steering help needed

I've seen a bunch of these trucks with steering stabilizers on them either factory or aftermarket. My truck didn't have one from the factory and I'd like to install one to help minimize the wearing down of my steering components. I have an 03 f350 and I've seen a bunch of trucks with the dual inline set up and that is what I want. But I have heard that I can't get that and I can only have the dual stacked set up.

Can anyone help me out as to why I can't have the inline set up?

or if you have an inline set up with your front leaf springs can you point me in the right direction as to where to find such a kit or how it installs?


thanks

I have the fabtech brackets on mine. It's an 02 f350. It's the opposing type dual which is what i think your taking about.

are the stabilizers you have on that kit stem to eye or eye to eye?

7 plus years, no stabilizer, even ran 14.5 wide Toyos without one. IMHO a stabilizer only masks front end problems.

I think it is more for looks on a leaf sprung truck. I ran 40x15's on mine without a stabilizer and it drove fine.
