THUREN / KING 2.0 IFP STEERING DAMPER

Striving to produce the ultimate steering damper, working together with KING Shocks for over a year, we came up with a great product for the Dodge Ram platform. This damper utilizes a very fine tuned damping profile, creating the ideal solution for the best control and feel possible! Every brand steering damper we've ever tested only started to function when you impact large hits, and did little to nothing to reduce small chatter and road imperfections felt through the steering wheel. This damper is internally tuned to control every aspect of the driving experience. While steering dampers in the past have been seen as an un-needed component, when it comes to handling and driving safety, this damper completely changes the game. The small shaft design allows us to ship each damper with the required 100psi minimum, needed to control the steering on these very heavy trucks.

  • FITS 2013+ RAM 3500
  • FITS 2014+ RAM 2500
  • FITS 2014+ POWER WAGON
  • FITS VARIOUS 2010+ RAM 4500/5500 platforms. Email picture of your damper before ordering to verify fit.
  • Small shaft high-pressure design.
  • Large COM10 5/8" bore teflon lined bearings.
  • Special loaded-valve piston design which controls even the smallest road imperfections.
  • Machined in house 17-4 stainless bearing misalignment hardware.
  • Easy 15min or less install using all OEM hardware.

Some notes about this product.

High quality steering dampers are a finicky part to design and set up properly. The main issue is being able to charge damper with the required 100psi minimum, without the damper inducing too much steering push to one side. If there is less than 100psi pressure charge, the damper can internally cavitate, causing it to momentarily loose function. Smaller lighter vehicles can use less pressure. The shaft diameter used is directly related to the amount of extra "push" the damper will give. For example a 7/8" diameter shaft damper will give right at 60lbs force push at 100psi. This damper with the 1/2" shaft only pushes with 19lbs of force, and with the extra tight seal head, the actual push at the steering linkage is reduced to almost nothing.

Works Great

Installed on my 2020 Power Wagon. Very easy install, works great and looks good too. After putting 35" tires on you could feel a little bit of vibration/wheel shake. Its all gone now.

Thuren King Damper

Just what I needed- I have a brand new '21 Ram2500 that I just added 285/75/R18 Nitto tires to a stock set up. After the tires were installed, I had some additional steering play and vibration. The Thuren/King damper got the truck back to the stock tire feel, even though the tire diameter is close to 2" larger with a much more aggressive tread. Much more pleased now with the tires- it would have been an expensive reduction in steering feel.

MUCH BETTER

GOT RID OF THAT FRONT WHEEL SHAKE WHEN GOING OVER ROUGH ROADS AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS, THAT SEEMED TO HAVE GOTTEN WORSE WITH CHANGING TO A 35" TIRE. VERY PLEASED.

Ram 2500 King Steering Stabilizer

What a difference. It took less than 10 mins to remove the original and replace with the King shock. Very happy with the quality and function. Money well spent.

Steering performance

I upgrade my factory stabilizer because of a set of 35” tires I installed.
Truck brand new so I never noticed issues but did this as a safety measure to prevent issues in the future.
Easy install, and as always has a very appealing look.
