Steering stabilizer relocate with stock suspension

Does anyone know if the stock or an aftermarket steering stabilizer can be relocated out of harms way with a stock suspension?

I recently installed the Old Man Emu steering stabilizer and relocation bracket. It should also work with a stock suspension setup as far as I can tell.

Yes, I relocated mine with the bracket from Jeepswag, inexpensive and less than 30 minutes to install

makes me wonder why Jeep would make that a low hung fruit. Perhaps so when it gets ripped off they can charge you $$$ to replace it do to abuse.

Yes get a kit or make one to flip it on top of the tie rod. Then it is the tie rod thats in the line of fire next. They bend like al dente pasta too.

I installed my OME stabilizer with stock suspension and it hits the bottom of the frame when you bounce it around on the rocks...

Now this is the answer I give my wife on most of her questions that are as vague as the one I asked.

Thanks for the input guys, now I have a direction to take before I knock the stabilizer off.
