    Review & Install Video

    Hi, I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com. This is my review of the Rough Country Performance 2.2 Steering Stabilizer fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs [SP]. This will work on either your two-door or your four-door. I like this steering stabilizer kit because it doesn't just replace your factory steering stabilizer, but it adds some additional function by including these brackets. The factory stabilizer hangs really low in the front of the Jeep and if you go off-road and you're running rocks or even just come in contact with a stump, it's really easy to damage the factory stabilizer. The brackets that come in this kit will move the steering stabilizer up above the tie-rod to keep it a little bit more protected. Now a steering stabilizer in and of itself should be replaced if it's leaking or if it's broken and this kit again is good because it also relocates your steering stabilizer. What's really important to remember is that you don't have to change your steering stabilizer if you install a lift kit. In fact, a properly set-up suspension uses a steering stabilizer as a luxury and not a necessity. A stabilizer is not there to cover up a wobble, it's not there to cover up death wobble and it won't fix bump steer. Those are all issues that need to be addressed separately. If you use a steering stabilizer to try and fix those issues, all you're going to do cover them up until the new steering stabilizer blows out and your suspension issues are still there. A steering stabilizer is there when you have large tires on the Jeep and you're driving down the road to suck up some of the shock that those tires feel that would otherwise get transferred directly into the steering wheel. It is not there for any other purpose. All steering stabilizers are just 50-50 valved hydraulic shocks and the one that comes in this kit is Rough Country's Performance 2.2 Hydraulic Shock, which has a 2.2-inch body, a chrome-hardened piston and is designed to hold up pretty well to off-road abuse. Along with the steering stabilizer are the brackets and this is the part again that I really like about this kit. It moves the stabilizer from the passenger side of the Jeep below the tie-rod to the driver's side above the tie-rod, putting it in an area where it's much better protected from rocks, stumps and other off-road obstacles. Now because this steering stabilizer kit is more than just a replacement stabilizer that bolts in the OE location, there's a little bit more work to do to get this installed. However the installation is very simple, very straightforward and this kit includes all the hardware that you need to get it done. Now the first step in the installation is removing your factory steering stabilizer. Once that's out of the way, you can install this bracket that goes on the center of the axle right by the differential. After that, you'll install this other bracket that goes closer to the steering knuckle and then install the steering stabilizer itself in-between the new brackets. You will have to do some adjustment for where the brackets are located on the axle and on the tie-rod to make sure that the stabilizer can be fully extended when the steering wheel is turned in one direction and it doesn't quite fully compress when it's turned in the other direction. You may also have to turn the clamps on your drag link to make sure that they clear the steering stabilizer all the way through the steering travel. The whole installation of this steering stabilizer shouldn't take you more than two hours and you won't need any specialty tools to get it done, just the socket set. If you're buying just an OEM steering stabilizer without the brackets, I would say you should probably be spending around $50. I wouldn't want the bargain basement $20 stabilizer because I wouldn't expect the seals to last very long. I also would never spend $250 for a steering stabilizer because again it's just a 50-50 valved shock. There's no magic in there. However for this kit, because it does include these brackets that move the stabilizer up and out of the way, if you're going off-road, that's good insurance in my mind and this kit is fairly priced for everything that you get. So if you damaged your factory steering stabilizer on the trail and you don't just want to replace it and give yourself the opportunity to break it again, a kit like this which relocates the steering stabilizer up and out of the way of trail obstacles is a really good idea. Again this doesn't have any magic in it. It's not gonna fix your wobble, your death wobble, your bump steer, but if you need a replacement and you want one that keeps the steering stabilizer safe from obstacles, I really like this setup. So that's my review of the Rough Country Performance 2.2 Steering Stabilizer fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

    Sized For Upgrade. Rough Country's replacement steering stabilizer is 2.2 inches in diameter and specifically made to handle the stressed of Wranglers with two or more inches of suspension lift. It allows for better on-road and off-road handling with oversized tires while reducing the strain on your Jeep's tie rods and ball joints.

    Rugged Construction. This Steering stabilizer features a massive 41.4mm diameter piston and a 17mm chrome hardened piston rod for extreme performance. It is complete in a rugged powder coat finish made to take on the hazards of the trail.

    Warranty and Installation. This kit has everything necessary for a simple bolt on installation, including additional brackets to ensure proper function with your lift. Rough Country backs this stabilizer with a lifetime replacement warranty for complete value and security.

    Application. The Rough Country Perf. 2.2 Steering Stabilizer fits 2007-2018 Wrangler JK models with 2 or more inches of suspension lift. Will not work in conjunction with stock height Wranglers.

        I am looking into getting a steering stabilizer for my jeep, why should i get this one instead of going with a dual steering stabilizer?

        • The Rough Country Perf. 2.2 Steering Stabilizer is a very well engineered kit designed specifically for your Wrangler. Dual steering stabilizers should really be used only in extreme situations as they will put additional strain on the steering box, and can cause some clearance issues, while providing little to no benefit over a single steering stabilizer.

        I currently have dual stabilizers on my 14 jku, I am looking to go to a single. Would this kit accomplish that, or do I need something more?

        • This will allow you to convert back to a single stabilizer.

        Will this work with Steer Smarts YETI XD Top Mount Steering Linkage Kit

        I just ordered the "Rough Country 3.5 in. Suspension Lift Kit w/ Control Arm Drop Brackets" and the "Rough Country Perf. 2.2 Steering Stabilizer" for my 08 4 door JK. Are these two parts compatible with each other? they both have relocation brackets for the steering stabilizer. What kits mounting brackets should I use to make the system work properly?

        • Both kits will be compatible. We recommend the steering stabilizer bracket included with your lift kit.

        I ordered the RC dual steering stabilizer, to find out it wont fit a Terraflex HD tie rod, what makes this SS work with a Terraflex tie rod?

        • So, this item would be the Single Steering Stabilizer, so I'm going to assume that this is what you did order. Your Terraflex HD Tie rod kit should have included a Steering Stabilizer Relocation Bracket. This item would be what you need to make this fit with the Rough Country Perf. 2.2 Steering Stabilizer. If you did not get that with your kit, feel free to call our Customer Support team. If in the event that your kit does not come with that, then you would need Item J117826 which would be the Teraflex Steering Stabilizer Relocation Kit for 1-5/8 in. Tie Rod

        Upgrading to Dual? I have this steering stabilizer installed currently. I am experiencing my 13 JK 4 Door with 4" Lift and 35's responding very touchy on highways. Meaning the littlest bumps throw it around easily. A 4 wheel alignment was performed after the lift installation. I am thinking adding the 2nd shock would help improve this issue. Is there a kit available to upgrade this to dual? 1 answer

            A must for larger tires.

            I didn’t have any noticeable wobble but with 35” tires the steering felt “loose” at highway speeds. The RC stabilizer is a noticeable improvement over stock (w/20k miles on it) and the steering feels stiffer so I can drive more comfortably without the “boat steering”. I also like the relocation of the stabilizer above the axle for the occasional off-roading trip.

            Was experiencing death wobble every single time the Jeep was driven. I purchased this and the Rough Country forged adjustable front track bar, put them on and haven’t experienced any wobble or even vibration since. Would 100 recommend.

            I hear a lot of negative feedback on Rough Country, but let me just say I have their lift and now the steering stabilizer and my Jeep couldn’t be smoother. Their “N” series products are definitely a contender in the jeep world. I have no complaints. Their products come with clear instructions and have a great fit.

            Noticeable Difference Easy Install

            Did I need it? According to everything I read and experienced, apparently not. My Jeep's alignment was dialed in. 35X12.5/18 tires/wheels. Did it make a difference? Without question. How? It steers more smoothly. Straight-line or turning. Worth the money? I'd buy it again in a heart beat.
