Jeep owners - steering stabilizer - tough to replace? - November 10, 2008, 10:27 AM

Rather than spending $300+ at the stealership for them to replace a weak steering stabilizer, I bought a Skyjacker online and am planning on doing the repair myself. Looking at the Jeep, it's a cotter pin and 2 bolts. Maybe an hours worth of work, at the most.

Anything I should look out for?

Also you might try driving without the shock. I ran a dual setup until one real bad mud hole. Found out that the steering shocks were covering up a front end problem that could only be fixed with a custom setup. Did the custom setup and never ran steering shocks ever again. Just a thought. Also this was on a Dodge Ramcharger. Had a jeep once. Ran 32's on it with no steering mods.

Its easy if the bolts aren't rusted at all. Otherwise you might need an impact wrench.

Bolts do not appear to be rusted at all. I'll probably still him 'em with some WD-40 and try not to bust any knuckles.

Thanks guys.


Edit - And there's my .NET milestone.......1,000 posts bitches!!!

My XJ with 33s sucks without it. The one that's on there is worn out bad.


Having said that...I haven't driven it in a year, and haven't driven it with a decent stabilizer.

Anyone want a project XJ???? $900 takes it!


Right up the 1 hole.

I'll take some on my phone tonight and shoot them to you. Digi cam is acting up. (Falling off the hood of a 55mph vehicle will do that)
