Steering Stablilizer Opinions

Who makes a good one? Seems like every company that makes a lift kit makes one.

I've also heard that the dual stabilizer setups are a bad idea. Is that true? And if so, why?

Thanks

i am looking for one aswell, leaning towards RC Steering Stabilizer, from what i have heard about duals are
if you need 2, then check your linkage make sure nothing is loose or worn out, i just need to replace the OEM one

I got a unit from Iron Rock Offroad. Added the protective bellows too. Been good for 3 years. Beefier looking than the OEM unit but probably the same performance.

Double steering stabilizer is not needed, besides the fact that it will increase the load on your power steering pump. So I suggest to get only one SS. For brands, am using MOOG Trail Boss from Kolak and it works fine. Another options can be Zone Offroad or IRO

Can you post a picture of these "protective bellows" you speak of?

I read some reviews on Amazon about the bolts that come with the moog steering stabilizers, do they come with the right hardware (too short)? What's the difference between super trail boss and the trail boss?

Same here, the bolt is ALMOST short but they provide a nylon lock washer so it's all good.

I'm running a pair of Kevin's - installed prior to having Claytons (and a correct caster angle). Probably only need one now...

Mine came with the wrong hardware, but that was a couple years ago. I installed one on another jeep a few weeks ago and it came with the right hardware. I'm guessing they updated the kit since more people seem to say it comes with the right stuff lately.

I also put the Moog trail boss on recently. The bolt for the clamp on the tie rod sleeve was just slightly too short. The nut would only go on one or two threads. This was on the slightly beefier Moog tie rod tube, would probably have been exactly right on the thinner stock tie rod. Quick trip to home depot for a longer bolt and it was all good. Feels much better than the old original steering stabilizer.

So if i'm driving a stock height wj I would assume I would just get the regular trail boss not the super trail boss...I don't go off roading too much. I'm starting to get a little wander in my steering and the stabilizer on there is still original.
