Question Dual Steering Stabilser & ARB HD Diff Cover?

G'day There,

I've been loking around for a Dual Opposing Steering Stabilser system with specifics.
I have a single Tough dog Steering Stabiliser which is not ideal due to the amount the centre bracket fixed to the tie rod hangs down below the line of the axle housing. This seems to be common design of the single set ups.

The Top Gun Dual stabiliser design (going by the photos) solves both of my concerns that other designs seem to have. And that is, there is no bracket clamped around the tie rod and the cylinders are well up out of harms way.

However I have another concern with fitting the Top Gun set up to my 2005 Aussie (2003 US) F250 4x4 Superduty. That is I have an ARB Air Locker in the front diff and in turn have fitted an ARB Diff cover.
This Diff cover is thicker than the stock diff cover and I'm concerned that the section of the bracket which attaches to the axle housing (excellent idea) and utilises two of the bolt holes for the diff cover may not fit or would require modification

Have Top Gun or other members of the forum fitted the Top Gun Dual set up on a Superduty with an ARB or any other after market diff cover?
And if so; how was it done?

I'm really keen to get one of these kits as I see it as been the ideal design, but need some advice to the above concerns.

Cheers Fellas,
Reg.

Reg,

First off, thanks for the compliment on our design. We actually spent alot of time and development on trying to eliminate the issues with the tie rod you described.

With that being said, I talked it over with our guys in manufacturing to see what we can do about your delima. This is actually a very simple solution. My techs recommend measuring the thickness of the ARB diff and find the difference in thickness your ARB diff has over the stock cover and make a "shim" that measures the exact difference the ARB cover has over the stock one. Then you simply place the "shim" in between our bracket and the axle. To act as a "spacer". With the new "spacer" you will need longer bolts than the bolts we currently provide.

That will push the main bracket forward slightly but will not adversely effect our stabilizer at all. Let us know if you need further explanation and/or help with this.

Thanks
-Adam

Your Thinking outside the square and coming up with this design is to your credit. I've just finished reading a number of threads with blokes having this same issue as I have, but with stock diffs on some of the other makes. Seems others haven't put as much thought in as you blokes.

With that being said, I talked it over with our guys in manufacturing to see what we can do about your delima. This is actually a very simple solution. There ya go..your an ideas man. My techs recommend measuring the thickness of the ARB diff and find the difference in thickness your ARB diff has over the stock cover I'm away at sea at until the second week in August, I'll do these measurements when I get home and get back to you then with the differences and make a "shim" that measures the exact difference the ARB cover has over the stock one. Then you simply place the "shim" in between our bracket and the axle. To act as a "spacer". With the new "spacer" you will need longer bolts than the bolts we currently provide No problem there, as long as get the specs on the bolts, I'll just get longer ones. So it all sounds like a simple solution and an easy DIY modification, and I can't see any reason why this wouldn't work

That will push the main bracket forward slightly but will not adversely effect our stabilizer at all. Let us know if you need further explanation and/or help with this.

Thanks

Best regards,

No problem at all reg! Once you get the sizes, we can do some quick calculations to see what size bolts you need.

Let us know if you have any further questions and i would be happy to help.
