    My steering seems to wander somewhat. I have 35's with a 4" lift. I have dual steering stabilizers. What can I do to stiffin it up.

    Do you have the steering box brace kit? If not, it should tighten it up a bit. It's not very expensive.

    Jason,

    Go to Main Index and then look for aftermarket products. There you will find a great place to spend money... Off Road Design. The steering brace that muddin mentioned will help correct frame flex that is an inherent problem on the K-5. If you run the tires and lift you will subject yourself to a cracked frame. If you already have a crack ... use the search button to check out where this occurs ... near the box. If cracked ORD makes a brace kit for cracked frames.

    Good luck!

    PS if not cracked get the brace, but you may have something else loose in there!
