    I had a Rancho DUal Stabil. witht he shocks sitting on top of each other, but the lower one hung too low. Now I run a single Superlift stabil. shock in the stock location and it works great.

    National Tire and Wheel has great prices on Superlift and many others. http://www.natltire.com

    OR go to http://www.macromotive.com and e-mail David Frank, he can hook you up!

    I use a single Rancho and works great. It's really a 5000 shock with the mounting hardware.

    The rule is a single steering stabilizer for up to 35" tires dual for larger. I got mine from http://www.summitracing.com

    Riz, My buddy has the exact same setup. 88 Jimmy, with 35's, I've driven it and it feels tight, a nice tight. It didn't feel too tight, I didn't have to struggle with the wheel at all. And that's with an aftermarket wheel with less diameter.

    It's not what you buy, it's what you build!

    Hi Riz, I've got the Pro Comp dual setup. Looks and functions very much like the Rancho duals. Installation was a no-brainer.

    Riz,
    I am running dual ProComp stabilizers and i love them! It steers alot better than having the single shock on there in the stock location. The only thing i do not like is the fact the lower shock is as low as the diff. Oh yeah the steering stabilizers are ES2000's

    Thanks guys for all the info, I appreciate it. It's also good to hear how tight it is, I also have a smaller after market steering wheel.

    Once again, thanks for the replies !

    Desert Rat Off-road was having a sale on rough country dual stabilizers last week, they may still have some left. Check out garage sales
