Steering stabilizer

For my '93 ZJ (NOT lifted), Rancho, skyjacker or ORV?. I called autoanithing.com and they said ORV is made specifically for jeeps. I would like to put two, one on each side, any advise on that please?

Don't put two on. No real difference in stabilizers, I think Autozone sells the Moog TrailBoss which people seem to like.

I've always used Rancho but any name brand is basically the same.

The moog super trail boss is amazing and very cost effective. I run out in sugar sand with many changes by way of ruts and it was a night and day differance from oe to moog.good bang for your buck (i got it for 55 shipped on ebay) and it is thicker than most

Autozone........I got the front coil springs ("variable rate") and the control arms from them. Since I replaced those, my ZJ hasn't been the same. I could feel it from day one. At least the vibration doing 60 straight and flat is gone, since I went back to stock wheels and all new tires but if I hit a bump even at 50/55,,,,,is still there and baddddd

Then something else is wrong and a stabilizer is at best going to mask it some. Check your alignment, tie rods, and track bar. Is it just vibration or full on death wobble?

Full death wobble, the front end goes crazy out of control if I hit a bump at 50/55. Now, all, absolutely any part that you can think of, was replaced in the front suspension/steering systems. And 4 NEW tires last week on stock wheels, balanced and all at BJ's. Improved; before, I couldn't even do 55 in a flat/straight highway. I'm spending a fortune and the worse is that I can't determine the damn problem, excuse the language, but I drive with the kids in the car!!!

Check the track bar. It's either loose, bad bushings or the mount at the axle is wallowed out. Steering stabilizer will do nothing for death wobble and can't cause it.

Is it torqued properly? Is the mounting hole ovaled out?

OK.Deep breath. Let me explain this. The new control arms look weaker, thinner metal, softer rubber. The new track bar also. The bushing looks softer and the ball joint in it can be moved around with no much effort.(When it was NEW): I got all the parts from autozone (Duralast) brand. I'm thinking/researching,,,maybe I can get the arms and coil springs from a newer Wrangler/Rubicon from a junk yard, provided they are the same type/size and return all that to autozone. I have the strong feeling that these "duralast" parts made some where in the jungle are to blame.
