    I have this rusty old steeering stabilizer on my rig and was thinking of replacing it and I see alot of options available- The Rock Ram, coil over stabilizers, dual stabilizers.
    With 35" tires what is my best option?

    I'm no front end guru and have no clue which is best for me... I did some searches and didnt find anything with a 35" tire application...all were 39+

    any feedback or Criticism is much apreciated as usual

    I currently am running the factory stabilizer with 35" tires and have no problems. I am getting ready to install my D60 and crossover and will eventually add the rock ram assist steering (best steering damper available).

    Scott,

    why not use the WTOR kit? it is half the price and half the problems from what i hear.

    you have some inside info you are holding out on us? /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Zakk, actually I plan on buying my ram from WTO but I already have all the crossover stuff I bought from ORD. I am having issues with the gear box not having all the fancy parts on it like I have seen on the others (nothing against ORD, all they did was sell me the box. ORD did not build the box AGR did). I almost feel like I got ripped off by paying so much money for a gear box that is nothing special other than being ram assist ready. I know that I could have spent half the money on the gear box from WTO but it is now a past tense and nothing to cry over now, whats done is done.

    I think if your steering is in good shape and the truck is well aligned you shouldn't need more than a single stabilizer for that size tire. I bought a pro-comp for about $30 and it works fine for me.

    For 35's the single should be fine. I had to go to a dual when I went to 39.5's.
