Question about Steering Stabilizer after HD steering install.

Well I got my HD tie rod and drag link on. (Rubicon Express).

However, now my drag link was hitting my Rough Country SS which was mounted on the driver side.

The only solution I found was to put it back in the stock location, however since the Rough Country SS is so big I had to angle the mount on the tie rod down a little so that the shock end of the SS did not hit the axle mount when I am turned all the way to the right.

My question is, besides it being lower is there any drawback to this? Will it not absorb shock now that the two ends to the steering stabilizer do not sit parallel to each other?

I have attached a pic so you can see what I mean..

I would think that as long it still moves freely back/forth, it would be ok. Other than it is now more susceptible to being smacked on a rock.

BTW- it is WAY to clean under there!

It will work OK until you smack it on something and it rotates up and you cant make left turns....had it happend, luckly it is a quick fix.

But what you really need to do is put on a high steer...move the draglink to the top of the knuckle as seen below. Now everything is protected and I have NO steering issues.
