I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com and this is my review of the Teraflex Steering Stabilizer fitting all 1987 to 2016 Wranglers. You should be replacing your steering stabilizer if the one you have is leaking or if it's bent, and those are really the only reasons. There's a lot of misinformation out there that you need to change your steering stabilizer when you have a lift kit, or that you'll have a wobble or an issue if you don't have a good steering stabilizer. All of that is false.A new steering stabilizer will not fix a wobble, especially a death wobble. All it may do is cover it up temporarily until your new steering stabilizer breaks and you still have the same problem. If you have a wobble, do a drive steering test, find the issue, and fix that. This will not solve that problem. A steering stabilizer's only job is to soak up some of the shock that you feel when you're driving on a road and you hit a bump, so that you don't get all of that feedback through the steering wheel. Nothing more and nothing less.All steering stabilizers are just 50/50 valve hydraulic shocks, and in my opinion, there's really no reason to spend hundreds of dollars on one. Get a steering stabilizer from a good company, like Teraflex, for instance, that's going to stand behind their product, and something that's OE quality. You don't need to go overboard with this product.Like I said, there isn't too much to these. It's really just a 50/50 valve shock. This one from Teraflex is a five-eighths inch chrome-plated steel shaft, which is going to be pretty strong, and the total travel is about 24 inches, which is what you would expect from an OE steering stabilizer. No matter what size lift you had, you're not going to need more or less travel, and this is going to work on any Jeep. This includes the hardware that you need to get it installed on any Wrangler, from YJ all the way up through JK.Getting this stabilizer installed in your Jeep is really straightforward. It's actually just two bolts. Because this is designed to work on any Wrangler from 1987 all the way up through the most current JK, you will have a little bit of extra hardware left over when you're finished, but don't be alarmed about that. If you're somebody who's replacing your stabilizer because yours was bent or damaged on the rocks off road, this is a really good opportunity to install a steering stabilizer relocation kit, which will just move the stabilizer up and out of the way of the rocks in the future. Either way the installation shouldn't take you more than an hour and you won't need any specialty tools, just some sockets and open-ended wrenches.This stabilizer costs exactly what I think a steering stabilizer should cost. Again, you can get steering stabilizers that cost $100, $200, $300, but I just don't see a reason to. They're all just a 50/50 valve shock. You could also get the bargain basement $12 steering stabilizer somewhere, I'm sure, and I wouldn't recommend that because chances are the seals are going to leak right away. With this, you know you're getting a high quality product that the company stands behind, it's going to last a long time, and I think it's priced really fairly for what it is.Like I said before and I cannot stress this enough, a steering stabilizer or a steering dampener is not a miracle cure. This is not going to fix your wobble and certainly not going to fix your death wobble, all it's going to do is cover it up for a little while. So if you're having suspension issues, this is not the product for you. However, if you're somebody who has a bent, broken or leaking steering stabilizer either because it's just worn out or because you damaged it on the trail, this is a high quality, well-priced replacement. So that's my review of the Teraflex Steering Stabilizer fitting all 1987 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

Great replacement for stock stabilizer
Easy to replace and fits perfectly on my 2005 TJ. Install time was less than 20 minutes.Helpful (1)
I have a 2004 TJ and the hardware supplied does not fit. I noticed in the comments section several others had the same issue. Does ET or Teraflex have a solution? I’d like to use new hardware with my new stabilizer. Thanks!
This is an issue from Teraflex and at this time no further solutions have been made that we are aware of.
Do I have to jack up the Jeep in order to install or can I install while Jeep is on ground?
This can be installed with the jeep on the ground.
Will this work on 37's with a 7.5 inch lift?
The Teraflex Steering Stabilizer will be compatible with 37s and a 7.5" lift, if your current steering set up allows for a standard steering stabilizer.
Will this fit a 09 rhd jk?
Yes, this can be used on the RHD JK.
Is this a pair or just one shock?
This will be a great upgrade for your Jeep.
The Teraflex Steering Stabilizer does include hardware for install.
The Teraflex Steering Stabilizer should not require any adjustment to the inner bracket or steering stops.
Thank you for your question! This will require the use of a 19mm socket and 15mm socket for installation.
Thank you for your question. The factory Jeep steering stabilizer should be able to handle up to 35s with no problem. The Teraflex Steering Stabilizer is a great upgrade though! If you are having issues with your steering I would suggest reach out to us or a shop for troubleshooting, our contact information can be found here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/contact.html.
Thank you for your question! The Teraflex Steering Stabilizer is a great upgrade to your stock setup if your OE steering stabilizer is old and leaking. It is not necessary for install with the leveling kit though.
