As per instructions and fitment guide on dual stabilizer kits, they only work on lifted/leveled trucks.

I got the Rough Country N3 Kit and it works great. Got rid of all bump steer and feels really tight. I left the stock stabilizer in itís place after trying without it. A little bit of a workout for parking maneuvers and steering wheel doesnít return to center as quickly on corners.

Exactly but FOUNTAIN man doesn't seem to understand that.

I took your advice.
just ordered it from stage 3.
said they would let me know when it ships

be there answer?
No issue with warranty - your stabilizer will now be covered by Fox since it will be their stabilizer.
Dealer likely won't do anything unless you have real death wobble - then they would do the TSB fix, although with a 2019 - your truck probably has the "new and improved" factory stabilizer.

Relax there internet tough guy..didnt mean to get you all mad..its just a discussion over a stabilizer. The OP does not want duals...hes looking for a stock replacement..we will leave it at that. No hard feelings

Your kelderman system probably replaces every component in the front end making a dual fit even when lowered..But on a straight stock truck a dual system will not fit due to clearance issue.

I installed a new Fox 985-24-001 Steering Stabilizer on my 2017 F250. It made a whole lot of difference!
The Ford put on new steering stabilizer on my pickup and it only lasted 5,000 miles! It was shot with 1/4 inch of play when I took it off! It had so much bump steer that I canít stand it! Iím so glad I went with Fox!
Ford, are you listening???? I wish Ford put Fox brand steering stabilizer on new pickups as a standard equipment!

He has no idea what he's talking about. The Kelderman setup uses a completely different sway bar setup, which is why you can raise and lower it so much. You cannot use a dual axle mounted stabilizer on a stock truck. You'll bash that thing off the first speed bump you hit.

Thought I'd add what others have already confirmed. I just called FOX directly and they verified the 985-24-001 single stabilizer WILL fit 17+ trucks. They are updating their website.
The only caveat is if you receive one with the bump spacer, simply cut it off. It is not needed.
