alignment/ steering stabilizer

Alignment shop suggested I replace the OEM Ford steering damper in the future. I tried looking up a Bilstein and can't come up with a number. Bilstein says they aren't making them for 2015 Ford E-450. I can't believe that!

Dealer sent me to a local alignment shop with FR approval.

Stagecoachdriver , try phoning a Ford dealer to see what the difference is between a 2013,2014 and 2015 , bet there isn't any so you could use one listed for a earlier year.

Sage...someone posted they used the "Roadmaster RSSA Reflex Stabilizer Unit" and said it worked great. The reviews seem to back that up. Blue ox also sounds really great...but is way expensive.

My catalogs show a difference between 2014 and 2015 damper.

Same with mine, it's a 2015 Forester but it's a 2014 Chevy chassis.

You are right!

I don't think Ford has changed anything on the front end in years. So, AllShocks.com has Bilstein Part Number: BE5-H453-H0 (24-174534) listed. Tried Amazon listing 2015 Ford E450 as vehicle and it said 'Does not fit your vehicle". But tried using 2013 and it does fit. So obviously Bilstein and Amazon need to get their site updated. So I will order one soon.
