Would a dual stabilizer kit be needed for a stock 2006 4x4 dually? I have the stock one on there now and was wondering if it would be better?

i also wanted a dual stabilizer. I was told that you need at least a leveling kit for it to work. Dont know if that is true or not. I went with a KYB single replacement.

did that help?. i noticed that the mounting points are way different than stock.....the straight across after market mounts look like they might control better. i do have a 2" level lift
