Steering Damper/Stabalizer

1979 CJ5, looking for recommendations for a steering Damper, I have a 4" lift as most of you know, would I be better with a dual or a single stabalizer?Brands?

A single is plenty unless you are building for show. All the dampener does is soften some of the road shock from jarring bumps such as potholes.

Single is really all you'd need. What are you experiencing that requires a damper?

Some of us with lifted Jeeps don't use them because they are usually masking a symptom of something that needs fixed.

Vibration? Bump steer? Wandering? Read the article (sticky) on Steering, suspension, and driveline.

I never really knew what the purpose of it was, I have an old single one on there, but it is pretty well rotted. I wanted to replace it. I like to do my homework and find what is the best bang for my buck. The way it sounds, I should just replace it with a cheapo.
