    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.

    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.

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

    Yeah my buddy had to take $6000 in parts off his new JK because he just had a baby and doesn't trust the Jeep with the wobble he had. Nobody can trust a Jeep...not even Jeep owners.
