should I get a steering stabilizer?
I recently put the IRO 3'' kit and 265 bighorns on my wj with a little over 85,000 miles on it. It is perfectly aligned and there is no shakeing at any time. Since its lifted, bigger tires, should I be worried about death wobble in the future and would it be a good idea to get a new steering stabilizer? I know my stock shocks were trash when I got done with them but how do you know when the ss is worn out?
A SS isn't just to keep your Jeep from getting DW. It also reduces bumpsteer. You will probably find that when offroad, you will have more bump steer than you did because of the bigger, heavier tires. If you are fine with how it is now though then don't waste your money. But a HD SS is a nice thing to have.
You should post a couple more pictures now that the new tires are on.

I am having the same problem. After getting my bigger tires put on I have A LOT more bumpsteer. Would getting a steering stabilizer fix this? If not what should I look for to try and diagnose the problem??
