What is a Steering Stabilizer?

The purpose of a steering stabilizer is to tame the action of trucks and SUVs with oversized tires. When you equip your ride with larger tires, you may become a victim of death wobble. But, a steering stabilizer ends the common vibration problem that larger tires may cause, thereby smoothing out your ride.

The Different Types of Stabilizers

When it comes time to choose a steering stabilizer, you want to choose from the best names in the suspension parts industry — brands with years of experience designing some of the best steering stabilizers on the market. Take a look at Rancho, for example. Their steering stabilizer utilizes RS5000 truck shocks in a horizontal design for outstanding street and off-road performance. And, it dramatically improves handling ease, reducing steering arm fatigue.

Another popular steering stabilizer is the Skyjacker Hydro 7000 Steering Stabilizer. Custom-crafted for your truck or SUV, this steering stabilizer dampens the harshness of both on- and off-road driving with performance shocks for your steering system.
