Notes on installing a Woods Steering Stabilizer Relocation Bracket

My stock steering stabilizer started to leak and I heard there was a TSB for it, so I went to the dealer and they replaced it with the upgraded version. Great, new free stabilizer. Unfortunately, I didn’t like the new stabilizer bracket, as you can see that it sticks down a lot more than the stock ’08 bracket:


So since I would be switching the new bracket with the ’08 stock bracket, and the stabilizer is nice and shiny new, I figured I would get a Woods relocation bracket from jeepswag.com to protect the stabilizer from tail hazards. Here’s what you get in the kit (good instructions, bracket and nut/bolt):


With my wheels centered, I removed the new stabilizer and bracket, removed the track bar bolt, put the bracket on the bolt, re-inserted the bolt and torqued it down to 125 foot pounds while keeping the hole on the left alighted with the stock hole in the bracket:


I then drilled out the hole in the left for the new bolt, inserted the bolt and torqued it down, measured and marked the maximum open, fully closed and midpoint parts on my steering stabilizer, and mounted it at the midpoint to the ’08 tire rod bracket:


I then turned the wheels fully left and right to ensure there was still space available with the stabilizer and then finally torqued down both ends of the stabilizer. You can see the new steering stabilizer has a plastic boot that covers the open end. I could remove it as it does rub a little on the track bar bolt, but I want to leave it on as it provides added protection to the stabilizer. You can also see there is much more clearance on the bottom, and no chance of hitting it on a rock without first trashing your tie rod:
