Steering stablizer

Post by Easttnrhino » Sun Jul 08, 2018 10:52 am

I know this has been talked about many times I just did a search of the forum. It was hard to get a answer. I have a 2017 PW on 37" nitto ridge grapplers with about 17,000 miles on truck. I have a slight shake in steering wheel when I roate tires (when that tire is in back no shake) looking a better stabilizer to cover it and reduce front end parts wear. I have the tires balanced better than have ever been. I have read good about thuren stabilzer but also bad, mostly good that is the one I keep coming back to. Any other options, I saw DOR fox stabilizer and all the dual kits, varing brands. Any help or past experiences. Thanks

Steering stabilizers only mute road feedback through the steering. Any balance, geometry, or wear related vibration coming through the steering will still be present after you change to a new stabilizer.

If you know that your vibration is coming from one or two of your tires, I’d stop rotating them.

If you were going to pick up a steering damper st some point, I’d do the Thuren King. I’ve never heard a single bad comment outside of the tiny amount of steering push it has to the right. It’s a very good damper and I have yet to see an option at the same level available for these trucks. A damper will probably not solve your steering feel of it is for sure due to a bad tire.
