Single or Double steering stabilizer

Just installed my 3" zone SL and 1.25" BL and now im rockin 33s. Im having a little bump steer and a much looser feel to my steering in general. Any advice on what steering stabilizer to pick up BDS, Zone, etc... and if I should get the single or double. I always like to do it right and do it once but I dont want overkill either.... Thanks guys

A single is all that you need. Anything more is overkill.

Have you had it aligned since you lifted it? Steering stabilizers do not cure steering issues. You should not need to have one installed for proper steering, it will only mask the underlying issue.

Not only are dual stabilizers not necessary, you shouldn't run more than one because the added resistance from the second stabilizer forces the power steering system to have to work harder. That can mean the difference in your PS fluid overheating and boiling out on a tough trail/hot day or not.
