Steering stabilizer mount?

I just installed the Big Daddy tie road and drag link and am trying to figure out the mount for my stabilizer, itís a full size aftermarket, and was wondering does it have to mount from the axle housing to the tie rod or can I make a mount from the passenger side frame to the drag link?

Serious question: what is it that the steering stablizer is doing for you?

I know what they are, how they work, why people put them on...I am wondering what yours will do for you?

Where I am heading with this is you should be able to get along just fine without it. They are completely unnecessary in a properly functioning system.

I also recognize there is plenty of room for personal preference.

It is possible to mount the stablizer between frame and drag link but I would imagine you'd want it to be as parallel as possible. I have seen it done. Hopefully if it is a terrible idea someone will explain why. Personally, I don't run then because they tend to mask symptoms of other problems.

Just finished seeing a pic of the stab mounted to the top of the u-bolt plate.

I agree with the stabilizer not being necessary. I have been running without one for the past 5k miles with no ill effects other than a wobble that has developed within the past few hundred miles. I do plan to add one once I solve my wobble problem to reduce the wear and tear on the tie rod ends and other steering components.
