    As part of my lift kit, 4Wheel Parts kicked in a Rancho steering stabilizer, Part #RS5004. I wanted to replace the stock stabilizer with this one. There doesn't appear to be enough mounting hardware. There is one stud, 2 nuts, washers, and lockwashers. That should be adequate to mount to the bracket on the axel, even though it will have to be drilled out. There is not a bolt to mount the shock to the tie rod. Anybody have any experience with installing a stabilizer in the OEM position? Should I forget trying to replace it in the OEM position and buy the single shock kit?
    I am going to run 33's so I shouldn't need a second stablizer?

    I'm running 35's and a single stabilizer, <font color=red>no prob</font color=red> 2 stabilizers is just more stuff to smoke when your wheelin it.
    Just my 2 cents
