    Steering stabilizer angle

    After installing my new PR44 the angle of the steering stabilizer changed from parralel to 15-25* off. There are no clearance issues or binding, will the different angle cause premature ware or any possible issues?

    Nope. All it does is move it up and out of the way so you don't smash it on the rocks like you would in the stock location

    I drop my control arms to grease them. It's a pain in the dick but it works. You could get 90* fittings for the future so you don't need to drop them to grease them

    Is this too much angle? Should I make a bracket to mount to the Evo bracket and level it out?

    BaddestCross mentioned that his Rancho 5000 folded being at an angle like that.... so maybe it depends on the shock.

    It wasn't the pitch, it was that I didn't have it parallel. That thing looks pretty steep, but I don't have any experience with that.

    The angle is similar, but the trackbar end mount is rotated 90 degrees from yours so the bushing rotates rather than scrunches as the steering moves side to side.

    Yeah, that seems way better the way you have it... with the coupler style at the tie rod, I don’t really have that option... So I think I’ll weld some tabs here (red circle) and level it out once I see the new shock. Going with Fox now.

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
