IRO 3 inch lift

I am about to order the IRO 3 inch lift for my 02 overland and had a few questions. I've done some searching and seen that some people say they got a steering stabilizer and then there are some who didn't even mention anything about a steering stabilizer. I'm going to get the basic lift (hydro shocks) since this will mainly be a daily driver and not so much intense trail riding. With that said, will just getting the springs, shocks, track bar, and sway bar links be enough? I already have 265/70R17 BF Goodrich all-terrains put on also.

Yes it will be enough to work. The kit is complete, but it is highly suggested to upgrade your SS while you are at it. Depending on what your budget is, I would also recommend looking into getting new spring isolators ($100 for the complete set) possibly a small spacer for it to sit level (depending on what drive shaft you have), and longer front end links for the front sway bar to go back to its original orientation ($40 zone links).....But yes you can just install the kit as is and will be fine. These are just suggestions. I did all of these things when I put my IRO kit on.

What steering stabilizer did you use?

I'm using a rough country one right now, I put it on about a year ago when I did my BB lift...I am getting some slight death wobble though between 45-55, and it is on my list to inspect so I can't say it was the best option yet. I would look around at what others are running.

Yes get a SS. I am not "100%" happy with my Moog but it is, at the moment, still doing it's job.
