    steering stabilizer

    About a month ago i broke my stock SS and have been running without one ever since the fact. My jeep handles perfectly fine without a SS but i wanted to know if running without it will cause any issues later down the road, is it causing any premature wear or stress on steering components not having a SS?

    Thanks for anyone's input.

    No you will be fine. If anything you will notice when things, like ball joints, are worn out easier. You can fine stock SS on Craigslist for super cheap

    since it helps smooth the oscillating effect of the tires I'd put another stock SS back in. IMO without it the job of the SS gets put on the drag link (steering box), tie rod and track bar.

    That's what my concern is, drives perfect but i don't want to do any damage to other components.

    being in Australia its a bit harder to track down stock take off parts compared to you guys in the states I've looked around and came up empty, is there aftermarket SS you would recommend?

    I have heard that the rancho on is very similar to the stock one in terms of how it feels. Outside of that I don't know because I still run the stock one and will until I need hydro assist.

    I use a bilstein SS and have been very happy with it.

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
