Steering stabilizer

Looking into dual steering stabilizers, I got a 2013 rubicon with a 4" lift and 35x12.50 tires what do you guys recommend getting. I'm not seeing a lot out there.

Re: Steering stabilizer

A properly adjusted suspension doesn't require anything other than the stock stabilizer. That being said you might be able to mask symptoms of other issues with a beefier stabilizer if that's your choice.

Re: Steering stabilizer

I have a Fox ATS and like it a lot, nice to have the ability to adjust.

Re: Steering stabilizer

I was watching YouTube and a guy had his jeep with a 4 or 5" lift and 37" tires and no stabilizer and drove perfectly straight haha. I had my tires balanced and had an alignment done as soon as I got the lift on and this thing is all over the road still. Any suggestions to get this thing driving straight without use of the dampers?

Re: Steering stabilizer

Most likely something is worn out (track bar bolt hole, tie rods, bushings, etc). Other options are bad alignment (Jeep needs re-align after a lift, I recommend a lifetime alignment from Firestone), or the caster angle is off.

Lay on the ground while someone else steers the jeep back and forth. You're looking for something like this:



or this

What was done on the lift to correct your geometry? Do you have adjustable control arms up front? What's your caster reading? Is there an adjustable front trackbar to center the wheels under the Jeep? I would start with making sure the lift is setup right before trying to mask with a stabilizer. 4" is a lot of lift if these items aren't addressed.
