    It is pretty easy to see it is MUCh stronger than stock. I got the stabilizer kit and they even sent the extra jam nut because I told them I was planning on using the same end joints that Steve used in the article.
    Man it looks tough! Can't wait to put the ends on and go slap it on!

    After I read about that I really wanted one. Let me know how it turns out and if you ran into any install troubles. Thanks.

    I am having one problem with installing the left-hand tie rod end. It seems like the threads were tapped crooked or something because tie rod only wants to go in at an angle. I sent an email to RockStomper and they asked that I try to deburr it with a file and it that still doesn;t work that they'll replace it.
    So far, excellent customer service - will let everyone know how it turns out. Just wish I could go ahead and bolt it on!
