    Was a raised steering arm installed?

    Yes the steering arm was replaced with a new one. Was wondering if a stabilizer would correct the problem or not????

    Take it back to the shop and have them check there work. You should get a little more body roll after the lift but the steering shouldn't change if you added the steering arm. It sounds like something isn't tight. If you haven't changed the tires at the same time a stablizer shock souldn't go bad after a lift.

    Well, on my '89, I kinda did a # on the stabilizer once and made it a 2-piece model. And let me tell you, that sumbitch was holy hell to try to keep in a straight line. I was busier then a 1 legged man in a ass-kicking contest. And you don't wanna begin to imagine what it was like when it was windy outside.....
    So I guess I'm trying to say, "Yeah, a stabilizer should help that out some. That is, if all your steering was correctly adjusted when the lift happened.."

    I did change the tires as well. I went from the stock rim and 31x10.5x15 to a 33x12.5x15 and a 15x10 rim. The guy at the shop said its gonna do that cause I changed tire sizes. Said I need a stabilizer so I guess we'll see. Thanks, Mike....
