Steering Stabilizer

Hey guys, I need to replace my stock steering stabilizer. I am running 33's now, do you all have a preference on what type (brand) of shock to put on?
Thanks

The standard is the monroe 2928 steering stabilizer. It is readily available at most autoparts stores, bigger than stock and is cheap.

Cool. Thanks guys. I didn't know if there was one brand that was better than the rest or if there was one to stay away from.
Thanks.

Ok, I did a little research and Advanced Auto Parts has Rancho RS5000 for $56 and a Monroe for $30. Why the big difference in price? Is it worth the extra money to get the Rancho?
Thanks for all the input.

Well, Rancho is made by teneco, and tenneco also makes monroe. and tenneco also makes rustys...and many many many others. Of course the specifications can vary by the manufacturer but for a steering stabilizer there is no magic. It is a 50:50 valved shock. Rancho may include a boot, nicer packaging, white paint, sticker and you a charge a little more to subsidize the cost of all those cool ads in magazines.

With the larger tires, it's always good to install a heavy duty stabilizer over the stock one.

I've used the stock one with 33's with no problems.I prefer it to match the shocks and I like the heavy duty rod.The stock ones can bend easily.
