    Bump steer isn't much of an issue with rack and pinion steering. I mean there is some but nothing like old style steering.

    it'd be nice for wheeling sometimes, like when you hit that rock just right and it throws your steering wheel to full lock. i would hope that people who wheel terrain that could cause such a thing know how to hold the wheel so not to brake your thumbs, but a dampener would make it a little safer and comfortable, for people of any skill level realy.

    Nice truck! Wonder if there is a way to run it on a truck without a D.B. Kit. I had that happen where the wheel caught something when I was running the 16x10

    pretty sure it's just the two u-bolts on the outer tie rod end, and then an eyelet with that uses a steering rack bolt. not 100% on the second part, but i' sure you could use it without a drop bracket. worst case, you have to spend half an hour making your own inner brackets.

    Might try an snag a kit I seen laying around at a shop just worried due to the D.B. Kits have extened tie rods and not sure if the shock length might limit my steering radius

    3 times. Road force balanced too. Just one of those things I live with everyday. At least at 65mph and up it's gone.
