steering stabilizer?

Im getting the Icon 4.5 for my truck really soon and Ive been wondering if the dual steering stabilizer is really worth the extra coin. I live in MS but really close to memphis and the roads here are horrible bc all the truck traffic.
If its really worth the extra money is there a cheaper one or brand that I can get to go with the Icon lift?
any suggestions would be really appreciated.
Thanks.

Ill be running 37s on stock 20s

IMO, a dual nitrogen charged (using Icon or Bilstein shocks) steering stabilizer setup is a big improvement on 05+ trucks.


Icon is the cleanest looking setup with the billet clamps that they use to secure the shocks to the tie rod.

Other options for a little less coin are the Rize and BDS brackets.
Also, Bilsteins are cheaper than the Icons.

I have the dual Icon setup and love it. It made a really big difference when I put it on. I was running 37's at the time on a 6" lift.

Be sure to toss the factory stabilizer in the trash when you install a dual setup like the Icon that uses charged shocks.

The steering stabilizer is only going to help over roads with lots of potholes/patches. If the roads are just grooved from truck traffic, they won't help.

Don't see how anyone is still using stockers. I had slight shimmy over potholes with stock tires and took my truck in due to this issue. FROD said it was the norm. Installed Fabtech dual stabilizers after my lift and What A Difference It Made!! $600.00 but would do it again
