I run a yj with 4 in lift and 35 in tires, and im looking to get a steering stabilizer. I want to git rid of the shakey steerig wheel. However i have no clue about them, do I just need one. is it an easy bolt on, anyone have info on a good brand, and instalation tips?
Installation is as easy as replacing a shock, but you don't even have to remove a tire to get access. A lot of people recommend Bilstein shocks for quality. I have the RC stabalizer that was part of my lift kit. I am sure someone else will also give some input.
Replacing it is just 2 bolts anybody can do it! I was talking to my Rough Country rep. the other day about them with tires up to 35" he recommends just there standard heavy duty unit. With larger tires he said to move up to there new 2.2 stabilizer.

I got the one from NAPA for my 87 YJ and it seems to work fine ,I think it was around forty dollars. You may need some sort of puller (I did) to remove the bolt from the tie rod something like a pittman arm puller or ball joint seperater and you need a torque wrench to put it all back with
I'm ficing to do one of these myself. Does anyone have pictures? I found over at Jeepforum pictures of the side bolted to the frame, but does anyone have pictures of the drag link side? Mine does not have one installed already, so it's not a matter of just pulling off the old one and bolting on a new one I'm afraid.
I ordered one up in hopes of helping a little with the sloppy steering. I got the Rancho brand to match the rest of my lift. From what I have gathered with a tie rod puller and some PB blaster to loosen the bolts you can knock this mod out in 30 mins or so. It is essentially just another shock, but the length to which is compresses and extends is a big part of it. Plus a regular shock/strut has different ways of attachment then the steering stabilizer does, so I imagine it would be rather difficult to get a regular shock to work in this scenario.
