Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review of the Rough Country Performance 2.2 Steering Stabilizer, fitting all 1987 to 2006 Wranglers. Today we're gonna talk through the installation of the steering stabilizer, which is a very simple one out of three wrenches. You're gonna be able to get this installed in about an hour in your driveway, and this will bolt directly in place of your factory steering stabilizer. We're also going to talk about the construction and a few of the features of the stabilizer. This steering stabilizer is for those of you who have a bent, broken or leaking steering stabilizer and wanna replace it with a factory style one. Now, if you have a properly set up suspension, a steering stabilizer is a luxury and not a necessity. That is to say, if you have big tires on your Jeep you have a lift, there's no need to upgrade or otherwise change your steering stabilizer. The only time you need to swap this out is if it's broken, bent or leaking. If you do have a wobble, a death wobble, if you have bump steer, if you have any of those other issues with your suspension on your Jeep, there are ways to diagnose and fix those problems, and a steering stabilizer is not one of them. If you do get a new steering stabilizer, sometimes it will cover up a wobble for a short period of time, but you're just going to end up blowing up your new steering stabilizer and still having the same issue. So fix any root issues, then purchase a new steering stabilizer if yours is broken, but this is not to be used as a band aid for a poorly put together or poorly performing suspension system. So, that being said, I think this is an appropriately priced quality steering stabilizer that will work for what most of us need it to do which is just to replace that old steering stabilizer. As far as construction goes all a steering stabilizer is, is a 50:50 valve hydraulic shock. Now, there are some nitrogen charged steering stabilizers, but I would stay away from those because they can actually push the Jeep in one direction or another, almost making it feel like you have a poor alignment. So that's all that this is, it's a hydraulic shock, it's 50:50 valves designed to bolt directly in place of your factory steering stabilizer. And when you do hit a bump, it will help to suck up a little bit of that feel that you might otherwise get transferred through the steering linkage and up into the steering wheel that you would then feel in your hands. This comes with all the hardware that you need to get it installed and overall, it is going to be a great option for what most of us need on their jeep. So getting back to the installation, this is going to be a very simple one out of three wrench install and you are going to be able to get this done in under an hour, in your driveway with traditional hand tools. All you're going to need to do is, unbolt your factory steering stabilizer and bolt this one into place. That's really all there is to it. This does come with some new hardware so, if your old hardware is rusty, you can replace it. And if you do have some rust as always, it makes sense to spray those bolts with a good penetrating oil, before you get started. But all in all, a very very simple swap. You gonna be able to get this done with those traditional hand tools again, in under an hour. There are steering stabilizers out there on the market that cost three times as much as this one does. And in my opinion, there's absolutely no reason to spend that much money. I also wouldn't get a steering stabilizer that only cost $15, because the seals aren't going to be quality, and it'll start leaking on you. But I think it's a steering stabilizer that's priced right around where this one is, right around the $50 mark, is going to hold up well, it's going to perform its job, and it's not going to be overpriced. I think that this is again, a very nice option for what most of us are using their Jeeps for. So if you have a broken, bent, or otherwise leaking steering stabilizer that you're looking to replace with an OE Style Steering Stabilizer, this is going to be a great option that's appropriately priced and easy to install. So that's my review of the Rough Country Performance 2.2 Steering Stabilizer, fitting all 1987 to 2006 Wranglers, that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

    2.2 steering stabilizer

    I have about 7yrs on the old stabilizer, same 2.2. I was developing a little shake when I came off of 65mph. Everything else has been replaced in the front end when I found a tie rod worn. Now all good-n-tight. No shake!

    Works Great to Fix Steering

    Had a death wobble incident and went through all the front end suspension, found my track bar had serious play and replaced that. Everything else looked good but I noticed my steering stabilizer was the stock, original one. Upgraded to this stabilizer and felt an immediate difference! The Jeep used to steer past where I wanted it, pulling into parking places and such, and I'd have to correct. Now, it goes exactly where I mean it to. And it seems much more stable in corners as well. Great product!

    Wrong product

    Apparently extremeterrain no longer carries them anymore. I ordered this product twice thinking I was getting shipped the wrong item. After some internal research by the customer service department, it was found that the RC N3 is the upgrade of this product which is a complete junk. It makes the steering wonder at highway speeds.

    Good Product

    Big heavy duty shock... unfortunately, it came in damaged. Box had no damage - so it was handled correctly. To me, it looks like it left the warehouse damaged. Sad!

    Steering Stabilizer

    Install took longer than all other reviews because of difficulty with rusted bolts. Product is far superior to factory stabilizer and noticed immediate difference when driving.
