Steering Stabilizer

wanted to see what brand you guys are running with 35 inch tires

I also have the rugged ridge HD steering

I'm not running one with 33's. If your steering is all keyed in, you shouldn't need one. They only hide problems.

As long as the stock one is still providing damping effect in both directions, and not leaking, I wouldn't waste any $$$ on an "upgrade" stabilizer.

If it isn't working, or it's leaking, I would buy the least expensive OEM style, or just see how it feels without it.

As stated previously, a steering system in good working order shouldn't need one.

I just bought that recently too. I was concerned about quality going with a cheaper company but so far im happy.Im running it without the stabilizer even though I purchased one due to a fitment issue. Ill get into detail if your interested. I also bought the Rugged Ridge Winch mount plate and same deal. Seems to be of the same quality as other companys I have seen.

Spend your money elsewhere if the one you have is working.
If your steering is set up properly with no worn parts there is no real need for the damper in the first place.
It is a band-aid fix.

I would change that Dana 35 out before I fooled with a Steering Stabilizer .

It will not last long running a 350 chevy and 35 inch tires.

None with my 35's. Stabilizer is a band-aid to hide other problems.
