Rancho RS5000 steering stabilizers reduce steering shimmy, improve tire control, and give you more control over your vehicle if a tire should blow out. The single stabilizers protect front-end suspensions, and are used with tires up to 35 in. tall. Dual stabilizers are for off-roaders with tires 35 in. and taller.

Increase vehicle control under all driving conditions by reducing steering shimmy and driver fatigue
Improve tire wear and provide better control in blowout conditions
Single stabilizers help protect front-end suspension components, and are designed for use with tires up to 35" tall
Applications include 4WD, 2WD, trucks, sport utility vehicles, vans, motorhomes, and semi trucks/tractors (class 7 and 8)
Dual setups are designed for the aggressive off-roader with large oversized tires

Commonly known as "The 5th Shock", a Rancho steering stabilizer is a must for vehicles with oversized tires. Featuring RS5000 construction and available in single or dual configurations, Rancho steering stabilizers improve driver control, and minimize uncomfortable road input.
Rancho Steering stabilizer are shock absorbers which are specially engineered to operate horizontal. Acting as a horizontal shock absorber, steering stabilizers reduce vibrations that travel thought the steering system to the driver. The result can be increased control, improved safety and reduced driver fatigue. Simply put, steering stabilizers are installed between the main movable component of the vehicle steering system and its frame.

Price: $45.00
Pros: Great reaction feel and counteracts the large bumps in the road. Better than OE in my opinion
Cons: product is fine but the nut holding it to the suspension had to be torched off with a plama cutter..
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Went through 2 moog SS's in 2 years. This unit has been much better
installed myself. would have taken 15 minutes if OE bolt had come off with pb-blaster... had to torch it off
has 35000 on it so far and still looks and works like new

Pros: Larger than stock, comes with boot, great warranty
Cons: Axle side bushing was larger than the mount
Recommended? Yes

Comments: So far this has worked much better than stock, or my old ProComp ES2000. I had to pry the axle side housing out a bit so that the shock end would fit.

Price: $57.00
Pros: Easy install Dust boot
Cons: A little pricey
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The steering stabilizer was an easy install, and I think I'll get a lot of use out of it as a "bump steer" eliminator. Overall, the out of the package to install time was about 25 minutes. Good product overall. I would recommend that you shop a little and get a better price. I went out to the local parts store during a lift install and paid a little too much, but that's what you get for convenience.

Happy trails.

Pros: made the steering stiffer
Cons: NA

Comments: I can only compare to the rough country that was on the Jeep when I bought it. The stabilizer has a nice look as well as made the steering stiffer. I like the stiffer steering

Pros: looks great, feels great, installs easily
Cons: none yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: My old stabilizer was absolutely shot. When i replaced it with the rancho, there was an incredibly major difference in the steering and handling. i hear there are better brands out there, but for the money, and results, this was a great buy.

Price: $50.00
Pros: Easy install Good performance
Cons: Boot collapses when extended due to vacuum ( aesthetic issue only)
Recommended? Yes

Comments: No problem with performance, but my boot is always collapsed which looks a bit goofy. When compressed, all air under the boot is pressed out. When the shock extends (even with wheels facing straight forward), no air can seep back in, thus creating a vacuum which collapses the boot. I guess the tight seal is a good thing, though, as it prevents intrusion of water and debris.

Price: $60.00
Pros: Works the way it should, for a while
Cons: Completely worthless after 3 years. Oil is leaking out of it and it does nothing for the steering anymore.
Recommended? No

Comments: This SS (59.99$ from currie website) came with my currie HD steering upgrade, and once I installed it things worked well for about a year. After a year, the paint on the SS had begun chipping and cracking. After two years, the SS started slowly leaking oil out of the shaft end, covering the entire SS with an unattractive coating of muddy slime. After three years, the SS is completely worthless and needs to be replaced. I am unaware of what the life span of these units SHOULD be, but be advised: mine lasted about two years while still functioning properly. My reccomendation is to buy this part with the expectation that it will need to be replaced at least every three years.

Pros: Stronger Upgrade over Stock
Cons: none really seen yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Much bigger than the stock stabilizer. compared to the stock one, much stronger. It eats up the bumps in the roads to the point where it is hardly felt at the steering wheel. Worth it.

Price: $50.00
Pros: Very good strength. Has more to it than the stock.
Cons: If there are any I have not found them yet. I will update if there are any.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought the Rancho RS 5000 today and put it on in about 20 minutes. I used a pitman arm puller to remove the old shock. That will save you a few hours. The price is good for the work that it will do. Most places that I have seen sell this shock for about the same price.
I did not use the boot, just the sticker. It is very easy to install and would recommend this to anyone trying to get a little experience on working with the Jeep.

Pros: IN Stock, Cheap, Life time guarantee, everyone said its good
Cons: non yet, easy to install with the proper tools, i like the color and boot. NO MORE DEATH WOBBLE!!
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I did a little reseach on this form and decided to get it, I work at an auto parts store so i get parts at cost. with a puller i did the job in 15 minutes and it works great, the stock one is a pile of poop. If your in San Diego or Joshua Tree look me up!!
