Review & Installation Video

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.

Specs. The Teraflex Steering Stabilizer is built with a sturdy 5/8 inch hardened, chrome plated shaft. With a large seal and stiff valving, strain is reduced on the steering mechanism. The result? You can reduce bumper and front end wobble.

Construction. This part is designed specifically to be used with Teraflex's heavy duty tie rod set up, as well as other stock tie rod configurations. It's 24 inches long and includes everything you need for installation. This stabilizer comes with all hardware, a steering damper, and a mounting stud bracket. The manufacturer backs up this product with a limited warranty.

Application. Works with 1987-2018 Wrangler TJ, YJ, and YK models.

I have a 2017 Wrangler JK with a MOPAR 2 inch lift and 35s. Would I notice a substantial difference with this item in steering? If not, is there another steering stabilizer that would make me feel a big difference?

ConnorS

  • 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.

I'm looking at putting the Teraflex Leveling Kit w/o Shocks (07-17 Wrangler JK) on my Jeep. Is this is a necessary part (Teraflex Steering Stabilizer ) for this leveling kit? When on the leveling kit page, it had this part as a buy together option so I'm thinking this might be needed. Thank you.

DonnaM

  • 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.

    Just recently installed this Steering Stabilizer on my JKU when I lifted it to replace my old Skyjacker one. Noticed a big difference in ride quality especially going over dips or bumps. Teraflex has made a top notch item here for the price. Some WD40 will make the install slide right into the bracket easier.

    Great for the price!

    After lifting my jeep 2.5", my steering seemed to be out of whack. I decided to purchase this because it isn't too pricey, so if it didn't work I wouldn't be out on a lot of money. needless to say I made the right decision, the stabilizer really smoothed out the ride on my rig.

    easy to install

    After putting a lift on my jeep I started to notice signs of the death wobble. I put this on in about 30 minutes. It might have gone faster but didn't have an 18mm wrench. Make sure you have 18 mm wrench and socket. It seems to have solved my problem so far.

    I love the shaft cover on Teraflex dust cover. It only took 15 min to install. The instructions were very easy to understand. I love these so much I am going to get matching shocks. The only thing I would change about these is move the sticker to the dust cover.

    Very unhappy with the loss of turning radius

    To be honest I'm not quite sure, I brought this part to my mechanic and had him install it. It's listed on the website as 24" but it's actually 19 1/8. When I went to pick my jeep up the mechanic stressed to me the he wasn't happy since it was shorter he had to adjust the steering stops to keep the shock from bottoming out. Now my turning is horrible what u use to do in 1 full crank of the wheel I now need to make 3 or 4 point turns. Other reviews I read had no info on a loss of turning so I'm not quite sure u I do

    Good product

    It's a beefier version of my stock stabilizer. Haven't really noticed a major difference in steering but it does seem a little tighter than what it used to be. Install was super easy had to adjust my bracket so I wouldn't bottom out but it was easy ecspecially for us that are not mechanically inclined.
