STABILIZER INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Jack up the front of the Jeep and lower onto jack stands to allow the front wheels to turn.


2. Install the center axle bracket with the supplied u-bolts as shown in Photo 1 with the edge of the bracket against the axle housing. Do not fully tighten at this time.


3. Install the ½” X 2½” bolt on the bracket and install on the tie rod on the driver side as shown in Photo 2 with the offset on the bracket to the inside and against the tie rod clamp—bolt can not be installed after installing bracket.
The offset must be to the inside to ensure the stabilizer does not bottom-out when turning.


4. Install the cover plate as shown with the ½” X 2½” bolt to secure the stabilizer to the bracket the ½” x 1” in the other hole. See Photo 3. Level the center bracket horizontally and tighten hardware using a 3/4” wrench on the stabilizers and 9/16” on the axle bracket. Be sure to install the flat washers as shown on top of the stabilizer eyelet.


5. Install the opposite ends of the stabilizer cylinders on the tie rod bracket bolts installed in Step 2. See Photo 4.


6. Slightly snug all brackets and turn the steering from side to side.
7. Make adjustments to the drag link clamp brackets to allow the full stroke of the stabilizer cylinders. Rotate the clamps to allow clearance from the stabilizer cylinder.
See Photo 5.


8. After the brackets are centered. Tighten with a 9/16”
wrench.
