From what I've seen, it seems to be application specific whether the double stab setup works with a factory setup. It works for some but not others. My truck is stock but will be doing a leveling kit at some point, so I opted to just replace the OEM stabilizer with a Bilstein 7100. Huge improvement over stock to say the least.

I can verify that the Rancho dual steering stabilizer does not work with a stock height F250 CC Short bed. I installed only to find out that compression of the suspension allows interference with the pan I believe- but forget specifically what would hit. This would then cause the dual mount to rub against the steering arm causing drag.

I was told at 4 Wheel Parts when I ordered the stabilizer that the dual-kit would fit my standard height but it would require some cutting(?), I lost interest about that time so I have no more details.

Don't do it unless you have a leveling kit. Suspension will hit the stabilizer bracket at compression for sure. A single Rancho or Bilstein will do just fine unless you are really running the truck off road a lot. I am off road frequently and use the Bilstein 7100 and it does awesome. Not ok, awesome.

That was the advice I received also, stick with the single unless you will be off road alot or running 33's on the truck.

I pulled the trigger as well for a set of 4 9000xl's and a steering damper. I was originally dead set on only purchasing the Bilsteins, but after talking to many people I was assured the REAL Rancho's were as good as the Bilstein's. I say real because the ones I'm replacing were the Ford OEM Rancho's. I will also admit the price was very right with the $100 rebate and Rancho is manufactured by Tenneco, which is 10 minutes from the house. It's always nice to support the local boys

I'm having trouble finding rancho part numbers that match application and then match Amazon's listing. I wrote ranch last week for correct numbers for shocks and stabilizers. No answers yet.

Also inquired about the rebate being applied to 2 new shocks and the 2 new ranchos that came in my Tech R kit.
