Question Steering Stabilizer question

I have a 2004 Jeep Wrangler, 35x12.5x15, 3 inch body lift, automatic with an inline 6. (3.73 gears, Dana 44 rear, Dana 30 front).

I replaced my steering stabilizer about 2 months ago. (The 35's have just been placed on my Jeep like Friday.) I was told when I put the 35's on, I need to replace my Steering Stabilizer or "add another one." I plan on replacing my steering stabilizer with a Teraflex 9550 but I had a question about "adding another one??"

Is that possible and if so, how would I go about doing it or finding a website that shows me how? Never heard of "adding" a second stabilizer but if that'll help, I'll be more than happy to try it..

Thank you so much!!

No need for a second stabilizer. I would start looking into upgrading other steering components such as tie rod and drag link. Most popular upgrade for that is the Currie Currectlync. Then look at trackbar bushings and ball joints. 35 inch tires will wear those out a lot quicker than normal.

Stay with a single steering stabilizer. Dual stabilizers just make the power steering system have to work harder which can cause it to overheat on a tough trail.
