TWO Questions: Stabilizers and Camber Adjust on AWD

Hey folks, you guys have helped me a ton with my build thus far, and I would love your input on the following two topics:

1. Steering Stabilizer: I want one, plain and simple. Had them on my jeep, truck etc. Love the feel of having one. I know this should be the LAST thing that is thought of, not until alignment and all components are inspected. Aware of that and I WILL address that, BUT..... I would like to know, who makes a kit, or is there a DIY way of installing a kit on a 1997 Safari AWD? (I actually have 1 or 2 stabilizers laying around, from my Jeep days, BUT I have no idea who I would go about installing one on a vehicle that has a crossmember rather than a Solid front axle)

Any tips? I heard rancho makes a kit with the mounting hardware? (googling yielded no kit or part number)

2. Adjusting Camber on AWD. This is the big one: How does one go about adjusting the Camber on a 97 Safari AWD? I keep finding how to do it on a RWD, and the only thing I found that seems hopeful is this link, but not sure if it is correct:


Could anyone maybe confirm if that is correct? Or is there a different method?

Again, Appreciate any help way in advance.

PS I am aware someone will come here and say "you don't need a stabilizer"... I know. I didn't NEED a lift either...but I wanted one.... ;) :LOL:
