    Can you tell if ill need to buy a mounting kit when I buy my steering stabilizer?

    Are the steering stabalizer mounts shown in the picture stock?

    And what is a "Replacement Cylinder Kit"? I am given this option to choose from on summits website.

    This is not a stock stabilizer but you can put a stock one there, this is just an aftermarket rep[lacement for stock.
    You don't need a mounting kit or anything and the replacement cylinder kit will not work for you, it's for a rebuildable shock wich this one is not.
    :D

    Thanks, well since I went with Rancho shocks I want to go with a Rancho steering stabilizer. Reading your repy above leads me to two different options on the summit racings website, but I dont know what one to choose or what the differences are?



    RAN-RS5408

    RAN-RS5402

    Can you help me choose?

    Well the RS5408 is a single shock style replacement for stock stabilizers, but needs the mounting kit to work.
    The 5402 is for dual shock applications, I wouldn't put that.

    Unless they carry the one that doesn't need the mounting kit.
    I remember buying one, but can't remember the number.
    It was a 5404, it will not need the mounting kit :D
