Installing a Steering Stabilizer

I ordered a trailmaster steering stabilizer kit for my 33" tires. I opened it up to find a set of crapy instructions inside, something that trailmaster is so famous for. Anyways it says to atatch the cylinder (spelling?) side of the shock into the factory mount. From what I can tell it is supposed to be on the A arm mount that is closest to the front bumper. There isn't a mount there. Is this the right place to look or is it somewhere else. And if this is the right place to look, is there a mount I can buy that bolts or welds on? Thanks.

From my understanding the stock stabilizer mounts on the front crossmember, I've seen the holes for it on mine it looks like a horizontal shock mount.

Re: Installing a Steering Stabilizer

I went back to the off road place I bought it from and Mike looked under my truck and told me that the mount wasn't there, I asked why it wouldn't be there and he said either it's the year of the truck or a suspension option. That is why rancho makes a kit with an aftermarket mount. So I returned the trailmaster stabilizer kit and we ordered the mounting hardware from rancho and a trailmaster stabilizer shock, Mike said rancho stabilizers aren't as good a product as the trailmasters. They will be in tomorrow and hopefully I can tell you all about how it went on and that I can put my 33" tires on.
