it's only for the steering damper (stabilizer) that doesn't fix the actual issue.

They put out a TSB last year (forget how long ago), maybe it was a recall but I got the notice to take it to the dealer for an upgraded stabilizer.

I took a pic of the part number stamped on it before taking it in, the replacement had a different number but otherwise looked the same; maybe it was firmer (what she said)

warranty extension of up to 8 years or 90,000 miles pffft.. may as well send out bags of shit


Caught the Bug
Just received this today. Haven’t looked into it. If it’s anything like the last class action suit I attached to it netted me the equivalent of a gallon of fuel. \_(ツ)_/¯
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like this is going to help the people that fixed the actual issue… (Steering Box). Hopefully, this is only the first step. Considering Jeep has swapped any stabilizers that were involved, I’m not really sure what the point to this is. May help those who swapped the stabilizer themselves…
