Steering Stabilizer W/ Currectlync Suggestions
 
I recently installed the Currectlync HD steering on my TJ. While the steering stabilizer was attached to the drag link I was having some binding issues with my trackbar brace at flex. A friend suggested I attach it to my tie rod... bad idea. I wasn't getting flex binding, however unbenounced to me I was binding at full turn I later came to realize.

It pretty much wrecked the OEM stabilizer and mangled the Currie bracket. I think I can salvage the bracket but the stabilizer rod is bent, old, tiny, and in need of replacement.

Good news is no real wobbles while running without a stabilizer. I am however looking for possible suggestions on which stabilizer to replace it with.

Whats the difference between the Skyjacker 9009 and 9119? aside from 15 dollars.

Skyjackers description....

9009: Steering Stabilizer ; HD OEM Replacement Kit ; Silver w/Black Boot ;

9119: Steering Stabilizer ; Single Kit ; Silver w/Black Boot ;

Both are on Amazon prime which is big because I live in Hawaii and shipping cost are ridiculous.

and.... I answer my own question. The 9119 just comes with new mounting brackets. Amazon and its lack luster product details strikes again.

I went with Rancho with the Currie. I am happy with it.

$30 and works very well. You don't need a high dollar dampener, all they are is a hydro shock valved with 50/50 bias. A heavy duty dampener can add more stress to an already over worked (from larger tires) power steering unit.
This is how mine is set up with currectlynk.

Works great with no binding.

BTW, that is a heck of a spacer between the dampener eye and Currie bracket. That's probably why you're hitting the track bar.

I can't tell what is going on in that first photo but it sure doesn't look like it was assembled correctly... which leads me to believe that is likely what caused the problem in the first place. It should look like what is in the photo in All Terrain TJ's post which is right. Something else is going on, hard to say what it is at this point. :)

The main difference between his set up and mine, is I have a track bar brace. The trackbar brace literally sits on top of where of the shock end when flexed out. So I moved it to the tie rod, flexed it out and it was fine. I didn’t realize how much movement there would be while in turns. I actually felt some binding in the parking lot, took it home check it out, and that was the result.

Track bar brace? :confused: Do you mean steering box brace?

leaver2000 07-17-2013 04:53 PM

Nope, trackbar brace. It comes with the Full Traction LA. This is how is how it was set up when I was binding on my brace.
