duel steering stabilizer

hey everyone,i am new to the diesel trucks just bought a 08 f350 (6months ago) and the steering seems to be kinda wondering, i thought it might be the tires,they were pretty worn so i just got new ones (same tire)305/55/20.the truck has a 2" level kit on it everything else stock....my question is COULD THE STOCK STEERING STABILIZER BE WORE OUT 125000 miles.AND WOULD A DUEL STABILIZER FIX THIS PROB.also i looked at front ent everything seems tight,had some one turn wheel while under truck everthing looked good.also what is best duel steering stabilizer.thanks

To me... the best... One Up Offroad, but probably a little too much for your application. First pull off the shock and see if it is toast. If it is and you are not worried about the cool factor just get an upgraded steering stablizer shock. I am sure Icon or bilstein make a replacement shock for your application. If you like the cool factor there are plenty of dual stabilizer setups out there to chose from.

For ****s and giggles and since everyone likes pictures here is an One Up Offroad setup on my truck.... 99-04

and here is one on an 08....

A steering stabilizer wont fix wandering you need more caster especially if you have a level kit.
