How the heck do you wear out a steering stabilizer, technically you should be able to run without one, it really just kinda helps. Now my factory one leaked all over my front skid on the XJ and pretty much just rusted out on both TJ's. I just picked up a couple of monroes from the parts store for the TJ's. The XJ got a Rancho and that one I had done, could not get that tapered bolt out of the XJ to save my life. If you are wearing them out I would look and try to see why. Up here in the NE it's that nasty road stuff they use in the winter.
