    I installed the rough country duel steering stabilizer on my burb.I'm not impressed.Is there any way to "tighten" the steering feel??It just seems to loose to me.I think my old single monroe was tighter than this setup.I haven't called rough country yet.

    Steering stabilzers are just band-aids for other problems... /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif...how old are your suspension/steering components? Do you have a steering brace?
