Steering stabilizer on my 08

I just put a Rough Country dual stabilizer on my 08 F350 and the directions said to remove the factory one. The only factory one is on the drag link, not the tie rod. I left it in place. I'd like to hear what others have done and why.

Other than that the kit went on easily and the steering feels rock solid.

I would take it off if you don't have 44" tires on the truck.
The dual set is plenty of dampening and will do fine. The steering box has to deal with the additional strain and it's just not necessary.

But you are not required to remove it. Pull it and go for a nice drive to see how it is without it.
The dual stabilizers have a nice solid feel to them don't they?

As of now, the truck is stock height and stock tires. I have a set of 37's to throw on when I install my 6" lift, but I wanted to get the steering stabilizer on while I have it sitting here. My thinking is that the lift might throw off the steering geometry enough to necessitate removing the stock one?
