I think dual steering stablizers are a necessary thing if nothing else to fix the "death wobble" that is common on the 4X4. You can get a set for just over 100.00 from Rough Country and they seem to work fine.

Yes with the lift and tires. After my lift and tires the truck would hit a bump and i would think the truck was just going to fall apart. It got so bad i would have to stop completely to gain control of the truck. I put on the dual steering stabilizers and have had no problem since. I watched a F250 Amarillo the other day wobble so bad at 50 mph that i thought the bed was going to come off of it.

Any tires bigger than a 35" you will definitely need a Dual Stabilizer, check out Top Gun Customz website or ours as we are one of there only dealers online.

I agree with cobb. Dual stabilizers are beneficial on any tire and lift size especially if the truck is seeing use on rough pavement or offroad

steering stabilizers are not the cure for death wobble. True death wobble can come from worn tie rod ends, poor suspension geometry, out of spec alignment, etc. A steering stabilizer might mask the problem, but a "dialed-in" front end should be able to go down the road with no stabilizer at all. Of course you want one, and in some cases (lifts, bigger tires, etc) you want two, but not to cover up a problem.
