    Ok, i finally got my burb lifted, 89 sub 6" pro comp, 35" all terrains. and love it. ill post some pics in a few days.

    But it steers like shiz, and has a lot of play in front end going over bumps and shiz, my buddies said i should get some good steering stabilizers cuz im just running the oem one still. what are you guys thoughts on them? dual better, or just a single adiqute? im working on my 3/4 ton axles and eventually plan to go to 39.5" tires and more lift so what ever i get will support that as well?

    Did you use a raised steering arm when you did the lift? Cost is about $55 and worth every penny. Answer that first.........

    I did the same lift, 6" Tuff Country, and have no steering issues or bump steer, and only run one stabilizer. You should not need duals with only 35" tires.

    do some adjusting on the draglink. wen i lifted mine i had to screw with the draglink for a while cuz it would turn 3.5 turns to the right but only like .5 to the right.
