Re: Steering Stabilizer and Shocks

The bilstien 5100's are good for shocks. I had a set of dual rough country stabalizers on my old 02 and it worked well but didnt like road salt.

Fabtech Dirt Logic....If you don't wanna spend 200 a shock then ya Bilsteins are the way to go...Just make sure when you get them you specify its lifted 2" cause it makes a difference

Re: Steering Stabilizer and Shocks

Dont know if they make em for only 2" over stock, but my vote is for DR signatures. They are valved specifically for superduty. They are what I run, and I am really pleased with em. They clearcoat makes keeping them shiny easy.

for stabilizers....I run bilstein 5100s on a dual Skyjacker bracket setup.

Re: Steering Stabilizer and Shocks

Works fine in a dual setup. They arent pointed the same direction. One points to right knuckle, one to the left. I've been running this setup for a couple years.
