For whatever reason, the coil sprung trucks need a stabilizer. I've run 285s, 315s, and 365s on mine without one, but it's a 2003.

TRICO Force wiper blades
Yellow Military Aircraft Valve Stem Caps
Offensive "Stick Family" Decal
Big Ol'Honkin 1 1/4" Shank Receiver Hitch


WHAT!?! I was trying to list stuff that everyone else
hasn't already listed for their truck!

If you put one on the tie rod, then no it is not needed on the drag link!

I meant to say tie rod, the stabilizer that is mounted to the tie rod fell off.
