dual steering stabilizer kit

I just bought a dual steering stabilizer from skyJacker kit for my 07 jk. Was not sure how difficult it will be to install or what will need to be removed. Any body have answers. Thanks

Why do you need a dual steering stabilizer?

Just curious...

Dual SS are absolutely not neccessary. Sorry they took your money.

Hopefully you are not trying to mask a steering issue. Nevertheless, they are useless.

Dual stabilizers though? I wonder what the benefits really would be?

Dual stabilizers/HD steering box/HD Pitman/HD Drag link are all kinda required for a COMPETITION JEEP/W IROC 40/42" TIRES/BEADLOCKS--

Other than that a normal jeep/w just off-road capabilities, will not benefit from the "Dual Stabilizer" and will probably ruin the stock steering box/w--NO WARRANTY !

Other than that--how's your day going ??

None. As Jimbo said, might even work the other way and mess some s*** up.

I know Eddie over at Project-JK stuck a PSC Ram Assist in his new 2012. Any advantage of that?

I got the dual since the single stock was blown. I figured I would up grade to the dual because I would get the death wobble every time I hit a bump. Got the dual installed it makes a big difference

A steering stabilizer will only mask Death Wobble, which you don't have...You cannot drive with true DW. The only way to stop true DW is to park your Jeep and call a tow truck. Anything less is NOT Death Wobble, which is almost always caused by an improperly installed, or just plain wallowed out, trackbar.

If you've got jumping, shaking, shimmy problems with your Jeep, it could be any # of things, almost none of which have anything to do with your steering stabilizer.

Its not so much a death wobble the steering wheel would shake back and forth whenever I would hit pot holes or man hole covers. My steering was fine until the stock steering stabilizer blew out and started leaking I don't have any of those problems now that I have the dual

Yes. In the post directly above your mention of bump steer, the OP was describing the steering wheel shaking back and forth after hitting potholes or manhole covers.

Exactly! That is bump steer and NOT DW. Even he admitted that it was not DW, but something else. I was letting him know what that "something else" was called.

Daggo is correct in his bump steer diagnosis. A SS also just masks that as well. OP dual SS is not an upgrade instead a bandaid. Get your suspension fixed. I could probably pull my stock stabilizer and drive just fine. Sorry bro but looks like you drank the dual steering stabilizer kool aid.

Certainly sounds like bump steer to me.

OP, check several things: your drag link and front tb need to be parallel to each other. If they're not, that's likely the cause of your problems. Do you have an aftermarket tb, and did it come with a new mounting bracket?

Also, make sure your tb mounting holes aren't wallowed out (have you done the Polyperformance bolt replacement?).

Make sure all bolts are torqued properly.

Have your caster checked, and do an inspection of your ball joints.

One (or all) of those is almost surely the problem.
