    Steering stabilizers... Which brand do you like?

    I'm thinking about going with the Bilstein 5100 HD stabilizer. Who's running the Bilstein and how do you like it? I'm open for suggestions/advice. Thanks guys.

    Good. It looks like a nice one. The reason I want a good one is because I'm getting a slight left to right shimmy after hitting bumps in the road. It's far from death wobble, but still quite noticeable and I don't want to damage my front end so I'm thinking of combining this stabilizer with a beefier tie rod and better drag link. But that'll be a little later. I'm not keen on steering but I'm hoping this will be enough of a preventative measure to keep my Jeep riding good and not break anything or get death wobble.

    I hope I'm right. I've got a completely stock steering set up as of now. I'm on 305/70's (34's) so I think some strengthening might be in order.

    If you have a shimmy a stabilizer is not the way to go. You need to check everything in your front end. You should be able to drive without a stabilizer and be fine.

    Your just going to mask the problem with a stabilizer.

    That's kind of what I was afraid of. What are some things you'd recommend checking first?

    Running without one right now.

    I'll throw the stock one back on until I get steering assist. I wouldn't bother with any of the after market ones. A lot of people get them and then can't figure out why there jeep pulls to the left.

    Is your jeep stock or modified?

    Are your draglink and trackbar parallel (or close to parallel) to each other?

    Check your track bar bolts.

About us
“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.
