Who has the best and what are all your opinions?
This is great advice from a pro. I have friends running 37's with no SS. They are a good idea but if you have to run a heavy duty one you may be masking other issues like I am right now. I'm replacing everything on my front end soon so I plan to run a budget one after that. Just my .02....I bought a $30 pro comp because my stocker failed, shouldn't need much more than that. Anything more may be masking other issues in my opinion.
Stabilizer isn't going to do much for you barn on wheels on a windy day. That's a combo of the plain aerodynamics and body roll coming in to play. The wind isn't turning the front tires...You can get a little firmer wheel with one, but you will still get tossed with windI still have the stock steering stabilizer on mine but I am looking for something a little stiffer for highway driving. It feels a little soft when its really windy on the highway. A friend gave me is rough country dual stabilizer but it wont work on my jeep because of the upgraded front axle so thinking of just going with the bilstein.
It didn't fix it...It just masked the real issue, which will return after some time.I just put on the Skyjacker Dual (in an effort to solve a death wobble issue). Everytyhing seems to be working much nicer and firmer. I know the steering stabs are not the most appropriate solution for the wobble, but so far it is the only thing that has fixed it.
I can be convinced that I am just masking the problem.That, or it wasn't death wobble to begin with.
I missed the part about removing the stabilizer so I will try that next. And ive checked the upper trackbar bushing and torqued it to 140 lbft. Other than removing the steering stabilizer the only other thing I havent checked are the control arms. Would the bushings being bad in the stock control arms cause DW after hitting a pothole?When you guys say that you went through my list and didn't find anything, did you actually remove the steering stabilizer, trackbar, control arms, etc. to inspect all the bolt holes, welds, bushings, etc., and either switch to 9/16" trackbar bolts or weld in front and rear washers on the axle and frame side trackbar brackets?

I havent tried weld in washers or a bigger bolt. When i loosened the upper trackbar bolt it had some slop im guessing thats because of the size difference you talk about. Could that actually be the problem even though its torqued to 140 ft lb?
