Stay far away from dual stabilizers. #1 they aren't needed until you get up to monster-size tires, think 40"+. #2, they just cause the power steering system to have to work harder which can make it and the power steering fluid overheat.

Pretty much all shock absorber and suspension lift manufacturers sell steering stabilizers, I'd use something besides ProComp. Their shocks tend to rust prematurely due to their paint and chrome not being up to par when compared to most other brands. Performance-wise, most are the same because they are all the same thing.... a hydraulic shock absorber with a 50:50 valving so they are damped the same amount in both directions.

And yes OME sells them too.

about the stabilizer: I took some advice and I saved a bunch of money and bought a Monroe sc2928
I got it at autozone and paid something like $26 for it using an online coupon.
