The FOX Performance Series Adjustable Through Shaft (ATS) steering stabilizer offers unrivaled steering control and a striking high tech appearance. The technologically advanced design cancels unwanted steering forces in both directions, taking the place of two conventional opposing stabilizers. It will also respond to your input with 24 clicks of external adjustment to fine tune the feel. The integrated reservoir allows for additional fluid capacity and improves cooling during extreme use. Also included is FOX's relocating hardware that moves the steering stabilizer up and out of the way utilizing a new track bar relocation bolt and tie-rod mounting clamp. The ATS represents a revolutionary breakthrough in stabilizer design.
The vehicle was a 2012 Rubicon with a 3.5" AEV Lift and 35" Procomp tires. There was a good amount of bump steer going on. After installation this was corrected. I believe I set the valving at 7 clicks out from maximum. The photos in the instructions are very poor and even being an expert mechanic the only way to figure out proper installation was to see "how it could fit". Clearly the instructions are based on someone who already knows how to install it vs could a gradeschooler understand this. Also it is impossible to remove the stock stabilizer mount on the tie rod without a torch to heat and open it up enough to clear the body of the tie rod because the mount is factory slid on before the tie rod ends are screwed on.
Will this product work with a steering stabilizer relocation bracket from a 4 inch lift kit?

Can you install this stabilizer on stock 2010 Jeep Wrangler Sport that does not have a lift kit? Seems from installation instructions you can. Is it necessary or recommended to add optional 1 5/8" tie rod assembly?
What about Fox Shocks,#'s 985-24-027 and985-24-208. Can they just bolt on to existing brackets?
Last do you have a installation location near my zip code (07405)?

Yes, the Fox Racing Shox 2.0 Performance Series ATS Stabilizer FOX983-02-070 will fit the stock height vehicles. Part Number: FOX985-24-027 will fit the front and Part Number: FOX985-24-028 will fit the rear of your vehicle. They are all a direct bolt-on installation. Thank you.

I understand this item is for the OEM tie-rod. If I decide to upgrade my tie-rod to an aftermarket heavier duty one at a later time, would I be able to upgrade the tie-rod coupling with the proper size without having to purchase a whole new stabilizer?
