Fitting a Steering damper kit
- Topic Author
I recently fitted AT tyres and Grayston 32mm wheel spacers, as a result I now have a little steering wobble, Kingpins ok, wheels balanced, wheel bearings ok, so I have ordered the steering damper from Jimny bits.
This one: http://www.jimnybits.co.uk/shop/jimny/jimny-steering-damper-kit/prod_8.html
Pro Comp option.
unfortunatly as I am a Jimny NEWBIE! not 100% sure how to fit, can anyone help with a piccy or instructions. cheers.
l replaced one of the tie-rod ends after getting some death wobble at 45 mph' so it's not always the king pins.
On my jimny it's been the wheels balancing and two tie-rod ends, 40,000 miles on the same king pins not to bad.
As you can see from the photo of the tie-rod ends, they have two different length threads so you will need to measure as in the photo, from the outside of the tie-rod end to the locking nut, so it fit in the same place as the old one on the steering bar.
Hope this helps.

same problem that happened to me
mine still wobbles
looking forward to watching how you sort this
Might follow dirtydogz's thinking and try sticking on some new tie rod ends
what do you do to check if they're dodgy
some pics that might help
It clamps to the o/s chassis rail across to the rear steering bar.
The top picture looks incorrect, it does clamp to the axle, but then to the rear steering bar up and out of harms way.

Quick report back, I have fitted the jimny bits steering damper kit, and I have to say, why don't jimny's come with these things as standard, WOW!! steering in really smooth, no more wobbles. On ther motorway at 65 MPH, yes not a typo, 65MPH, the drive was smooth.
Well worth the investment.
