Steering stabilizers

I got an 01 4x4 f450 with a 4 inch lift and they put dual steering stabilizers under it. I didn't do the work so idk brands. But where can I get a new set from? Is there any reason to do a dual set up? Mine seem to be getting to much play causing the truck to shake bad. Thought it was the ball joints changed them. Had tires rebalanced still nothing

take the steering stabilizers off and see if it still does it.
id say your tie rods are shot or the steering box itself.
you only need 1 steering stabilizer anyways.

Yep, a lot of trucks didn't even come with em. Mine has a 4" lift and is still OEM. It won't hurt to drive with out it, but your going to feel more bumps and grooves in the road. But check your tie rods and the nut that holds the pitman arm on. If it's loose, you'll need to get a new one and it needs to be torqued to ~400ft. Lbs.

I was running 40's with no stabilizer. You got something else going wrong with the front end. Put it up on some blocks and start shaking stuff..LOL. Or even have a buddy steer it while you watch from underneath.
