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.

    rough country steering stabalizer

    The unit was easier to put on than the old was to remove, due to it being improperly installed. This explained some of my problems. After instillation, there was a significant difference in the wobble I was trying to relieve. I still need to replace sway bar links, whose rubber bushing have eroded, but the stabilizer alone is making my jeep safe to drive until then. I would recommend this stabilizer to anyone.

    Unit arrived in a few days and installed in about an hour. Other then figuring out how to remove stock stabilizer, installation was a breeze. It has helped tremendously with the Death Wobble. The Juice is definitely worth the squeeze

    Very nice product

    I was skeptical buying rough country since my last jeeps suspension wasnt that impressive..but my skyjacker is much smoother...i went with this cos it was the largest diameter one they offered...i have 33s and a 4inch lift..WOW did this make such a difference going down the road..so much less wobble and bounce side to side if a wind blows or theres a bump. ONLY con is it has no boot which i should have thought of prior to buying.

    Great replacement of OEM

    So far I'm pleased. I haven't really put it o the test of off-road abuse yet but it does work well. Ease of replacement was very good. This replaced the OEM stabilizer of 15 years. Would have given it an excellent overall rating but there was no dust boot. While not always necessary it would have been a plus.

    No death wobble here!

    It takes a few minutes to get everything in the right place, but it is worth it. This steering stabilizer from Rough country really helps smooth out the steering on a lifted jeep.

    Great HD Stabilizer

    I was having terrible issues with steering issues that were similar to the dreaded Death Wobble. After having the tires balanced twice by two different shops with no results, I replaced this stabilizer and all my steering issues vanished. This stabilizer provides a tight feel all throughout the front end and gives great control and feedback through the steering wheel. Its most certainly tighter than the old one (even before the old one was officially shot) and the vehicle tracks straight even on the roughest roads. When this one stops working, I will most certainly be buying another from Rough Country. There were 113000 on the original stabilizer so it was definitely time for a new one. The stabilizer is much larger than the other stock OE part and I couldn’t imagine why anyone would choose to replace a worn out stabilizer with another stock one. If you need a new stabilizer or are experiencing Death Wobble symptoms, this is your best option.

    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.

    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.
