Replaces AM steering stabilizer 3x last 8 months

I have an 08 f250 with 6 inch pro comp lift, pretty basic lift. Stock trac bars with the extenders. 37 inch tires. I have now replaced my pro comp steering stabilizer 3 times and no one seems to know why teu are going out so fast.. What do you all think?

I think you definitely have something else going on. You might want to go through the front end. Have you had an alignment done lately? Might want to check out the track rod out too. Have your friend turn the wheel and you watch everything. Then might be worth it to just jack up the front end and do the wiggle test to see if anything is loose. Ball joints, wheel bearings, steering components, track rod, etc etc...

The alignment can check to see what the castor is set at...

Death wobble before lift? Or just after?

If the truck death wobbles without a stabilizer then the stab is working overtime trying to calm down the oscillation. This leads to its untimely death. A better stabilzer like a Bilstein will work better but you are just putting a bigger band aid on a gun shot would. You need to fix the under lying problem first.
