Why do I need a Dodge Ram steering stabilizer bar? HELL BENT STEEL Dodge Ram Steering Stabilizer Bar Kits are a must-have to keep your steering performing at optimum levels and to protect your investment. The design of the solid-axle Dodge truck's steering gearbox is such that they have the tendency to wear out quickly. A worn out steering gearbox causes the "wander" in steering for which the Dodge Rams are notorious. Especially if you have a new steering box, you will want this bar kit to keep it strong. If you don't stabilize your steering gear box, over time your truck will develop play in the steering; this can be, at best, annoying but potentially dangerous. The Hell Bent Steel steering stabilizer bar kit is complete, easy to install, great looking and the HIGHEST QUALITY stabilizer bar on the market. We also use an industry-leading powder coating that keeps it looking good for years to come. All of our products have an attention-to-detail quality and durability that you do not get from other manufacturers.
What is a Dodge Ram steering stabilizer bar kit and how does it work? In a stock solid-axle Dodge Ram, as the wheels turn left and right, the sector shaft of the steering box is loaded and unloaded from side to side. This sideways loading will, over time, wear out the internal components of your steering box, causing it to fail. The HBS Dodge Ram Steering Stabilizer Bar Kitadds a mount to the bottom of your steering box, below your steering arm, that slides into a bearing housing that attaches to your truck's frame. This bearing carries the side-acting loads which allows the shaft to move freely, adds strength and dramatically extends the life of the gearbox.
How difficult is it to install the Hell Bent Steel Dodge Ram Stabilizer Bar Kit? Installation of the Dodge Ram steering stabilizer bar takes 1-2 hours, though certified mechanics report installing in 30 minutes or less. The Dodge Ram steering stabilizer bar kit is complete with instructions and all necessary hardware at OEM Grade or higher. Hell Bent Steel always recommends that a certified mechanic install our products; however, many customers choose to performed the installation at home with basic shop tools.
What is the warranty for the steering stabilizer bar kit? All Hell Bent Steel products are manufactured with strength and durability that allows them to have a limited lifetime warranty. We also offer 100% satisfaction. For more details, see our policies page.
