Anything can be done!

How big are your tyres?? It's a waste money if they are smaller than 35's. Not nesseary at all. Get an adjustable damper at best. It just gives you options on the feel of the steering.


Howdy all
Can i ask if anybody has had a problem with their rtc steering damper. I fitted one 2yrs ago went through the Simpson and the damper lost the fluid, i fitted a replacement and went up the Cape and had to remove it and fit a normal one,i have traveled 4000km on the normal one with no problems. Just removed the spring and it is no good. I like the idea of the steering returning to the center, but do not wish to fit another as when it is faulty it causes the car to shake violently.

mine did, in my surf
I should have qualified my answer by saying that you don’t fit them to an IFS vehicle with a steering rack.

I’m not sure how you’d actually do it if you wanted to.

Older vehicles with a recirculating ball steering box etc. then that would be different.

I have a tough dog RTC damper on my GQ after a local brake & front end specialist recommended I fit one when the original damper was stuffed a few yrs ago I have a 4" lift with 285's no problems with it yet.
