Duel steering stabilizers or not??

I don't know if by leveling my truck and adding 325/60/20s if it necessary to add duel stabilizers or not? I plan on installing new bilsteins 5100 all the way around including a new steering stabilizer shock. But if this isn't enough for the lift and new tires please let me know so I can budget for a duel system.



Also what brands and where to look for the duel setup should I look?

i wouldny budget for duals, there is no need, they are looks only !!!!! what i would budget for is a bilstein 7100 series stabilizer, some tires / trucks have an inherent pull. this stabilizer allows pressure adjustments to aid in compensating this pull.

I'm planning on going with the same setup (leveled and 325/60/R20) and plan on running a dual stabilizer setup from topguncustomz with Bilstein cylinders. I know it may be mostly for looks, but I like the look!

05-07 Ford Super Duty F250/F350 Dual Steering Stabilizer Black with Bilstein Cylinders

you won't be sorry with the Top Gunz kit and you don't need to mount the logo if you don't want it

I never figured how a pressurized single stabilizer worked ?

I know the dual opposing equalize each other but a single seems like it would always push a little ?

I think I'll prob just do the duel system and be done with it. For performance, ride and looks. Prob doing the Bilstein shocks to match the 5100s on the rest of the truck. Duel systems aren't as $$$ as I thought they were.

I ran 365/65-15 Toyo A/Ts on my 2003 with 5 inches of lift and NO steering stabilizer for several years. In fact, in the 6 years I've had my truck, I think it had one on for about 2 months before I bent it out wheelin one night. I've never seen the need for one on my truck.

What year is your truck? Seems to me that the 05 and up with coils need a stabilizer more than my leaf sprung truck.
