Steering Wheel Shake

Well i started to pickup some steering wheel shake when hitting a bump, crawled under, put my air tool on everything just to snug it all up, after I was done I seen fluid dripping from my(Skyjacker) Steering Sabilizer(from stem by the main body)...... the boot was ripped & the top was hitting & was sort of smashed in a little. Now I know why they make the Relocation Bracket. Put the new Stock one back on until I can get the Relocation Bracket & new beefy Stabilizer. Definitely wanna keep an eye on any over sized Stabilizer Install without the Bracket.

Yep common with JK's. Woods makes a steering stabilizer relocation that will except the stock or aftermarket stabilizer. It is only like 30 bucks stainless steel. Check it out on his website. He has specials going right now.
