    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.

      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.

      Tighten steering right up

      Quick and easy fix for steering vibrations from running larger tires. Tightens your steering right up. Takes around 20 minutes to replace the stock one.

      Works great.

      My old one was leaking. This works as well as the OE but not a necessary replacement unless your old one is actually bad.

      Smooth Controlled Steering

      I purchased this steering stabilizer in early May of this year and didn't have an opportunity to install it till the end of June. I'm very pleased with the performance and quality of this stabilizer on my 95 Jeep Wrangler. I only needed the 2.0; however went ahead and purchased the step up to the 2.2 since I currently run 33's and have a 3.5" suspension lift. Next year I plan to upgrade to a 6" lift and 35's and the better performance stabilizer is suitable for my potential mod upgrade. Very easy to install; had a bit of an issue removing the front bolt from the stock stabilizer; however once it came out the Rough Country Steering Stabilizer went in place very smoothly. Total install time to remove old one and install new one was about 45 minutes.

      Great!

      Was all over the road. I Knew I had more problems than this but needed help until I could afford more. Put on the stabilizer and immediately felt the difference. I later had to change out a leaky steering box and wore out track bar, but am glad I started with my stabilizer. Good price, good feel.

      No complaints

      Got my lift from rough country too . The 2.2 performance stablizer is a nice sturdy stablizer and improved my handling and steering confidence. I would recommend it if you lift your Jeep.
