When I called them on it, the tech tried to tell me the sticker was on wrong.
Taking it back first thing Friday to have it corrected.

Can this thing be damaged if installed incorrectly?

Some people have said that the sticker is wrong on some of them. They said to just make sure the buldge is on the bottom. That's the main thing to look for.

Yes it stays in installation if installed incorrectly and vehicle driven then a “new” unit must installed with new bolts. I had V41 done last Friday and requested that I observe and printed out the instructions and gave to mechanic Done correctly I was not going take chance

Mine had a slight wobble after hitting a bump at highway speed The dealer put in a new superseded part number damper and was ok for about a week The wobble came back Then I opened up a star case and they reimbursed me to put in a fox stabilizer and it has been great since I got the recall notice last week and there is no way I am going to put in another mopar stabilizer The fox one works great and I know it was put in correctly because I put it in myself
