Steering damper

So finally fitted my steering damper. What a difference ! Running kingpin extremes and it was a wrestle with the wheel now it feels comfortable with a single hand. Still a slight wobble with no hands on the wheel. I was a bit dubious and heard mixed reviews but definitely happy with it. Just need some manual hubs next :)

Happy you like it.
I also prefer the feel of the steering with a damper fitted, to me it's a bit more like a normal car, not so light, but I do appreciate it's a personal thing.
They do mask wear in the steering system which normally manifest as some degree of wobble, so keep an eye on the system. Mine was masking Kingpin bearing failure, but even after I repaired this I kept the damper, just prefer it.
Have fun
