Update on my update. I apparently didn't let the jeep sit long enough before checking the oil. It's over filled.
I checked it again this morning and it's up to the cable on the dipstick. Do not use Columbia Chrysler Dodge jeep.
I will drain some out today and never use them again.

Try Franklin Jeep, they did mine and knew about the 5 quarts only. Ask for Brandy, she is the only service advisor I use. She cares about he customers.

I can say that my dealer at ray laethem here in Michigan did a solid job. Part was on right and very friendly throughout the whole process. I feel it helped my steering to not wander like crazy before. For now I am excited to drive it again. I feel confident again to take a road trip with the family up north.
Nice! Where are they located? I’m out in Brighton and need to find a dealer who does this fix correctly.

Ugggh...after reading this went and checked mine (which was installed last Friday) and see that it is indeed backwards...not looking forward to going back anytime soon...in the meantime, wondering how much of a problem this really is.

With some dealers saying it doesn't matter...I'd ask why there is a sticker on there then. Can it be flipped so that sticker is on the bottom...meaning that it now points right direction...that to me would mean no difference at all.

Confused...

Tracking...I just read through entire thread and see .pdf about why correct instal is important...also that part may be damaged if put in wrong...more concerned about that at this point. Not sure if I take it in and let them turn it, or make them replace since I've put miles on it now.

Looks like mine was installed correctly? So far on the drive back, steering did feel more sturdy, a bit more stiff. Hopefully the dead wobble at 70 mph is also fixed but haven’t taken the highway yet.

Just returned from having completed on mine and wobble is gone. This is first V41 replacement. -AC was replaced with -AD and wobble thousands of miles ago and wobble had returned. Hope this one lasts. Dealer did install correctly!!

Just had my recall work completed today. I will say that my steering has improved and feels a bit stiffer. My Jeep JL Sport S has ~27,000 miles on the first stabilizer. Over the last few weeks I noticed a wobble... not a full on death wobble, but more of a sustained shimmy when hitting a bump at 70~ mph.

The steering stabilizer replacement definitely fixed that issue for me! BUT, I watched the following video and also noticed that my drag link had some play in it, probably ~1mm or so, and it could be felt in the pitman arm connection.

The video:
After watching this, I made a little mental list of points to mention to my service rep at the dealership. They agreed with me that the drag link SHOULD NOT have play in it and went ahead and ordered me a new one to install.

Although my steering feels more stiff, there is still a tiny amount of dead space in the wheel at dead center. Not that I ever really thought about this as an issue, but curious to see how replacing the drag link will affect the overall steering.

I’ll keep you posted after drag link install!

Most of the dealers are putting them on wrong, as an update to V41 ( version 2 ), it emphatically says in red to put the bulge on the intake end facing the bottom, and by doing this you also satisfy the directional problem of the little Mopar sticker which then makes it pointing to the front of vehicle which is correct. Many have suggested the shock must be turned the other way , dust cover end attached to tie rod end , but that is NOT nessessary. Now damn if i can figure out why the bulge on the cylinder end must be facing the bottom , but FCA thought it important enought to issue a version 2 of V41, and get rather " bitchy" as to it's new installation change ( I.E. bulge downward). I have fizzle farted around for two hours trying to figure this out, but shy of calling manufacturer, I'll just redo mine and re-install as per specs......BTW , I have a PDF copy of updated V41, if anybody wants it, and no this is ONLY a band aid , at best as aiding to DW, there is a whole set of dynamics perpetrating that cluster...I would suggest if your Jeep has all the proper, tightend , operative, not worn out equipment, including proper set up and equipment for lifted jeeps, along with tires being balanced and aligned properly your DW will go away....but this ain't gonna do it folks. The SS 's they are putting on are Mopar part # 580AE, which APPEAR to be a little stiffer, to lull you into that no DW trance.....

Yes it was , if labels are on bottom and pointing correctly,to vehicle "FRONT", then the intake " bulge" at the end is facing downward, I've seen very few properly installed including mine, but why the bulge must be downward is driving me crazy....
