    Default Steering Stabilizer install

    I'm trying to install a steering stabilizer in my 75 Scout II and am not sure how to go about it. Just putting in one and its just a basic brand, no special rancho or anything. I have an idea but not sure about the measurements. It's a Dana 44 with no spring lift. Just body lift. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks guys.

    I suggest you re-think this. If you need to stabilize the steering, you should figure out why before you start making modifications. There's a guy in Bremerton that makes a straight steer brace that fits perfectly on a Scout II because he custom designed it. There are 4 reasons why a scout has squirrelly steering, and a stabilizer doesn't fix any of them, and only helps when there are modifications.

    No problems with steering other than a little play in the wheel. I just thought it needed one cuz it had one when I got it. Granted that was with a really shitty SOA plus the 4" body lift. I thought maybe the play in the wheel might be because of no steering stabilizer. If that isn't the problem, do you have an idea what would be?
