Track bar and steering stabilizer

i'm looking into purchasing these two things within the next month or so i'm looking for some help and opinions.

I'm looking at the Icon adjustable track bar, where is the cheapest place to get this?

Also, i'm looking at a good steering stabilizer bracket with using Bilstein steering stabilizers. I've been looking at top gun customz for the steering bracket and stabilizers but would like some opinions on what is a good one to get. I dont want something gaudy or who's name is flashy on it, i just want a nice kit that works.

top gun is a nice set up and you don't need to install the piece with their name


I still question if u need an adjustable trac bar ?

the trac bar is mainly because of the newton spacers i have to center my axel. I want to fix the geometry the correct way instead of how it is now. It's still up in the air however. I mainly am looking at the dual steering stabilizer.

If your still looking for a trackbar I would definitely recommend the PMF solid mount trackbar not to sound like a thread jacker but I recently had a case of death wobble and had a clunking noise in the front of the truck. Searched and searched for a trackbar and some come with top bushings or a bearing so I was deciding on a icon or similar bar even pmf makes one with the top bushing. So I decided on calling pmfsuspensions.com and he recommended the solid mount good thing too cause oh btw solid mount replaces the bottom ball joint with a heim joint, ok back to the story the top trackbar bushing and the lower trackbar ball joint were both bad. The good thing about the solid mount is the lower heim is rebuildable and greaseable also this bar is all beef and the ends are even beefier,just for info I put about 30k on this bar no problems so far. For stabilizers I have the top gun customz with the bilsteins love this too and no problems.

We will be accepting orders for our new dual steering stabilizer kit later today or tomorrow. Normal retail on it will be $399 but we will have an introductory sale on them at $299. They will use Bilstein dampener specific shocks and heavily gusseted bracketry. The kit will work for both stock height and lifted applications with the ability to mount the shocks below or above the bracket for extra clearance (stock height will have to be mounted below). I will post some pictures ASAP. If you have any questions on any of our products, dont hesitate to ask!
