    I have an F-250 super cab. I bought the truck with the plow prep.on the lit. it shows it having a steering dampener. When I picked up the truck it was not there. The plow installer states they need to remove it in orde to put on the plow?? Anyone hear that before. I get play in the wheel and some vibration and think it would help. I bought the dampener and grade 8 bolts, but now need the bracket to mount to the tierod..anyone have theres removed??

    Never heard of this. I have a 2003 F250 & my steering dampener is still on mine. I have a Western Plow, what kind do you have? Eyesell has the same truck as mine & runs a Boss Plow,I don't know if he still has his steering dampener is on his or not? My brother bought a 2004 without offroad package & his did not come with one, but the bracket is on the truck. I guess that must be some option that FX4 gives you. Did you say it was on the truck before you had the plow installed? I can't imagine what would get in the way of it!

    I bought the steering dampener and hardware. Anyone know which way the shock mounts? Does the thicker reservoir end go to the outside? thanks
