So, I simply stopped reading about it until I saw this on the form.
I did ask Steve Strombough from FR last year if they recommend this? He simply said that altering the vehicle from factory specs is not recommended and could not assure me the warranty would be unaffected.
So that's why I simply asked if this was since updated or proven incorrect.
Think I may just try it anyway.... With 1 addition. I will install the Roadmaster Steering Stabilizer also.
Great guide btw!!!!!

I also installed the Roadmaster Steering stabilizer when doing this mod. I still need to take it back out and finish centering though as it pulls slightly to the right. I took it out on the interstate after doing both mods and it handle a lot better. I ran at 65 and was just barely pushed by a couple of semi trucks, before they would nearly push me off the road going 65. I think after I finish centering the Steering stabilizer I shouldn't have any push - I was slightly being pushed in the direction that the stabilizer was pulling.
BTW you will need the RBK9 bracket Kit if it is a 2015 F53 18K Chassis
To loosen the nuts/bolts to attach the bracket you will need 15mm and 18mm - 18m deep socket and 15mm wrench on back and 18mm wrench and 15mm standard socket on the front as you cannot fit a socket in on that side. you will need a 3/4" wrench and 3/4" deep socket for the two large bolts that attach the stabilizer at each end and a 9/16" deep socket for the two U-Bolts....this is all assuming that your chassis is the same as mine.
Also, my chassis had the factory installed front track bar on the driver side so I had to install the bracket on the passenger side
Well worth the money!!!!
Hope this helps,
