I purchased this as an OEM replacement part. When I went to install it on my F-250 Super Duty I discovered that the threaded portion of the shaft was to short to work with the supplied rubber bushings and there was no way to get the locknut started. The simple fix was to use one of the thicker new bushings and one of the thinner OEM bushings along with a bushing cap. Also all of the images of theis part show a Dual Stabalizer and in the discription it descibes it as a "Dual Tube Design" Now I understand what it means, however it would be easy for some to assume they are getting a daul stabalzer kit, versus a single shock. A good product and it certainly improved the steering and handling of the truck. There was no Shock Boot included but fortunately I had a matching blue one on my parts rack.

GREAT ADD ON
Really helped out. If you are running big tires 35's and up this will stop the wobble in your wheel when you hit bumps. Super easy to install

works good but shocks hard to install
Installed on my 03 H2. Shocks were a pain to install. The shock stud is to short to try and start the nut. Had to grind down the rubber bushings. The tie rod brackets look a little chessey with the extra long u bolts sticking out. Overall good quality and performance.

I purchased one of these stabilizers after crushing my last stabilizer. I wasn't expecting anything special but after installing it and getting some drive time in on it the variable valve setup on this stabilizer makes a fairly substantial difference compared to a stabilizer with a fixed valve especially if you have oversized tires

STOPS THE DEATH WOBBLE

Easy install so long as you have a decent tool kit. My suggestion? Turn the wheel all the way to the left and extend the shock all the way instead of wheels to the front and attempting to figure out where the halfway point of the shock is. Also buy a shock boot for the shaft, the kit doesnt include one. Ive driven over 200 miles and with a 6 inch lift and 35 inch tires steering shake and highway vibration are almost completely unnoticable. Best drivability upgrade in my opinion

I WOULD BUY THIS AGAIN
IF YOU DONT HAVE YOUR BRACKET SET RIGHT IT WILL BLOW YOUR SHOCKS
