    What is the best side-by-side dual stabilizer setup? I don't want the stacked type, because I don't want to lose any ground clearance.

    I have been driving it on the road without any stabilizers installed to make sure that the axle is solid. I didn't want the stabilizer(s) hiding any problems, vibrations, etc. Now that its been a few weeks, the ride is solid, but its too hard to drive a straight line. Every little bump in the road pulls the truck in one direction and the next, and stopping / accelerating leaves the truck pulling to the left and the right.

    I have a D60, and will have a ROCKROD too... suggestions?

    Thanks again all...

    Does anyone else smell BFGs burning???

    The only problem I see with the those is that they sit in front of the tie rod.I guess it depends what kind of wheelin ya do .I just installed a rancho stabilizer in the stock location so its between my rock rod and the axle.Mine looks like Steves <a target="_blank" href=http://www.coloradok5.com/rockrod.shtml>http://www.coloradok5.com/rockrod.shtml</a>

    My D60 does not have the factory stabilizer "perch" welded to the axle. What to do then? My axle is from a Ford F350...

    I've got the 4Way coilover and love it - It totally stops road imperfections from pulling/pushing my rig, and is well protected by the tie rod too. pugsley.alloffroad.com

    I would love to see the pic, but the link does not work... Coil over stabilizer? That sounds interesting...

    There is a bracket from Rancho that can take the place of that bracket if you dont have one on the axle.
