Any SS will work. "Is not cutting it" are you having issues you're trying to mask ?

^^ if you're getting death wobble or experiencing bump steer, the stabilizer really isn't the issue. now, yeah - your stabilizer shouldn't leak... but it sounds like you have something else is going on here too...

Just some shake in the wheel, it goes away when the dampner is replaced, tires are a bit worn but all 5 are being replaced next week and obviously a front and rear alignment, balljoints end links etc are all good and I'm meticulous when it comes to maintenance, but I'm also open to listening to suggestions if somebody has opinions on other causes for wheel shake, by the way it only shakes between 40-50 mph

how are your tires wearing, evenly? how much play do you have in your tie-rod ends on the drag link and the tie-rod. are you still running the stock bolts in your track bar and control arms?

sounds like it could be a fish-eyed bolt hole at your frame track bar mount. even if it's tight... i would start by replacing your stock bolts, or this is just going to continue.

They are worn evenly as I rotate every 3000 but I'll look into your suggestions for sure

okay, how about tire pressure? if everything with the tires checks out okay - i'd almost be willing to bet it's your track bar (the bolts for your track bar, or the ends are too worn).

As tire pressure goes I run a little more than stock, larger tires heavier rims and I like the rougher ride , what pressure would you recommend

for your 315/75s, i would run somewhere between 32 and 35. as long as the tire is wearing even and isn't cupped... that's where i ran my GY DTs (same size).

i'm running my 37s at 33 psi.... they seem to wear best there. like you.. it's a little harder (i'm not a fan of a mushy tire, except on the trail), and i tend to get better drive-ability on the highway...

Replace your track bar and the bolts (or at least the bolts). If the a new stabalizer "fixes" the problem and then gives out, then you're asking the stabalizer to compensate for a track bar that isn't doing it's job properly. I'll bet your track bar has a ton of slop.

This was my problem, new bolts fixed it for a few weeks. Some welding fixed it for good.

Running the Rancho 7000. High pressure gas does push the jeep to the right but one hell of a little stabilizer.
