1. Steering stabilizer

    Trying to get some input on a steering stabilizer. Got a 84 cj with 35's and a 350 if that matters. Thanks for your time

    Anything will do. A properly setup rig can run just fine without one, but they do serve well to make steering components last longer.

    Yea it does fine just thought it would make it tighter feeling

    Not that there is a lot of slop in it either.

    It shouldn't wander any without a steering stabilizer. If it does, something is worn out or adjusted improperly.

    Well I it's mostly when I'm changing lanes not so much just cruising in the same lane and I never had 35's till now always ran 33's so maybe it's just me. But I'm going to go have it checked out and see if there is something wrong. But like you said ill still put one one to preserve parts as long as possible.

    A steering box brace will help too.

    This is what I got it to. It's pretty smooth. Or do I got to take more off? The bearing itself came out in one peace but the hardware were in shambles.

    Glad you caught it before it got even worse. Did you service the other side as well?

    I did figured if doing one side might as well do both.
