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.

Comments: I just finished installing the RS5000 about an hour ago. The first thing I noticed is it tightened my steering a little bit. I also noticed that when I had my wheels turned all the way and accelerated slowly, the wheels went back a bit slower.

I took my Jeep for a ride on the highway which needs an alignment, but even needing an alignment, it kept the wheels on track where I wanted them to go.

Taking off the old OEM Stabilizer was the hardest part, the left bolt and screw was on there pretty well, I ended up using 2 ratchets, one propped up on my spring, the other I turned myself.

After the OEM Stabilizer was out, it took me a minute to figure out how to install it, from ther it just fit right in no problems at all. I did need to purchase a new bolt and nut for the left side since they don't provide you with a new one.
