Hi all,

I have a 2001 F-350 extra cab SRW 4x4 and I want to install a single Fox 2.0 Steering stabilizer. Wondering if anyone out there has experience with the install or would like to shed light on the performance of the product before I pull the trigger. Truck is going to be losing its 20x12/35x12.5MT for 17x9/285/75R17AT(KO2). Mostly used for road/gravel/construction use, but I do hunt in Idaho and California wilderness a few times a year. Any info is appreciated, thanks!:nerd:

every superduty 4X4 i have ever seen had one. gas or diesel. not sure on the 2 wheel drives though, because i never owned or drove a 2 wheel.
when i got the 2000, the stabilizer was bent. i went to the local junk yard and got one of a rear end wreck for $10

Okay thanks! Perhaps my father just didn’t see it. I’ll dig into it when I move to California and get my eyes on the truck. Thanks for the info!

Meh. You really don’t need one. I still have the stock one and it’s completely blown out. It’s just there for looks now. I would just toss a cheapo on it. Monroe would be my choice, lifetime warranty.

If you look under from the front of the truck in the passenger side middle, it should be staring you right in the face. It is right in front of the axle. It's just a black shock absorber mounted horizontally. That is all it is.

actually, a steering stabilizer is not a shock absorber. shocks do pretty much one way dampening.
they will let the vehicle rise with almost no dampening, and only dampen the down travel. steering stabilizers do 50-50 dampening.

I used to run a bilstein stabilizer with stock and 35" tires, I couldn't really tell any difference over a stock style el cheapo stabilizer. Monroe, gabriel, kyb...just as good, unless you are going for looks or want it to match your shocks.

I think the basic stabilizers can be found new for dirt cheap
