Guess that's what makes the Howard so good...it's is adustable and I often turn it completely off when driving in town. On the highway, I wouldn't be without it!

Not sure how popular they are nowadays, but certainly Steering stabilizers use to be recommended. I happen to have one that as far as I know, is not made any longer, "Howard Power Center Steering Stabilizer". Presumably one of the better ones ever made. Long story short, it works very well in holding you on the road with little effort. No cross wind problems, no Truck passing issues and minimal steering effort.

As I recall Blue Ox made a similar product and other manufacturers such as Steer Safe had some too.


As related previously, there are plenty of approaches available to correct such an issue...


Thanks for mentioning my ole friend Dee Howard, a true inovator. He knew quite a bit about hydraulic feedback circuits, and aerodynamics. He invented and produced a very successful thrust reverser for jet engines. He had a shop on Rhapsody St in San Antonio (not far from my place). He also had 2 large hangars at San Antonio International. He also designed a couple of stability-enhancing mods for Lear Jets.

So Willie, you actually knew the man? That's pretty cool. The "Howard" stabilizer itself is quite the mechanical marvel. I know that they use to be big in the trucking industry also. My Vogue had this as standard equipment and as I stated, I love it.
