JEEP LIFE AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS
"Not all those who wander are lost"
There are two things that I will always improve when I have the opportunity, braking ability and steering performance. Falcon Shocks by TeraFlex makes a beefy steering stabilizer that not only looks great, but gives your steering a subtle boost in performance.
So, what does it do? It's actually pretty simple...the Nexus 2.1 EF Stabilizer is built to tighten up the steering, or..."stabilize" the performance a bit. I know, I know that sounds complicated right? Take a look at what your Nexus will do.
• Equal force side-to-side resistance
• Allows for balanced return to center equilibrium
• Inline oil/gas separator prevents cavitation
• Optimized fitment & clearance
• OEM style sealed rod end joint
• 1,000 hour salt spray corrosion resistance on all hardware
• Lucas Oil full synthetic shock oil
• Patent pending design
• 3 year warranty
Ok, ok, so really...does it work? Here's my experience so far...
Recently I went up a size in tires. Nothing to crazy, but going from a 10.5 to a 12.5 with definitely made the tires heavier and I don't forsure, but I assume the added size and weight is what made the steering a little more loose than it was before. (Yes the tires are balanced and yes I did an alignment job post new tires).
Honestly, I've always wanted to try a beefier steering stabilizer anyway and now that TeraFlex makes one, I went for it. Well, guess what folks. It does make a difference, I love the tighter more stabile feel of the ride post Nexus 2.1. It's very subtle, but definitely noticeable and any modification I can do to make my steering Performance a better one...I'm all in!
The Falcon Nexus line starts at just under $250 bucks and the 2.1 is all that is currently available so choosing the one you want will be easy. The install is a breeze too. Took me a whole 20 minutes-ish right there in my driveway with just a couple basic tools. To make it even easier check out the install video above.
