    okay, I just put a rough country dual shock steering stablizer on my 87 Jimmy. I have noticed that the mounting bracket has slipped a little bit and my power steering pump is puking a little fluid, okay a lot of fluid. I have a feeling it is due to the increased effort in getting to full lock but not sure. I set my shocks with a little compression in them and thinking I may have overdone it. Any suggestions.

    Make sure the stabalizer bracket is mounted to the tie-rod at the correct piont, in order for the stabalizer shock to have full travel from steering wheel lock to lock. If where the bracket mounts to the tie-rod is not in the correct position, the shock will either bottom out, or extend to its full length before the steering wheel get to it's full lock turn capablities.
