Dual Steering Stabilizers

Ok, well into the upgrade of my '05 250, have done the EGR cooler delete and raised it 6" (procomp) and have 35's under it. I was planning on exhaust next but on my last trip I noticed the truck wandering all over the place on the road. Won't be taking it off road very much at all, only a few times during hunting season. Did hit an expansion joint on the highway and my hands went quarter turn on the wheel. Kind of unnerving. So I started looking at dual kits. I went to my local guy and he spoke of the Fabtech highly but priced it at $700+. That seemed steep for the dual kit so I started looking around. Bottom line... what are you guys recommedations for the best value (not cheapest, best value) kit

Check your steering box and power steering pump. Thats what my dads 6oh felt like when his box was going. Also my old 96er felt like that too. The steering stabilizer never helped either one.

I had simular problems with my '06. I installed the Dual Fabtech Dirt Logic 2.25 Stablizers with EXCELLENT results. Surf EBAY I may recall seeing a kit up for sale NIB cheaper than retail.

my truck started jumping the rearend sideways after just a 2" leveling kit, we had a customer at work with an 05 250 and his was doing it too, i think the increased angel on the trac bar causes this??, in fact i got a service advisory from ford saying if you install a lift or leveling kit it may cause erratic control at higher speeds.

we installed a dual stabilzer on a customers truck along with the factory stabilizer, it made a HUGE difference in control..although the main bracket on the set up snapped clean off a week later put a new one on..no problems
