thank you Gents, what I was hoping to hear?? LOLI thought I'd read on here that the OEM steering stabilizer manufacturer was Kayaba/KYB. I bought a KYB KS1008 from Partsouq for $52.34 last year. Looks and works exactly like the (presumably) factory one I took off.
It's still the same price. They also have 45700-60051 for $162.04:
