Which dual steering stabilizer?

I am looking into getting a dual steering stabilizer kit for my 2003 F250 running 285/65/20. I am looking between the Skyjacker kit and the Top Gun Custom kit w/ Bilsteins. I just want to make sure the extra money is justifiable between the two kits. My stock one is bent, so I know anything will be better. Thanks

Re: Which dual steering stabilizer?

The Top Gun Customz kit is a pretty quality kit. I'd personally go with that between your 2 options. I'm running the ProComp set up with Fox stabilizers at the moment. No complaints here.

I like the dual opposing gas charged Bilsteins on mine and top gun brackets are made well

Re: Which dual steering stabilizer?

Do I need to go dual, does it make that big of a difference? Or would just a single Bilstein be sufficient?

Re: Which dual steering stabilizer?

I think youd be fine with a single with that size tire. 35's or larger I recommend the duels.

Those tires are 34.7", but I never plan to go bigger than that.

Like I said 35's or larger. you'll be just fine with a single. Alot of people go with a dual for the look.

Re: Which dual steering stabilizer?

And is it not a good idea to use just a single gas charged Bilstein?
