This seems bad to me because the damper and mounting is going to take the full force of a crash rather than the steering stops. There's a tiny loss of turning radius but I don't care much about that.

Anyone else have this same setup?

Should I:
- do nothing and ride it
- extend the steering stops
- get a new damper
- ???
Don't get rid of the old scotts damper. I have one that was made in 99. It is suggested that its serviced every 3 to 4 years. last week I sent mine in. It was suggested that I get a new valve because of all the wear on it. When I get it back it works good as new every time. the service only cost $35-55.
