Steering Stabilizer Question

So two things first.. yes I used the search, and no I dont know alot about steering and suspension so bear with me.

So here are a few pics of my front end underneath.

Obviously, (i think), there is no stock steering stabilizer. I have a plow on my truck, and am having bigger 33's put on this thursday. Do you all think a dual kit would work for my truck, and benefit me? I just had the whole front end rebuilt totaling $3k, so anything to lessen the load up there would be awsome. I read this on tough country's web site: "Steering stabilizers are designed to restrain "bump steering" and front end vibration, giving added life to tires, ball joints, and other steering components. A multiple stabilizer kit is recommended for vehicles equipped with a snow plow, winch, or 35" tires and above." Reading that, and combined with the fact that all my friends have always said my steering was 'rough' and 'tough' has basically got me to asking this.

And if I had a stabilizer, or were going to put a dual kit in, where does it bolt up, or is it even just a bolt on? I have mechanical abilities, just dont know technical names etc about the suspension and steering areas. Any recommendations on good kits on a budget?

(And sorry about my lack on knowledge lol)
