Do you have any issues? I had the blown out stock one on my 6" lift with no issues. Then I removed it completely when I went to 12". Truck steered great and didn't wander at all.

I do have hydro assist now. Mainly because of the large meats on the truck. But before that I really didn't need any.

Does it wander? Or is it just hard to steer?

I purchased the skyjacker dual steering stabilizer for right around $140 with shipping and it is unbelievable in my opinion. I can't even tell that there are bigger tires are on there and is steers great. Would definitely recommend it.
