    I'm putting 35's on soon, so I need to know if it would help out to get a new one or a dual setup. Its on a 10 bolt axle, about 90% pavement driving, wheeling on the weekends.

    Stick with what ya got now. then when you put the 35"s on drive around for a day or so and if it doesnt feel safe then either get a new shock for the single setup (if the one ya got now is worn out) or get a dual setup.. If you dont need a stabilizer i wouldnt run one. i like it a lot better without one.

    You should be fine with a single one. Some people like the look of the duals though.

    i had really bad DW /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif The dual steering dampers fixed it great. but when one of them broke at the weld i could really feel the difference with it gone.. i'am going hydro ram cause i hate the dampers,(easy to damage and looks dumb. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif.)
