    i just installed the steering brace a few weeks ago. No problems. Directions are not very good, so I went online and printed the CK5 writeup on installation. Then I just followed the pictures /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    You will have to work it in. Your truck may have a oil cooler so you might have that to contend with. Get a foot of 3/4 heeter hose and if the oil cooler lines touch the brace you have take the heater hose and cut it length wise and make a sleeve to protect the hose.

    Love the brace. You will notice a improvement in steering feel the first time you pull out of the driveway. It was well worth the money on my truck.

    The braces are real easy to install. You shouldnt have any problems.
