I live in 15 minutes from Qudratec. I get my stuff the same day or next. They do have good shipping time. Get any stabilizer there isn't really a differance between them all. I have Skyjacker. How do you know you need a stabilizer though is it leaking?

I wore out a stab from NAPA in a little over a month (obviously there was more to the problem - track bar I think, have since replaced it with an adjustable one). I have since replaced it with a "Heavy Duty" Teraflex stab. However, it looks suspiciously similar to the one I got at NAPA, save the mount is a little bigger. Im starting to wonder if I paid $35 for a stab and $15 for the Teraflex sticker on it.

On the bright side I havent had even the slightest symptom of DW since I installed it (problem is I replaced the track bar the same day so I cant be sure I fixed it). I guess I will know if I wear out this stabilizer.

most likely, there's only a handful of actual manufacturers, and hundreds of stickers going on them.

A steering stabilize is nothing more than a hydraulic shock absorber valved 50:50 so it resists equally in both directions. They're all pretty much the same, there are only really a few actual manufacturers of them.

HOWEVER, I would not buy a "generic" kit because unless it was specifically made for a TJ Wrangler, otherwise the odds are that it will not have the required tapered bolt needed to attach it to the drag link. The OE tapered bolt is part of the OE steering stabilizer and it's not reusable, you have to install a new one.
