I just installed my OME steering damper stabilizer. Dang what a pain! I had all the right tools, soaked it all day long with PB Blaster, still it took 2 hours to get it off, and the OME went on in 5 minutes.
To my Point....My stabilizer came with US standard type bolts! This doesn't seem right since all my shocks came with metric. Is this normal? Also, the rubbers were black but painted yellow, not yellow like my shocks. Is that normal?

The OME stabilizer I just got for my 40 is the same way. I'm guessing the paint will probably flake off once the rubber starts to flex some.

Yeah the paint started flaking in my hand, and especially when I tightened the bolt up.
I had same problem :mad: but then i scrapped 'em off before install it :D nice and clean (original black rubber) took about 45mins to do both side.

besides the painted bushings, what about the nuts? were they metric or standard like mine?
A 19MM wrench fits the nut pretty well. I don't have any way to know whether the threads are std or metric though.
