I put TrueTracs front and rear in my 97. I have the stock springs, HD Bilstein shocks and Bilstein steering damper.
I noticed a slight difference in steering, but nothing to complain about.
Are you sure you have a front Truetrac unit and not a rear one?
The parts are the same but they are put together differently. You can convert one to the other. Also the belville preload washer will bed-in after a while reducing the torque effect. You can easily get full torque transfer performance off road by lightly applying the brakes to load a slipping wheel. For this reason you can even replace the spring washer with a plain one. Then the TrueTrac is not even noticable on-road.....BTDT.
