Removed my 14 month old, spring loaded steering damper yesterday to inspect. My suspicions that it had passed on to another life were correct. The piston moved effortlessly from end to end and it was covered in oil.
It has a 2 year warranty and I've taken it back to my supplier today.
I will look forward to posting on here (hopefully) that 4 Ways (Tough Dog suspension mob) have replaced it without question. If not, .........well, you'll hear about that too!!!!!!!!!
Anybody else had any problems with their RTC damper?

Bazzle on patrol list has 4 dead ones in his shed.. I was going to get one, but then lookin at these, just went with an average everyday damper.

I had one on my old GQ too, but that one was still going okay after about 150,000 klicks when i sold it.

Are you still on holidays Mr Roach? or are you sneaking in on the office computer...hahahaha

You have been on some rough tracks with your truck. No wonder the steering damper passed on. I must look at mine and have the opportunity now whilst out here in the sticks as there is a ramp I can put the truck on

CYA

I put a nonreturn damper on my Triton but doesnt seem to make much difference & I feel it upsets the natural action of the f/end a bit. Without it everything is fine with minimal kickback. Maybe the fat wheels with greater offset increase the need for other gimmicks!

Roachie, another option would be to replace the .42 with a 50. You'd be way out in front then.

Happy New Year Des............I trust you did not over indulge over the festive season?????

Thanks for those words of wisdom............seems like the only things I am able to break on my truck are the bloody after-market thingos that I shell-out big bikkies for in the belief that I am doing myself a favour. I need someone to tell me how damn silly i am; i reckon you'd be just the right bloke for the job (but you may need some assistance from a pest controller too). hahahaha

G'day young Bill. I know what you mean as it is always the add ons that go kaput. I'll tell you how silly you are only if you promise to reciprocate. LOL
