Question steering stablizers

2000 excursion 96000 285/70/17 rims & toyo tires. i was driveing in the rain and hit a puddel and it pulled hard, hard enuff for me to not to wreck.

i was wondering if a dual steering stablizer would help. the original is still on it and if i do it to the EX i think i will do it to F350

i have looked at lots of styels. OPPOSING STYLE, STOCK LOCATION STYLE
how hard is the OPPOSING STYLE to install

There are plenty of options out there. Take a look on 4wheelparts website to see some of the different ones. You can either replace the stocker with a regular single aftermarket stabilizer, go to a dual setup, or do what I did and go with a single Fox steering stabilizer. I'm runnin 35's with a single Fox and not havin any problems at all. The place where I bought mine said you don't really need duals(foxes) unles you are running 37's over bigger. I had some shake due to bad brakes before I put on the Fox. After the install, I couldn't hardly feel it, when I changed the brakes, it doesn't wonder at all! If you go with the Fox, you'll have to move the factory bracket, but I think it took me all of 45 minutes and that was quadruple checking everything to make sure it fit right without bottoming out. The single Fox ran me 130 and the shock is completely rebuildable should you ever blow it, and I doubt you will. The dual kits you'll find or less than 300 have non-serviceable shocks.

they are very easy to install.. most are bolt on kits... all the major manufacturers have them.... let me know what price range your looking at so that i can price out the kits in that range..... the SS shocks will be in the higher priced options....

I don't have any specifics for you, just that I did the dual steering stabilizer and my EX is so much nicer to drive now. I too felt it was almost dangerous at times before. It made a HUGE difference.

i too have the Fox racing 2.0 single stabilizer and I'm running 37' tires, works great and looks cool also. I like having the ability to rebuild if nescessary, install was very easy. 4wparts had it for $128 with free shipping
