Fitted a steering damper.

A bit of faffing about as I thought I might have cross-threaded a retaining nut - so took it off again to check, but I hadn't. A ramp would have cut the job time in half - at least), but all done and all seems OK.

As it is rush hour there's no point trying to check the benefits at speed, but drove it around all the side roads checking steering lock, etc. No strange noises and have just checked underneath, no strange rubbing anywhere (although I'm not adverse to a bit of strange rubbing on the right occasions). :ohmy:

Unfortunately the shock boot is just touching the steering bar, but it should keep the piston cleaner (hopefully).

Job done and thanks to Mark for his encouragement (and Paul for answering my previous question today).

Hi Mark,

Went for the Pro Comp with the fitting bracket from Rhino Ray. The fitting bracket was a great easy fit (bolts straight onto existing holes in the bumper bracket - unnecessarily long bolts tho') and holds the damper up high and absolutely level with the steering bar. Bought a bright red shock boot so it matches the CO's Jimny but it can't be seen anyway.

Thanks again. :cheer:

Hi Nicho,

It does seem to sit on the road better, but the real test will be bombing down an A road. Which I shall do tomorrow and will provide a further update on any/all benefits experienced.
