You'll be cool with your current stabilizer.
Ok cool thanks man

Yeah luckily I don't have the dreaded death wobble anymore after I had my tires rebalanced. But yeah I wasn't looking to mask the problem I was just looking to absorb the shock from bumps.

jdhallissey Just the cheapest one autozone has or napa. Like 30 bucks for a monroe. I actually don't have a steering stabilizer on right now it broke lol. I have been driving without the stabilizer for a little over 3 weeks with no ill effects.

Steering Stabilizer

Hey everybody, I'm fairly new to the Jeep world and very new to this forum. So I thought that I would start out by asking you guys about steering stabilizers. I just recently put a set of 31x10.50 BF Goodrich All Terrains on my TJ and so far I really like them. However I thought that since my TJ has 70K on it and now it's running bigger tires it's probably a good time to throw on a new steering stabilizer. So if anybody has any suggestions of what would be a good one to get,I would love to know what you think. Thanks
