Is a steering damper required when running PAS

AFAIK all the coil sprung Land Rovers were fitted with a steering damper, so I guess it would make sense to fit one - they fitted them for a reason. The steering drag link is available with the damper bracketry in place for the Series and is not too dear (£17.95 from Craddocks) and the chassis bracketry shouldnt be too difficult to fab up............

Thanks

I had a damper on but replaced the new fwd crossmember again. I'll put the setup back in. I'm trying to cut corners as this build has been dragging on forever.

PAS without a damper won't kick back over rough ground.

Les.

It seems to me as if the steering box has internal damping. Maybe it is best to leave it on though as they are fitted to defenders.

Probably helps on corrugated roads as we have plenty here. Can only be good to assist with stability?
