks great down the road! My past superduty's i never had as sensitive of steering as i have with my 2011. This kit from PSC motorsports is a one of a kind as of right now. My truck was the R and D truck and the kit is going to start being manufactured in the next couple weeks. I also have the Carli high mount stabilizer on my truck which helped over the stock unit but paired with the ram assist from PSC it feels awesome!

Looks cool. But it seems like you have to have some kind of underlying issue. You are just masking it with the steering ram. You shouldn't even need it for 35" tires.

That PSC system looks Great!. Whos mounts did you use? I have an 02 with a 06 coil frontend the is almost imposable to steer at low speeds. I have gone through the new Redhead box New Ford Remaned pump but still cant turn the 35's

Is it a four link? I would be calling pure performance. Every once in a while a thread pops up like this, seems to correlate with four link kit geometry. Seems like it could be an alignment issue.

Mine without hydro-assist would turn 40's with just crossover steering with no problems.

Good Idea I will give them a call tomorrow. I had it alined a few months ago so it may be a time to get it checked

You are correct i didnt need a ram assist to turn the tires. It turned them fine before. But i Did the guys at PSC a favor by letting them use my truck to manufacture their kit for the 2011s . As far as "masking the underlying issue" I really never had any alignment issue, being i own a front end and alignment shop and the truck has been on the rack 4 times now to get the truck just right. The key was to add about 3 degrees positive castor.

Just from going what you posted it sounds like you have steering issues. Which if your alignment was done properly then your four link kit is not designed or set up properly. I would think a properly set up kit wouldn't do that at all.
