The Monro-Magnum steering stabilizer stops vibration before it gets to the driver. It is ideally suited for trucks, vans, and 4-wheel drive vehicles.
Monro-Magnum steering stabilizers increase control under all driving conditions by reducing steering shimmy and driver fatigue. Additionally, they can reduce tire wear and protect front-end components from premature wear.
Part Number: SC2928
(This product is the same as NAPA Item#: NS SC2928)
Price: $23.00 Pros: It dampens steering, it's low in cost and as reliable as anyother Tenneco (Rancho) product. Cons: It didn't come with a boot, factory paint job was half @$$3D. Recommended? Yes
Comments: I'd suggest hitting this with a touch up job minimally. Mine was dropped shipped from the factory, with bare metal exposed near the weld where the shock eye meets the body. Otherwise paint appeared fine, even if I didn't touch it up, I'd expect to replace it before the body were to rust through.. I had to pick up a shock bot from the local parts store that brought my total to ~$28, at least I got my choice of color.
Price: $37.00 Pros: works. better control (didnt have one on the WJ before) Cons: no boot :( Recommended? Yes
Comments: was gonna wait for when i was gonna order my RC lift but i figured i need it since if i go through any mud it will throw off y balance anc cause my DW. and steering and control is Alot Better not loose
Price: $30.00 Pros: Cheap, as good as some of the more expensive ones, available at Advance Auto or Napa, easy to install Cons: None... Recommended? Yes
Comments: After getting my steering box replaced, I figured it wouldn't hurt to replace the stock steering stabilizer as well. I got the Monroe SC2928 at Advance Auto for around $30 after reading many recommendations here. It was said to be much better than stock.
I have never done any steering work, but with a pitman arm puller I was able to replace the stabilizer without any issues.
The difference is definitely noticeable. When I removed my stock stabilizer, I noticed that with only 39k miles on it, the piston had little to no resistance. The Monroe was much stiffer. My TJ seems to wander less and feels easier to control.
