I thought I'd make a posting regarding the installation of a steering damper on full sized Chevy G-Series Vans. I ran into a lot of problems figuring out the installation of this particular kit due to extremely archaeic instructions, and it seemed like others around on the forums here had similar issue. So, I figured I'd make a posting about my solution.I was able to install it with no issues and it seems to fit perfectly. The part number of the kit I used is:

Monroe SA1932


The correct way to mount this is on the inside of the drivers side frame rail using the lower rear bolt holding the steering gearbox in place. This is shown in the first photo.

You then mount the stabilizer to the bracket as shown.

The plate and u bolt bracket that gets mounted to the center link is mounted by first turning the steering wheel all the way to the left, then compressing the stabilizer all the way in, with it installed on the L-Bracket, then pulling it out about 1/8th of an inch. The bolt for the center link mounted side of the stabilizer is in the correct position, so simply mount up the plate and u bolt bracket where the stabilizer is, and you should be good to go. Enjoy! Hope this helps.

Yeah, I've seen that you've mentioned the welded brackets using the Monroe stabilizers on the TRE's. I thought I'd post this to let people know that there is a full kit that works w/o having to do any welding. No way you could run duals, but in my case, I think one will be plenty.

The purpose of a steering stabilizer is to tame the action of trucks and SUVs with oversized tires. ... But, a steering stabilizer ends the common vibration problem that larger tires can cause, smoothing out your ride.
The steering stabilizer's primary function is to dampen or stabilize the side to side movement of the wheels in much the same way shock absorbers limiting excessive suspension movement & oscillation. Steering stabilizers are a necessary component because it helps to absorb bump-steer and flighty steering issues.

Hit it on the head. I'm hoping it will help control the "sail-boat" effect I tend to feel on the highway with the van. Less-sway. In other words, tighten up the ole recirculating ball steering system.

Glad it helped. If you have any questions during install, i'll help as much as i can. I sent you a PM regarding your coil spacers for the lift up front on your G10. Have those worked out well for you? Im a little apprehensive about using them but if you have had good luck with it, I'd like to see how they work. I need just a little bit more lift up front for 31" tires. Thanks man.
