Steering stabilizer

So I have a skyjacker stabilizer right now and I was wondering what a good stabilizer would be?

They are all generally the same, grab the cheapest from the local parts store.

Steering stabilizers (more accurately called steering dampers) are nothing special, they're simply most commonly a standard hydraulic shock valved 50:50. Pretty much any brand is fine, none will give you that 'ah what a difference' feeling like new shocks at all four corners can do.

Get one in a kit made for a TJ, not all "cheapest" generic stabilzers include the tapered stud required to mount it on the driver's side. Removing the OE stabilizer removes that stud so a replacement is needed. Looks like this...
