BDS Suspension is now offering redesigned dual steering stabilizer kit for the 2017 Ford F250/F350 Super Duty 4WD trucks. These stabilizer kits are based off the widely popular dual steering stabilizer kits for the 2005-2016 Ford Super Duty, updated to fit the 2017 models and featuring the newer BDS center nameplate. This steering stabilizer kit is designed to supplement the factory steering stabilizer and improve overall drivability by eliminating and front end shimmy your truck might have caused by oversized tires.

These new dual steering stabilizer mounting is 100% bolt on, allowing installation of either the NX2 or FOX 2.0s steering stabilizers in an end-to-end configuration across the front steering. The new mounts are built from ultra-strong 3/8" steel, finished in a durable textured black powder coat with a riveted stainless steel center BDS badging. The center bracket uses u-bolts to mount to the axle while the outer brackets use a no-slip design that clamps around the tie rod ends. With the brackets in place you have the option to mount your choice of NX2-series hydraulic cylinders or FOX 2.0 gas cylinders. The FOX 2.0s feature 50/50 gas pressurized cylinders and a light weight aluminum body for superior dampening and the ultimate handling experience. These steering stabilizer kits are compatible with most 2"+ lift kits on the market. Upgrade your 2017 Super Duty steering stabilizer with these new dual kits from BDS Suspension.

    I am in the middle of installing the 2″ leveling kit w/ fox 2.0’s on my 2017f250. I did not order a steering stabilizer, but am wondering now, will i need it to avoid bumpsteer or loose steering on the highway? The tires are 325/60/20 (or 35×12.5×20 if the bigger ones rub) so not really that much oversize. I do lots of highway driving.

      Hey Seth, while the dual steering stabilizer isn’t a requirement when lifting/leveling your new Super Duty, it is a popular upgrade to help eliminate any front end shimmy caused by the larger tires on rough terrain on and off-road. From the factory your truck has a single steering stabilizer installed. My recommendation is to install the leveling kit, get the truck re-aligned and if you are having any shimmy/wandering then update to the dual steering stabilizer kit.

      Hey Steve, its mentioned in the description as well as under the important kit notes that this dual steering stabilizer kit requires 2 or more of lift to be installed for sufficient clearance. It is not recommended for stock height trucks.

    will your kit allow full lock turns? or will it limit the turning radius a little?

    Reply
    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Jonathan, this steering stabilizer kit will not limit how tight you are able to turn the steering. It just adds more resistance to control steering feedback caused by oversized tires.

        It requires 2” plus in description. Will this work with your 2” leveling kit on the 2017 f250? Thank you.

        • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

          Hey Kevin, it’ll install just fine. 2″ lift and 2″ leveling kit are the same, either way your getting 2″ of front lift which is what is needed for the steering stabilizer kit to have enough clearance.

      Hey Tommy, while they are similar, we have a different dual stabilizer kit available for the ’05-16 Ford Super Duty 4WD trucks.

    I just had the Fox 2.0 dual stabilizer installed along with the 6 inch BDS lift about 3 weeks ago on my 2017 F250. The steering has been extremely loose ever since. I checked to make sure tire pressure is correct and it is. What do I need to do tighten up the steering? Have there been other similar issues with the new stabilizer? It can make you a little nervous on narrow one lane roads. Thank you.

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hi Deja, I’m sorry to hear your having trouble with Super Duty. I’m not suited best to answer tech questions, but will say that the dual steering stabilizer (especially with the FOX gas charged cylinders) is designed to firm up the steering and reduce the front end shimmy caused by oversized tires on rough terrain. Some of the higher end model 2017 Super Duties came with adaptive steering from the factory which may be the culprit. Contact our sales/tech support team for more on the topic so they can help get it resolved. (517) 279-2135 or tech-bds@sporttruckusainc.com

    Hello, I’m getting conflicting information on retaining the OEM stabilizer in conjunction with this duel set up on my 2017 F250. I called your tech support and they said that it should be removed and it also states that on the installation directions. I’m seeing here that you are saying that it supplements the OEM stabilizer. if retaining the OEM stabilizer is an option, can the OEM stabilizer be upgraded to a Fox 2.0 stabilizer in its place in conjunction with this dual stabilizer kit?
    Thanks

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hi Marco, thanks for reaching out and I apologize for the confusion. Ultimately either setup will work. The OE stabilizer (or other non-pressurized stabilizer) can be used in combination with our dual stabilizer setup, or the OE stabilizer can be removed. The FOX 2.0 stabilizers use 50/50 valving with 50psi, we offer them in pairs to oppose each other on the dual setups, however they aren’t available as an OE replacement FOX stabilizer.

    Will this dual steering stabilizer work for a 2018 f250 fx4?

    Reply
    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hi Carlos, at the time this announcement was posted they had only been tested on 2017 models. These steering stabilizers since been confirmed compatible with all 2017-2018 Ford Super Duty models.

    I just installed a fox 2.0 dual steering stabilizer on my 2017 f250 and it has made my truck feel like I’m all over the place, especially normal driving. I did not remove the stock stabilizer but just wondering if I should have or if something else is going on.

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Clint, you shouldn’t be having any issues with the steering stabilizer setup, that said its difficult to diagnose over the internet without all the details. 2 options I’d recommend:
      1) Contact the BDS tech support team by phone at (517) 279-2135
      2) Head to your local BDS dealer so they can diagnose, http://bds-suspension.com/distributor-lookup

      Hi Sergio, that dual steering stabilizer setup is a direct fit on all ’05-19 F250/F350 4WD models so yes, you’ll be able to install it on your 2012.

    Will this setup work on a 2017 f450?

    Reply
    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hi Austin,
      while the F250/F350 dual stabilizer will physically bolt on an F450, there are a few differences with that axle that cause the cylinders to contact at full turn. For that reason we don’t list it as compatible with the F450 models.

    Does it matter which way you put the shocks on? I currently have the body of the shock to the center…

    Does it matter which way you place the shocks? I currently have the body of the shock to the middle. Is this a problem? I’ve seen them both ways. Thank you!

      Hi Kevin,
      while in most cases the steering stabilizers can be mounted either direction, they are designed to be mounted with the cylinder towards the outside to provide optimal clearance when turning.
