Attached Stabilizer... What brand is it?

http://www.irv2.com/forums/attachmen...1&d=1441682036

I was under my rig checking out a mouse nest and saw this. I have been reading posts on steering stabilizers and saw this. Its on a 200 Damon Challenger 335.
Is this standard equipment or is this an add on? There are no readable markings or labels on it. If it is an add on what brand and where can I get a replacement when I need it?

Looks like a bell crank. Bilstein stabilizers are yellow?

I know it's hard to make out due to the camera angle but there is an arm (bell crank) attached to the steering box that has the shock bolted to the frame. The yellow shock made me think it was a blister but there are no recognizable markings. I have nothing to compare it to so I was contemplating replacing it since is 15 years old.

Bilstein shocks and struts for cars and trucks - Shockwarehouse.com

May have to call to confirm fitment but it sure looks like this one.

Yes that does look like it and it covers the workhorse chassis. BTW where is the specific chassis data plate normally located on the chassis?

What chassis is under that Damon? If you don't know if it's Workhorse or Ford, what engine is it? 454 GM V8 engine would be a Workhorse; 6.8L V10 would be a Ford.

That sure looks like the Bilstein stabilizer strut for a Workhorse, but I don't think the Ford used one like that.
