After on-board and dyno testing the Old Man Emu engineering team have developed a steering stabilizer/damper with increased compression and extension damping performance. This improved performance will assist in the overall ride and control of the JK Wrangler. To provide clearance from other factory suspension components Old Man Emu have utilized a rubber dust boot instead of the traditional steel guard. Note: LHD JK Wranglers require part #ARBFK50 to correctly mount the steering stabilizer above the tie rod. Left Hand Drive vehicles include all American JKs.
I upgraded the tires on my 2012 Wrangler to 33's. I started getting a small shimmy when I would hit bumps. It was probably from the added weight of the wheels and tires. I tried upgrading the steering stabilizer at first from one from Bilstein. This made my steering go left (it was gas charged). I returned that one and tried one from Rugged Ridge. That one was pretty much the same as the stock one. I tried this one from old man emu and it totally worked. It completely stopped the shimmy and the steering is completely smooth. I'm only writing this review so other people don't have to experiment with different stabilizers like I did. Try this one, it works!
