Usually to help correct a problem like "Death Wobble". Tho some front axle fronts benefit from a damper..

I use a Mercedes-Benz or VW beatle type on some axle setups.. No pics. But a simple clamp bracket on tie rod to a stud type bracket on the frame. Makes a good setup..

If it's because you have "Death Wobble" Fix what is causing it... Check your toe in,, On some you may even have to run toe out..

But If this is the case,, I would be looking into why it has "Death Wobble" in the first place....

My post was mainly aimed at those that replied, without mentioning that it was in the wrong forum. I realize that Rick is a newbe and wasn't aware of the correct procedure, but everyone else should have been. I probably should have written it like this: Why are we asking.... and ANSWERING a tech question in the introductory forum???

total check out .

If you have used parts check out king pin bushings, tie rod ends. steering linkage. then alignment, Castor, camber, toe, I bought a 37 ford dropped axle for $ 25, It wasn't right, and later found the car had slid sideways into a tree. WE had a 50 ton press at work and were able to fix it in about 30 minutes.
