steering stabilizer removal questions

Installing a set of dual steering stabilizers on my 06 F250. Directions say to remove the stock one and I have both nuts off but cannot get the pressed in part free. I have tried beating on it with a hammer and prying with a crowbar but still no go. Suggestions? What happens if I leave the stock one on the truck with the duals?

Re: steering stabilizer removal questions

Hit the outer brace(holds pressed part) with a hammer..it'll pop right out.

You can even see some hammer marks where I hit mine,...all ball joints are the same,..if you hit them where I pointed...sometimes just a light tap will knock them free.


This pic will give you an idea where to hit to remove those "pressed" joints....hit in the direction of the red arrow.

I drove around for almost a year before I finaly took it off. Spray it with some PB blaster and let it soak a bit then use a hammer.

Re: steering stabilizer removal questions

Depending on what kind of steering stabilizer setup you purchased, if you leave the stock on it will effect how wheel the return to center of the steering feels.
