Steering Stabilizer what you got??

I am getting ready to change mine as it is shot. My question for everyone is which one are you running and how do you like it pro's / con's. Thanks in advance. I am particularly interested in those running the bilstien.

I have a $25 parts store replacement for a an old Dodge pickup, $10 for the bracket = good to go. I'm a believer that a high dollar steering stabilizer is not going to be an advantage to me. Though I'm curious on why it would be though..

I am all down for opinions but as my sons Relgion teacher tells him , you can say or believe whatever you want but please explain to me why you believe in your thouhghts.

FYI, I am not religious. I just worship the TOTONKA !!!!!!!!!!!

Oh yeah , I do ask because I have one and after running the CON my dual stablizers look Sarah Palins daughters legs all twistied up.

I have Whats left of two complete rough country setups laying in the scrap metal bin. If you never wheel it will probably work out of for you. The first one after multiple encounters with the trackbar one tsba was crushed shut, wich led to the brakcet on the axle spinning all the time resulting in the stab mounting bolt rubbing on the tie rod. Well th bolt rubbed a whole in the tire rod so i ditched it to scrap. Sfccotton had the same setup and his was holding up better until her ran the dusy and it reaked havok on his whole steering system wich im sure he will enlighten you more on that LOL

Best bang for the bunk I think but my opinion is clearly skewed...
Fox is $55 more and pretty much the same thing. Bilstein is a little less but won't allow the user to tune the PSI of nitrogen internally.

How necessary is it to tune the PSI on a steering damper?
What is your set at default compared to the Bilstein?

This is what I did and it works:
SS + relocate it to the top
I got my Woods relocate stabilizer on. What a difference in location. This is just smart engineering. Why the factory hangs it on the bottom is beyond me. I used my new Monroe SS #SC-2960 that I painted yellow by the way and slapped a Monroe sticker on it. It came from O'Reillys in black paint form for $37.99. I had to grind some of the flair off the SS at the bracket to make it fit. Simple fix for a much bigger SS that doesn't cost much. Very happy with Woods products.

As dialed in as you can get with a bent tie rod.

I have the fox s/s and will be the first to tell you I got it cause it looks sweet. I probably do not need one at all. I knocked the shredder valve off (due to the way it was originally mounted) and have had a hard time finding a place to refill it with nitro (tire shops want nothing to do with it) so its currently on but at 0 psi.
A s/s is almost like that skid row skid, 90% for looks.

It all depends... I have found that every person likes it a little differently. That is why being able to tune it to your specs is an advantage. Ours are set @40 PSI, I don't know what the Bilsteins are set at.

do you need new mounts for the poly stabilizer? or does it mount of to factory mounts, or are new ones included? just thinking about picking one up soon.
