Inspect the rear roll resistor for debris. Clean out as needed.
2. Remove the cross member-to-roll restrictor attachment bolt.
3. Install the service shield, P/N 2M5Z-16102-AB.
4. Install the roll restrictor attachment bolt and tighten to 35 ft.-lbs. for 2000-2007 models; or 52 ft.-lbs. for 2008-2011 models.
