New Steering Stabilizer

So I took a look under the Wrangler the other day and noticed that a puddle of fluid under my stabilizer. The entire cylinder was covered as well. So my question is what brand of steering stabilizer would be the most beneficial and would a Rubicon Express be a pretty good part? I'm getting the RE budget boost lift with RE shocks soon and sort of wanted to keep everything matching. Thanks.

Guys seem to like the OME due to its construction with the shaft protected by metal tube, others have a booty on it. Other than that I understand it really doesn't matter...it's just a shock with 50/50 valving. I'll probably try a $20 Napa job and paint it black when I replace mine.

Go to brand x parts store and get a stock replacement. That is unless you want something shiny to match your new shocks and are willing to pay twice as much for the shiny.

I bought a Rough Country 2.2 Stabilizer, and it started to leak within 6 months (Rough Country would not warranty it) . Then I bought a Gabriel Stabilizer (painted it grey) for half the price from auto zone and has been working fine for over 1.5 years.

Thank you all! I didn't go with an OME since they're a bit more pricey. I ended up with the RE with a lifetime warranty

I used to say they were all the same but for the hell of it I ran a NAPA one for a year ( about 3,000 miles ) and then a couple months ago I switched to OME . I normally use OME and their is a difference.
