steering stabilizer

Mines been hit by a few too many rocks. Seems to be working, but I'm having issues staying in a lane at 50mph, so I think its gonna get replaced, along with shackles and tires.

Is the double stabilizer worth it? pros and cons...

If a single, which one? I've got 4" of lift and 33 M/ts, might go back to 35" swampers.

The stabilizer will have no effect on how the vehicle tracks down the highway. Get the tires replaced and have the alignment checked, change shackles or bushings, then see how it tracks down the road.

It's just a Jeep, and if you don't wheel it once in a while, it's not even that.

^^^ what Supes said

a stabilizer will only lessen the feel of actual problems, not correct them.

not that they are bad to have, but they should be the last thing you check.

I agree. Your wandering is likely something else. Check the following in no particular order: Wheel bearings, tie rod ends, ball joints, steering box play, steering box mounting points, steering shaft.
