Recommendations for Steering Stabilizer

I need to replace my steering stabilizer, and was wondering if anyone has any suggestions?

I have a 2000 TJ sahara, with 3.5" RE lift and 33" duratracs.

How much can it hurt....

I got the Rancho on mine and don't have any Complaints.

Was a Direct Replacement for the Stock one.

OME or the Fox one if you got that kinda cash. I'm budget minded and got a RC and no wobbles or wiggles for me!

It's a 50/50 valved shock, whether it's a Monroe or a fox, it's pretty close to the same thing.
Violence may not be the answer but it sure cuts down on the stupid questions

Just installed a Zone SS about a month and a half ago. No complaints - install was easy, drives nice, great customer service from Allen at AOR. Costs a little more due to the shipping, but it's a much beefier part than stock.

I have a Rancho SS as well, and I've already had it replaced once under warranty. The new Teraflex SS claims to help reduce front-end parts wear.

Most are pretty much the same as DevilDogDoc says, a hydraulic shock that is valved 50:50 so it resists equally in both directions. The difference in some SS kits is that not all include the tapered stud required to secure the SS to the drag link. The old tapered stud is a permanent part of the factory SS so you need a new replacement SS with a new SS. Just make sure it is in any kit that you buy.
When you have a choice, buy American.

get the cheapest possible thing you can find that is a "Direct Replacement" for stock. Theres no reason to look further than your local auto parts store...Monroe is a good brand.
