    Has anyone used a rancho 9000 shock as a Steering stabilizer before, I have a front dana 60 with 38 swampers, and was thinking of the adjustablity of the 9000.

    correct me if im wrong, but wouldnt a shock try to push one way and fight you when you try to turn the other way?

    A shock is suppose to slow down motion in both directions.

    Steering stabilizers are valved the same for compression and extention. Most shocks are valved differently for compression and rebound. Using a regular shock for a stabilizer would give more damping one way than the other.

    And I forgot one other thing, A suspension shock is not to be mounted horizontal.
