ShakaZulu8402 Steering stabilizer won't fix your death wobble. Could lessen it for a minute, but won't actually fix it.

JeepandMud I have the ProComp and though I wasn't too fond of their products (meaning their suspension lift from another jeeper), I love it. It hasn't been giving me ay problems *knock on wood of course*

Jerry Bransford As Cubalz said, a steering stabilizer is never (!) the cure for Death Wobble. Think of installing a steering stabilizer to try to cure DW as placing a band-aid on a skin cancer... it may mask/hide the symptoms but it's not curing the true root problem.

Find the real source of your DW... like an imperfectly balanced tire, loose track bar, etc. and DW is normally a combination of a couple things like those two items just mentioned.

jgorm A steering stabilizer is a critical component of the steering. Having a worn out stabilizer is like having worn out shocks and will perpetuate the wear of all the steering components.

cubalz Unfortunately all a steering stabilizer will do is "band aid" the real issue. Something is causing the DW: worn out suspension components, tires need balanced, etc

Kempo I have a BDS steering stabilizer on my 3" lift and i think it works well. Also life time warranty.
