    I was talking to a buddy I work with (He is into 1st generation Broncos) I'm wanting to go to crossover steering, and I know I need to loose the front stabilizer bar. Would dual shocks stiffen the front end up to take the place of the stabilizer bar?

    sway bar? dual shocks might help, but it wont replace it. if you've got lift springs, they might be stiff enough to get by without. alot of guys here w/ 6" springs run without em. i personally like mine hooked up.

    I haven't had a sway bar in the past year and have not noticed any major issues. Make sure everything is tight in the front end and get a new steering stab if need be. This should keep the front end pretty stable.

    A lot of us don't use them anymore and can't even tell.
    If it's a DD then you might want to keep it.
