I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this is my review of the Rough Country Dual Steering Stabilizers fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. It's important to remember what a steering stabilizer, or more accurately, steering damper is designed to do, and that is one thing and one thing only. When the tires hit a bump in the road, the damper takes up some of that shock, so you don't feel all of it up in the steering wheel in your hands. A steering stabilizer is not designed to fix a wobble, certainly to fix death wobble, or to cure bump steer. If you have any of those steering or suspension issues, there are ways to identify them and repair them, and a steering stabilizer is not one of them.However, if you have a broken or leaking steering stabilizer, it does make sense to replace it, and I would replace it with an inexpensive OE style stabilizer. All steering stabilizers are just 50/50 valve shocks, and there isn't a good reason to spend 100, 200, $300 on a steering stabilizer. Now, this setup is designed for those who want the look of a dual steering stabilizer on the front of their jeep. However, I wouldn't expect this to provide more performance in any way, shape or form. If anything, this is going to cause more wear and tear on your steering components, which is going to cause them to wear out sooner.If you do decide to run a dual steering stabilizer setup on your jeep, this isn't a bad kit to get. The brackets are really beefy, the welds look strong, and they're all topped off with a textured black powder coated finish. Most importantly, the stabilizers that are included in the kit are pretty high quality. They're Rough Country's highest level performance 2.2 shocks, and the kit includes all the hardware necessary to get all of this installed. This steering stabilizer kit installs on the jeep pretty easily.The first step is to remove the factory stabilizer, which will come off with just two bolts. From there, you can install the bracket that goes on the axle tube, and then the two brackets that go on the tie rod. You want to leave everything loose, then install the steering stabilizers themselves, and follow the instructions very carefully to make sure you adjust things properly. You want to get it adjusted, so that you can still turn the steering wheel all the way from lock to lock without anything binding or bottling out. The whole installation should take about two hours and you won't need any specialty tools, just some sockets and some wrenches.So, if you do decide to go with a dual steering stabilizer kit on your jeep, I think this isn't a bad kit to go with. It's pretty complete, it's well built, and it's priced fairly. However, if you just have a leaking factory steering stabilizer or a bent one, I would recommend replacing it with an OE single steering stabilizer. This is a situation where two isn't always better than one. As I mentioned before, if you have a properly setup suspension, a steering stabilizer is a luxury and not a necessity, and it's certainly isn't a cure-all for suspension issues.So, that's my review of the Rough Country Dual Steering Stabilizer fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs.

If you looking for a replacement or an upgrade this is a good step up. Installed it last weekend and I have noticed a complete difference in the ride. It takes a lot of bumps out the steering wheel. Now removing the was a big pain. Installation was ok. Make sure you have a tape measure. It helps out with full lock to lock in shocks.Helpful (0)

Installing new stabilizers
The bards part was installing the rough country steering stabilizers the direction that come with the kit are in black and white and hard to see. So I went to the web site and watched the install which was the way to go. After looking at both ways go with the web site. New that it is on you can tell that does make the Jeep feel like there is very little play in steering wheel and bumps are less jerk in the steering wheelHelpful (0)

The delivery came fast, but the brackets that mount to the axle were chipped and peeling and scratch easy. The shocks itself seemed stiff and durable. The install took half an hour. The ride seemed slightly improved whilst going over bumps and pot holes, the jeep feels like it slightly has more control. I expected more of a difference but it’s not terrible.Helpful (0)

Wonderful product, no need for a big expensive stabilizer, this gets the job done, I used to get wobbles when I’d hit bumps at about 25-30 mph and now I hit those same bumps every day and it feels stronger than stock.Helpful (0)

Hello! I just have a quick question, I plan on lifting my jeep by 3.5-4 inches and putting on after market rims and 35 inch tires on my jeep. I was wondering if i should get a dual steering stabilizer to avoid running into any type of suspension issues.
The Rough Country Dual Steering Stabilizer or any steering stabilizer would not correct any suspension issues. The dual stabilizer would lessen any feedback to the steering wheel from bumps and absorb some vibrations that may occur on Wranglers that have been outfitted with larger tires. Steering stabilizers will not fix death wobble or any issues with suspension components.
Can you use this product on a nonlifted jeep running 35" tires to stabilize steering ?
Unfortunately, for fitment reasons, you would not be able to use the Rough Country Dual Steering Stabilizer on a stock height Wrangler. It is specifically designed for Wranglers with a 2" to 6" lift kit.
Can this be used on a Jeep with 2 inch spacers
Will this work with the heavy duty tie rod offered by teraflex?
Yes, as this steering stabilizer is designed to fit with an otherwise stock application, and the tie rod (item J103704) is scheduled to fit with an otherwise stock application, it is safe to assume they will certainly work together.
Hi I have a 2007 2door with leveling kit with 33 tires..will this work on my set up
As long as the leveling kit puts you at least 2" high this will work for you.
This is listed on the manufacturer site to accommodate a model equipped with a 2-inch or more suspension lift. http://www.roughcountry.com/steering-stabilizer-8734930.html
The shocks rough country uses for this kit is designed specifically for this application, and would not be able to recommend swapping them for another brand.
For something of this nature we would recommend calling in or chatting to speak with one of our experts to determine what would be the best option for your setup.
The Rough Country Dual Steering Stabilizer will not limit your turning radius no.
We have not heard of an issue with the tie rod after installing the Rough Country Dual Steering Stabilizer. We would suggest having your local shop take a look to determine what is going on with your Jeep.
The Rough Country Dual Steering Stabilizer can be run with your lift, but typically a single stabilizer is used for lifts of that height as the dual is not needed.
The Rough Country Dual Steering Stabilizer will not require an alignment.
Hi,I'm sorry to hear you are having problems with your steering stabilizer, please call or send us an email and we can help you out with your problem. http://www.extremeterrain.com/contact.html
Hello, There could be a few different things causing your DW. I would recommend running through all the front end suspension components and making sure everything is in place. If you wanted help in finding what may be the problem feel free to give u a call so we can walk though the process.
Hello, this Rough Country Dual Steering Stabilizer is not a suggested or needed part. If your factory steering stabilizer is not leaking or damaged then you do not need to upgrade it.
