I would go dual if you plan on running 35" or bigger tires. The topguncustomz kit is very nicely made. I have installed a few of them on friends trucks.

I agree, you dont need a dual system unless you are running 35's or larger. Anything under that and it would be overkill.

Stock size tires are a smaller 34 if I remember correctly. They are pretty narrow compared to a 35x12.5 so you dont have nearly the resistance as a 35x12.5 or larger.

How hard is it to install a steering stabilizer. How do you compress it or what do you have to do?

It is really easy. The new bracket just bolts on and the other end of the shock just bolts in. The shocks are not hard to compress. Took me 35 minutes to put my dual set up on.
