the stock setup for the steering stabilizer is a plate that goes between the spring and the u bolt plate. it sticks out the front and has a stud on it or the end of the stabilizer. I don't have a pic on hand but i'll try to run out and get one if I can get someone to get my sleeping son off my back... lol

I can't see the other end of ours but i'm assuming it's the universal kit that just has a u bolt around the axle tube.. they are a bear to get right and sometimes never can

That's the way this should be mounted. Pushing it all the way to the axle is too much of an angle. it really should be almost straight. OK, I probably can fab something to work.

Like mentioned in the other thread, the stabilizer bar just needs to be turned down at the tie rod end. it looks like someone fine tuned the alignment and they were just too lazy to unbolt the stabilizer shock to reset it correctly.

It won't work that way, when I turn the steering the rods, they separate slightly, which increases the distance from the axle. On the old shock I took off, the threaded stud on top was bent almost a full inch over, because of the direction the shock is getting pulled. That's why I need to make a bracket to mount off the leaf spring perch, that' ll give me a few more inches to straighten it out. Also, just turning it over it hits the front diff cover, also because of the angle.Once I mount it to the perch it'll be fine because it'll be almost perfectly straight, with the mounts, not at a 45 degree angle. Thanks
