need steering stabilizer

Well Im replacing my steering stabilizer soon, mine is leaking and worn out. I have single now, is it worth getting a dual stabilizer? And what brands do you guys recommend? I have rancho now..

I'm watching this one. I have to replace too. I'm guessing one should be enough with 35" (or less) tires assuming they balance out decent.

Well Icon makes a very nice dual shock one. But if you don't have vibration that isn't caused by worn out suspension parts you really don't need one.

I have duals on mine with 35's. Makes the steering nicer IMHO. Same with my Jeep it liked 2 better than one. I believe mine is either made by rough Country or Rancho

Ok so why do you put a dual stabilizer on? Just for vibrations? I am running 37s would it be worth it to buy one?

I want to add one on my truck. It doesn't have one from the factory. Can i just bolt one on or are there lots of different steering parts needed to do that?

they make kits that will fit trucks without the one from the factory.
