Best Steering Stabalizer?

I want to replace the steering stabalizer on my 2000 Sahara (stock suspension). What would you go with?

First a quick question: Are you currently having any steering problems and that's the reason you want to replace it?

First thing I would do before you buy a new steering stabilzer is to go get an alignment and get the tires rotated and balanced. Then you'll have a pretty clean slate to start with. After you do that then I'd look to replace your old OEM.

Excellent post Scout. Maybe you are bringing sexy back.

Do what he said above and if you feel that you still need more stabilization up in the front end just go to Napa and get a Monroe Stabilizer. They are made by the exact same company that makes Rancho and they are 25 bucks cheaper.

Amazed or amused??


I run the Monroe. Bigger and better than stock, plus its cheaper. You can pic one up at most any auto store its Part number is SC2928


But with a 2000 Jeep I would not think you would need one already.
