Ryan: This SuperLift Superide SS by Bilstein High Clearance Dual Steering Stabilizer Kit is for those of you that have a 2007 to 2018 JK that has 1 1/2 inches of lift or more and is looking for a dual steering stabilizer setup. This is going to install pretty easily onto your Jeep. I'm gonna give it a one out of three wrenches, and we're gonna show you exactly how to get it done in just a second. Now, whenever we're talking about steering stabilizers or, more accurately, steering dampeners, it's very important to know what they do, what they don't do, and why you may want to upgrade yours or change yours from the factory one. Now, just because you have a lift kit and big tires on your Jeep does not mean that you need to change out your steering stabilizer. You don't need a much more expensive one, you don't need a bigger one, you don't need a double one, just because you have a lift kit. In fact, a steering stabilizer or steering dampener is a luxury and not a necessity. If you have a properly set up steering system, this is not something that you need to make sure you don't have any sort of weird wobbles or bump steer, or any of that stuff. If you have bump steer, if you have a wobble, if you have death wobble, those are all issues that are fairly easy to diagnose the cause of, and fairly easy to fix. Just throwing a steering stabilizer on there or a double steering stabilizer, in this case, may cover up that issue for a period of time and make it feel like it's fixed. But ultimately, the root of the issue is still there, and you're just gonna end up blowing up your new steering stabilizer and still having the problems. If you have those issues, diagnose them, fix them, and then if you want to upgrade or change out your steering stabilizer, you can go ahead and do that.Now, in general, a steering stabilizer is just a 50/50 valved hydraulic shock. There's not a lot to it, and that's why the ones that are $30, $40, $50 are usually more than good enough. They're going to be an OEM, an OEM-style replacement, and they're going to be fine. Again, even if you have 6 inches of lift and are running 37s, you could probably get away with something like that. The point being that just because you have a lift and big tires doesn't mean you need to change from the factory. If you do change from the factory one or an OEM-style one, I usually don't recommend a nitrogen-charged shock like these ones are. And the reason for that is that the steering is then constantly being pushed one way by the nitrogen charge. Now, because this is a dual steering stabilizer setup, the two shocks are opposing each other so you don't necessarily have that sort of wander to one side that you would have otherwise. So that's a benefit to this being dual versus being single. Now, this is going to cause your steering to feel very, very tight because you have two nitrogen-charged steering stabilizers facing each other. No matter which way you're turning the steering wheel, you're not just fighting the normal resistance of your steering, but you're also fighting against these two shocks. And these can actually cause some additional wear and tear in your steering system. So if you really want to run this system, we have it available to you, you certainly can. But again, it's not gonna be necessary for the way that the vast majority of you are using your Jeeps. And if you are looking to upgrade, a system like this can put a lot more stress on your steering components. So do keep that in mind. Now, because this is a pair of Bilstein shocks, this is gonna be a more expensive kit than some of the other ones out there. Again, if you have the budget for it, if this is what you're looking for, we have it available to you. As for the build quality of this kit, I do think it's pretty high-quality. You have some very beefy brackets here. This bracket is very, very strong. The one that actually goes onto the axle, very, very strong, very well-built, welded up. It's all a zinc-coated material, so you shouldn't have any rusting issues. Of course, these are Bilstein shocks, which are known to be a high-quality shock, high-build-quality shock, something that's going to last a good long time, that's not going to start leaking on you or blow out. You're gonna have a nice high-quality bushing here that's gonna hold up for a good long time. So the build quality of the kit itself is there.As I mentioned before, this is gonna be a little bit pricey because it has the Bilstein name, because it is well-built. It's going to be a little more expensive than some of the other kits out there. The fact that it includes two shocks instead of just one stabilizer, all these things drive the cost up a little bit. This is going to come in at right around $300, and that is a lot of money. For about a 10th of the cost, you can get an OEM-style replacement steering stabilizer that is going to be more than good enough for 99.9% of you. But if you do want to upgrade to this kit, it is gonna be available to you, and you are getting some pretty high-quality components for the price. Now, somebody from the install team will show you how to get this installed. Man: The first thing you're gonna wanna do is remove your steering stabilizer. To do that, you're gonna remove the nut and bolt on each end of the stabilizer. Once you have your steering stabilizer removed, you're gonna go ahead and remove your steering stabilizer bracket located on the tie rod. Once you have it slid down to your end links, you're gonna go ahead and take a pair of pliers, Vise-Grips, or a pair of pry bars and slightly pry the bracket apart to get it off. Now, we're ready to install our center axle bracket. To do that, you're gonna use the provided U-bolts as well as the provided nuts to secure the bracket to the axle. Once you have your center axle bracket installed, you're gonna go ahead and tighten it down just enough so you can still move the bracket up and down. Now that we have our center axle bracket installed, we're gonna go ahead and install our tie rod bracket. To do that, you're gonna use the supplied U-bolts as well as the supplied nuts to attach it to the tie rod. Now, before you put your stabilizer bracket on, you want to go ahead and put the stud through the bracket. This is what your stabilizer will mount to. Once you have your one tie rod bracket installed, you're gonna go ahead and do the same process on the other side. Now, these brackets are directional, so you wanna make sure you have the hole to the outside of the vehicle. Once you have both your tie rod brackets on, go ahead and tighten them up just enough so you can still wiggle them. Once you have your tie rod brackets snug, you're gonna go ahead and take your stabilizer and attach it to the center bracket. You're gonna repeat this process on the other side. Once you have both of your stabilizers attached to the center bracket, you're gonna go ahead and snug them up. Now, before you attach your stabilizer to the bracket, you're gonna wanna turn your wheels full-lock each way. So as you can see, our stabilizer does not line up perfectly with the bracket. Now, to correct that, you're just gonna slightly shift the bracket over. This is why we left it loose. Now, once you have your bracket and stud lined up with your stabilizer, you're gonna go ahead and place it on top. Once you have your stabilizer on the stud, you're gonna go ahead and use the provided washer and nut and tighten it down. Once you have your stabilizer tight to the bracket, you're gonna go ahead and tighten up the bracket to the tie rod. So as you can see, I was way off with my bracket placement. I'm gonna go ahead and move it over to the proper location and then tighten it down. Once you have your stabilizers attached to the tie rod, you're gonna go back and fully tighten your center axle bracket. Now that we have everything tightened up, we're gonna go ahead and make sure we can turn our steering wheel both ways without bottoming out the shocks. Now that we've confirmed we have full range of motion, you're gonna refer to the installation manual for the torque specs on all of the hardware. Now that we have everything tightened up, that wraps up our installation and review. You can check out more at extremeterrain.com.

Great product! Took care of shake and wobble when hitting potholes and dips in the road looks great too! Great value for the money, only took an hour to install and that was only because we had to break off a bolt on the old part.Helpful (1)
