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: $53.00
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.

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: Price
Cons: No cons so far.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Just installed this on my WJ and I can feel the difference already. In all fairness, I think the OEM stabilizer was pretty shot, so it's hard to really compare. But, I'm quite satisfied.

Pros: Simple install, uses factory mounts.
Cons: Only cosmetic - pictured in white, arrived in silver.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Bolts right on in place of the factory. Directions could exist, that'd be nice, but its not exactly hard (and there are writeups on the net)

Pros: High Quality. Stronger than Stock. Looks Great!
Cons: NONE
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I just installed the Rancho Steering Stabilizer on my 2005 TJ Unlimited. Difference is night and day. I had 100,000kms on my
original steering stabilizer and it was completely shot. I was impressed with the quality of it and the larger diameter i am
sure makes it stronger and last longer. For anyone who has never changed this part on an older Jeep, i highly recommend it.
My Wife and I noticed the steering pulling with pot holes and you would feel lots of vibration and pulling in the steering wheel.
It would get tiring on bad roads trying to fight the steering. This makes the truck manageable and smoother. The jeep now
handles like a different vehicle. I highly recommend this part for any Jeeps with some mileage!
