When are dual steering stabilizers necessary?
So my 04 Ex came with a 3.5" Fabtech lift and a dual (opposing) steering stabilizer setup, but the two shocks are in bad shape. I was thinking about replacing, but are they even needed? Other than the typical "take them off and try it without them" which I will more than likely try, at what point is a stabilizer or duals necessary? Is it really necessary with only 3.5" and 325/65/18's? I guess part of it could depend on how it rides and drives, but was curious if there was "a point" where they were needed. I guess part of me is stuck in 1/2 ton world where sometimes excessive stabilizer "pressure" could cause problems making the steering box lossen up from the frame or wallow out the holes.
