Hmm interesting. Its solid steel and uses durathane bushings on both ends. In theory it should be more solid than the stock which uses softer rubber bushings..

well i dont know what to say but the bushings didnt look like they were lasting very well. showing wear with just 10000km on them. no play when checked but when removed they certainly didnt didnt look new. either way problem solved and i couldnt be happier with how it handles. atleast as good as when stock

Glad to hear. What did the bushings look like? Were they cracked? Do you have a pic?

I have the RE Drag link and I am using the new Bilstein 5100 series steering stabilizer in the OEM location. I love it, very well made.

I paid around $70. I just called Quadratec and gave them the Bilstein part number and they ordered it for me. I have had a Stock, Teraflex and Rough Country stabilizer and so far I like the Bilstein the best. Here is a pic...
