I ordered this one from Amazon for my 2017 stock (no level or lift) F-250 Platinum 4x4 Diesel:

Fox 985-24-001 Steering Stabilizer. It cost ~ $148 with free shipping.

Easy install (got a Lisle 41970 heavy duty pitman arm puller at the same time - made removing the factory stabilizer easy).

Fits well - improved front end stability and steering wheel feed-back.

Very nicely made.

Jim

Sort of repeating what I just posted in another staballizer thread.

That part number above, while may fit, it not supported by Fox. That's not to say it won't work, but it has to make you imagine why they 2017+ have been out for 3 years and they don't officially list it and sell them and make money? So buyer beware.

When you search 2017+ on Fox the only part number they list is their ATS. That's what I bought and have been very happy with it.

Yes its expensive - for reasons explained in other posts (https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1...l#post18387102) - but well worth the investment, fully rebuildable. I got mine during black Friday for $380

Results at Fox Site when you search 2017+:
https://www.ridefox.com/product.php?...ion=Stabilizer


The question I have it, why do you want to replace the OEM one? I only replaced mine because I run 37's.

I don't understand why buy the single when they make a dual that forces both tires to stay strait , far better design , for close to same money

thats what the Fox ATS does. But with a single unit in stock location. And cheaper.

read about the benefits of an ATS here. Motorcycles been using them for years.

Because the op wants an oem replacement.. Maybe he has a stock truck. Not lifted... The duals only work w a lift

Correct. Just a leveling kit and if the stock stabilizer is anything like the "rancho" shocks then they aren't very good imo. So as I order them I want to order the stabilizer. I dont Baja or even really go offroad although half of the streets are like late 1800 cowtown streets here lol so I'm quite sure just a higher quality oem replacement is just fine.

Exactly what I did, same reason. Kept it simple and turned out so nice. 2.5" level, Fox 2.0's all the way around and the Fox (single) steering damper.

you can get the King stabilizer for about 250 heavier unit. but I don"t think you will need it unless doing some heavy duty off roading
