Cool steering play and oil pressure problem

I just bought a 2000 wrangler 5 sp. 6 cyc. there seems to be alot of play in the steering, tires are in good shape, would duel stabliziers help? also my oiloressure gauge is runnung high, is that good or do i need to have it checked out?

No duel stabilizers are not the solution. You really shouldn't need any at all. Check for any loose bolts. Also take a good look at all the ball joints as there is a good chance thats it.

have a buddy jump in your jeep and tell them to turn the wheel back and forth while you inspect the front end components. Pay particular attention for play in the track bar ends, tie rod ends , or even a loose pitman are. Do you feel the body of the jeep move to the side while you turn at a dead stop?
