Just put on Teraflex 2.5" coil spring lift with Fox 2.0 performance shocks. Contemplating Fox steering stabilizer. Will I notice a difference in the ride? Also big difference between Fox stabilizer and Teraflex stabilizer? About a $90 difference.

when installing my lift i wanted to have a direct experience on the effect of each component. I installed aev lift with geo brackets (includes the blinstein 5100) ride was very good. I added the teraflex forged adjustable front track bar and I he. The ride was fantastic and way better than stock. Teraflex steering stabilizer added nothing but i still left it installed. I just have 285/70/17 so no suer large tires and that is maybe why i did not feel much difference of tbe TF stabilizer vs stock, the front track bar was a very notable addition

So you would recommend a track bar upgrade versus stabilizer?

I saw more improvement from doing the track bar with my stock tires. (Waiting for the stockers to wear before upgrading)

Also, the Fox 2.0 SS that I got had a Schrader valve and I was able to take some pressure off as over time it did start to "push". But I also didn't have enough Caster and the steering was very flighty, has been fixed now and honestly don't think it would have needed lesser pressure, this was a suggestion from Fox.

FOX ATS. It's a more expensive but it adjustable and gives a neutral feel. I've had both this and a traditional steering stab, and my ATS is one of the best upgrades I've put on my jeep.

Highly recommend.

I have the AEV 2.5 kit with brackets, Tera flex HD track bar, Rancho steering stabilizer with relocation brackets and 285/70/17 cooper discoverer tires and my jeep drives better than stock in its current condition. I think the Rancho stabilizer is much better than stock.

Love my Fox ATS. Hands down the best one out there. Simple installation, fully adjustable, and a quality product. Buy once, cry once!

I just did a track bar after my 2.5 inch lift. Big improvement. No more wandering going down the road.
assuming money is not a concern, absolutely. Also check the torque of all new components 500 miles after lift install, and then with each tire rotation and you will be pleased.

Said that, the steering stabilizer is so cheap compared to the track bar that OF you are going for wider tires, then the stabilizer will help a bit but as many others said, the track bar is the key component. Watch the teraflex video, nice explanation there, i think any adjustable bar from a reputable vendor will work very well, i can only speak about my experience with the TF one.

Good luck!

I am wondering if I need a steering stabilizer or something else myself. I have a 2015 JKU with the basic Terraflex leveling kit (no springs) and 285/75/17 AT tires. I've been driving my wife's minivan lately so I don't know if I am just comparing my Jeep to her minivan, but it seems like my Jeep is floating in my lane and I am constantly readjusting the steering wheel. It doesn't pull or death wobble, it just feels like I am floating around my lane. Hope that makes sense and I hope someone can steer me in the right direction, no pun intended.

Necro'ing this. Got a ~1.5" lift from swapping in 18/60 springs to my JK (and added Rubi shocks), and the car seems to "float." Would a steering stabilizer be a cheap fix?

FOX is gas charged and may cause a pull (Actually push) of the steering to the left.
TF's is a decent upgrade and will help smoothen out larger bumps.

I can supply an update here. Just installed the Fox 2.0. There is no "may" here. There is a definite pull to the left. I now wrestle this thing down the road with a constant push of the steering wheel in a clockwise direction. Getting kinda irritating to say the least. I really hope this thing loosens up.

Just what where the Fox engineers thinking? I can't really image how this thing made it past QA/QC.

Am I missing something here. Are all of the Fox 2.0 like this?
