2017-2019 Steering Stabilizer

Has anyone installed a steering stabilizer on their L5P? I know they stopped installing the frame bracket on them. If anyone has info could you please share picture and a link! Thanks in advance!!

I installed the BDS steering stabilizer on my 2019 Chevy 3500HD CC SB HC. Downside ... the BDS mounting bracket attaches to one of the lower control arm bolts on the driver side ... which requires relieving the torsion key on that side to install. But as expected BDS supplies a very nice kit with a good shock designed for the application. Much higher quality than the Fabtech kit in my opinion (had Fabtech previously). Definitely reduced the wheel chatter on washboard gravel roads. Unfortunately I do not have any pics currently ... but will post when I do. Here is the weblink: http://bds-suspension.com/product-di...mc-stabilizers ... our part #’s: 85430 (cylinder) & 55379 (bracket kit).

2019 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD 6.6L Duramax (L5P) Crew Cab 4x4 SRW Standard Box High Country Loaded w/ Rear Entertainment Package, Fabtech 4” Suspension Lift w/ 35’s on Vision Valor Wheels, Luverne Grille Guard w/ Parking Sensor Relocation Kit, Rhino Roll Bar (Sport Bar 2.0) w/ 8” Hella Off-Road Lights, Banks Derringer / iDash / Intake / DPF Back Exhaust, Fabtech Stealth Shocks w/ Front Limit Straps, Front & Rear Hellwig Sway Bars, Airlift Air Bags w/ Wireless Air, DuraFlap Mud Guards, S&B MAP Sensor Spacer

I have the BDS as well, also installed the Cognito PISK. The PISK works 100% better IMO.

Did anyone do a double setup? I see for the single goes but I'm curious as to the double.

The SuspensionMAXX kit is the route I went with on my 2016 and used the Bilstein B8 5100 dampener (33-196619). Simple install and have had it for a year now and couldn't be happier. No more constant minor adjustments with the steering wheel traveling down the highway and greatly improved the feel as well. I'm not a fan of the digital steering assist, at least on my 2016.
