    I have 38 X 15.50 that really meassure 37 X 14.50. Should I be using two stabilzers or is one good enough. And if its two what are the best ones to go with? I dont like the rancho setup because they are on top of each other which cause them to sit bellow the tie rod and im affraid it will just get all smashed up. What do you all think?

    I think if your frontend is aligned and the joints are in good shape you shouldn't need more then one. I run a single which is about 100 years old with 37X13X15 boggers and I don't have any problems.

    I think that 2 is really just for show. I thought that I need 2 at one time but after I put it on, I didn't notice much of a difference.

    If you need 2 you are just covering up the problem. I havent even run one in years. :D

    Yeah all my ball joints are new so I'm assuming 1 should be able to handle the 37" TSL's.

    Thanks

    Agree. If you feel you need 2 stabilizers, you need to find out why it is unstable to begin with. Don't just do it, It may hide a small problem from you untill it turns into a big, serious, costly, could-kill-somebody-on-the-road kind of problem.
