While I was looking around the front end looked strange, and then it hit me, there's no steering stabilizer! Is this normal? I looked at where the attachment bracket would connect, and didn't see any scratches or anything like there had been something there. So is this normal? Did Ford ship these without Steering Stabilizers?
Steering stabilizers are over rated and only mask problems. Mine was missing when I bought my truck, but the brackets were there. While still on 33s, we bought an aftermarket one and promptly bent it off roading! Since the vibration I was feeling was the rotors going south, I never put it back on. Over the next 4 years I had 365/65-16 Toyos (14.5x34.5), no stabilizer, no issues. Now I have 315/75s, no stabilizer, no issues.
