Question Replacing Steering Stabilizer on 1994 YJ Wrangler

I just bought a Rancho RS5000 steering stabilizer used for $25 bucks. The guy told me it has about 10K on it before he upgraded his whole system after a lift. All the hardware is present and still in the sealed package. He said jeep installed it originally and probably used the existing hardware. Anyway, any tips? I've looked for a video about doing this replacement and haven't found anything. I already sprayed the two bolts with pb blaster and I'm letting it soak overnight. Gonna tackle the switch out tomorrow morning. Anything I should know?

Oh yeah, will I need to get an alignment done after this?

Thanks!

There's not much to it. You may have trouble getting the studs\bolts to break free from the drag link and\or tie rod. You may be able to persuade it with a hammer. I think I've used a ball joint separator before. An alignment will not be necessary after the install.
