Hello, new to the forum. A lot of great info available in this group... My question? I have purchased a Bilstein steering stabilizer for my 1995 Damon. It has original dampner on it now. Is there anything special I need to know to swap out the original with the Bilstein. Thankyou in advance. Ron in Az.

Hi Deserttrans, and welcome to iRV2. I can't help with your question as I have a class C chassis, but off hand I can't think of anything special to take into consideration other than just pulling the old one off and bolting the Bilstein in place. However, I'm sure someone with much more expertise will come on board and give you a definitive answer.

When I put mine on, I had to unbolt one of the big U-bolts that hold the spring on, take the nuts off, install a bracket, and hook up the other end with the proper length. About a 3 hour job (I work slowly), but you really need a strong impact wrench to get the two nuts off. I seem to remember that if you had the original Ford unit, the bracket installation wasn't necessary. The instructions with it are good.

Thanks for the info... I am just replacing the stock Ford one. It looks fairly straight forward, once I got underneath and looked. I am installing it and 4 new Bilstein shocks, as soon as it cools down here in AZ. 110 today, I'm holding out for some cooler weather.

Tnx Ron
