zzzzzzzz, I am soooo tired. Ok, the stock steering stabalizer is no larger than a #2 pencil. I did some reasearch and found a great replacement for the wuzzy one. The "kit" everyone has listed in their parts book requires this dumb a$$ adapter thinggie to work right (more stuff to break, go wrong, miss parts, sigh....). The Gabriel "SILVER E" series of steering stabalizer with the part number: 6801SE. I have heard bad about the rancho kits that bolt to the axle and the tie rod so I found this one. It is great! The steering stabalizer is abou 2~3" in diamater! The lengths are perfect (with a little to spare on the extention), it is cheaper thatn the steering stabalizer they have for the suzuki samurai + the dag gummet lame kit that they never have in stock! Check out NCO's site, the calmini steering stabalizer they stock is the same or very very similar to the one the guy @ the counter said would work with the zook, and then there is that ([email protected]
#(@#$(&#@$(&#@ adapter thing that they did not have instock. Luck me, the guy is real nice, I bring mine in, check this, that, woo that looks like it'll work, nope, check this one, wooo, perfect match, OUCH 34.00!, ok, shweew, cheaper than $20 +19.99 for that, you guessed it!
I am very very happy with the new steering stabalizer I have on my zook now, makes a large difference! Suggest getting this one vs. any other....
