Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com and this is my review and installation of the Rough Country Dual Steering Stabilizers fitting all 1997 to 2006 TJs. Today, we are gonna talk through the installation of this dual steering stabilizer setup, which I am gonna give two out of three wrenches. This does require a little bit of drilling in order to get it installed on your Jeep, so if that's not something you're comfortable with, you will wanna take this to a shop and have them help you install it. We're also gonna talk through some of the features and the construction of this setup. It's important to know what a steering stabilizer or steering damper is designed to do and what it's not designed to do. Now, if you have an issue with your suspension or your steering geometry and you have a wobble or a death wobble, or you have any sort of bump steer, a steering stabilizer and specifically a dual steering stabilizer is not going to fix those problems. Those problems are diagnosable and fixable, and they are things that you wanna take care of before installing a new steering stabilizer. If you install a steering stabilizer and you have those issues, all you're going to do is cover up the issues until you blow out the new steering stabilizer and still have the same problems. So again, a steering stabilizer setup, especially dual setup, is not designed to fix or to cover up those issues. Fixing the issues you'd have, and then if you decide to install a dual steering stabilizer, you certainly can. However, this is not going to be a necessity for those of you with big lifts and big tires. In fact, some people will say that having a dual steering stabilizer setup on your Jeep is actually more of a detriment than anything else, because it does require a lot more force to actually turn the wheels back and forth, which can wear out steering components, U-joints, steering boxes, and tire rod ends a little bit quicker than they would otherwise wear out. If you have a properly set up suspension and steering setup on your Jeep, a steering stabilizer of any kind is a luxury and not a necessity, and a dual setup like this is definitely not necessary. However, if you do decide you want to add a dual steering stabilizer setup onto your Jeep, I think that this one is fairly inexpensive and comes with all of the components you'll need. As far as construction goes, all steering stabilizers are in the same thing. They're just a 50-50 valve hydraulic shock, and that's what you're getting in this kit from Rough Country. You're simply getting two of them, and you're getting all of the brackets necessary to allow you to run two steering stabilizers in the place of a factory single stabilizer. So as I said before, getting this installed on your Jeep is going to be a two out of three wrench installation because there is some drilling involved, but overall, it's a fairly simple installation and you should be able to get it done in right around an hour. The first step is going to be removing your factory steering stabilizer, but hang on to all of the hardware because you are going to reuse some of it. Once that factory steering stabilizer is out of the way, you will use the template that's included with this setup in order to mark center punch and drill out the hole that you need to drill on the axle side of the mount. Once that's drilled out, you'll install the bracket that's included, you install the rest of the bracketry that goes on the steering linkage side of the system, and then simply bolt your dual steering stabilizers in place between the two new brackets that you just installed. You're not gonna need any specialty tools to get this job done, but you will need a drill and a good sharp set of drill bits, and as I said before, about an hours' time. As I said before, I do think that this is a fairly priced setup. If you do want to install dual steering stabilizers on your Jeep, there isn't a reason to spend a ton of money. This is a simple system that works and is fairly inexpensive. So if you decide you want to run dual steering stabilizers on your Jeep, this is going to be a simple setup that's inexpensive and fairly easy to install, as long as you're willing to drill one hole. So that's my review of the Rough Country Dual Steering Stabilizers fitting all 1997 to 2006 TJs that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

Kit Includes. The Rough Country Dual Steering Stabilizer Kit includes stabilizers, mounting brackets, and necessary hardware.

Function. These Jeep Wrangler TJ steering stabilizers enhance control and stability of 33-inch and larger tires. As these stabilizers are designed to mount above the axle, they offer better clearance for stable off-road driving. The 50/50 valved dual setup of these stabilizers enhances vibration dampening to reduce wobbling.

Fitment. These steering stabilizer shocks work best with Jeep Wrangler TJ 97-06 models that have a stock steering setup. Their bolt-on installation makes setup quick and easy.

Freight Notes. Freight items can only be shipped within the continental 48 states, no expedited methods.

Duel front stabilizer

Excellent stabilizer. I had a little shimmy between 40-50 mph and the duel stabilizer fixed the shimmy. Easy install and good instructions.

    Good product.

    Replaced the factory setup, which was tiny and clearly wore out. My jeep, with this and a few other new front end parts drives like new again. The hard bumps in the rough upstae NY back roads,4" suspenion lift 2" body rolling on 35's ..... the new set up, front ends calms down like a new vehicle stock. I have the Dual RC other type, on my jku, and love that too.

    Quick and easy installation

    Very happy with how quick and simple the installation was. Installation does require drilling a hole however the installation guide has a drilling template to follow which made it much easier to make sure the hole is in the correct spot. Ride quality is much improved as i paired this install with install of 3.25" lift also from Rough Country.

    Great product

    I should have went with the dual steering stabilizer before, i had a single steering stabilizer and it was not as effective as the dual ones are. I recommend these esp if you are running 37inch tires like i am. Might have to do some modification to fit. But overall good part.

    Works perfect

    I installed this because it basically mounts in the same place as the factory stabilizer with the exception of drilling one hole. With that being said I now have two shocks instead of just the one and they do not hang down in the way like other add on stabilizers do which is great for ground clearance. Installed in 30 minutes and it has exceeded my expectations.

    Great product

    I had been running a 2 inch lift with 33x12.50-15 on my 01 TJ and a stock steering stabilizer. Then I went to a 5 inch lift and the stock steering stabilizer was not holding up so after many read reviews I decided to go with this dual stabilizer which has now made my jeep handle like it never has before. So all in all I'm one happy customer!

    Steering Stabilizer

    This steering stabilizer was working great. I've had it for about 6 months now. I had just noticed the other day that this dual steering stabilizer has bent my bracket nearly completely off.
