solved my shimmy
Very easy to install. Took me 5 minutes. Solved my wheel shimmy. My stock unit had 190000 miles on it. It was worn out. Made a big difference.

I bought this to replace the leaky, worn-out stabilizer which was probably stock. It's a simple part to replace, taking one 18mm wrench on my JK. This part did not make it easier or harder to replace, as any replacement would have been as simple.
Where this part shines is in the fact it looks good and is made by a company known for quality. Time will tell if it holds up but in the couple of weeks I've had it, I am very satisfied.

I would buy this product again
I had Fords infamous death wobble on my 2005 F-250, until I decided to buy a set of Bilstein 5100 Series shocks and Steering Damper. The installation was a cake walk. I used to drive down the highway and worry about the smallest bump or pot hole in the road if I was driving above 60 MPH. After the installation of the shocks and steering Damper, I returned to the same stretch of road were I experience the death wobble and not only is the ride a heal of a lot better, but I have not been able to get the death wobble to happen again at any speed. I would definitely buy another set in the future.

Bilstein spells quality!
Bilstein is a favorite of mine due to its lasting quality and durability. This stabilizer put a new meaning to "bolt on" because it truly was just that easy, no surprises. Believe me I've wrenched on enough vehicles to respect this important and often over liked quality. All in all another great product!
By The Change from Beaumont, CA
After installation my steering wheel does not vibrate and the truck does not pull to the left like it did previously.

Great product, easy installation.

Nice Quality, All Hardware Included
Definitely worth buying the Bilstein 5100 for my 07 Chevy 2500HD. Good Quality Damper, comes with all the hardware you need to install. Soaks up bumps very nicely, I get less feedback through the steering wheel as well. Should have purchased this sooner.
I have an 04.5 Cummins Ram. I belive someone updated the stabilizer and went dual as well. Specs tell me to use the old style, but what I currently have on the truck has eyes on both ends. Is there measurements I can take to ensure proper ordering?
