Irongrave A stabilizer will only mask death wobble it can not prevent it. if you have death wobble something is wrong in your steering or suspension.

rgroesbeck1 I replaced mine with an OME from Quadratec. Nothing difficult to it. I loosened the nut on the tie rod end and whacked it a couple times with a hammer and it popped out (it is pressed in). Took less than 30 minutes total. Works great. I would not run without it, as you will likely experience the "death wobble" especially if you have oversize tires.

Irongrave remove it and try driving without it. Its not really needed just makes it a little smoother on the road. I personally like the steering feel with out a stabilizer but that's just me.

Pink_Percy Monroe SC2928. It's a direct replacement. Any auto store has them.

CMA_Rider If I'm not mistaken, there should only be 2 bolts holding it on. It should take less than 10min to replace.

You can get a new one from your local autoparts store or online Quadratec, 4wd, 4wheelparts. I dont think theres much of a difference in the variety and theres no need for a dual stabilizer setup.

Any cheapo stabilizer from auto zone will work. I got a Monroe one from there for $27 bucks and its fine. Changing it is simple. You can leave the pressed bolt in place, just undo the top nut and washer and switch out the shock and your done. There's no need to replace the bolt if you go that route.
