you have any other pics of how that stabilzer is mounted to the crossmember? i am doing mine tomorrow and the crappy black and white pics on the instructions suck!
that isn't a bought stabilizer......the upper bracket on the crossmember is a stock '79 F-150 stabilizer bracket....it is the bracket that attached to the tie-rod and the other i had my cousin make in his fab shop...............i had the steering stabilizer shock that was new, and have another if i can figure out how to make a second stabilizer work i will install it!
i just held the bracket in the center of the lowest point and marked it with a sharpie....then pilot drilled then drilled the 2... 1/2" holes......the i put the shock on that bracket and pulled the cylinder out half way, put the other bracket on the tie-rod and tightend it down.....hope this helps!
