Though your JK or JL Jeep Wrangler will leave the factory as perfectly-capable, off-roading vehicle, there is always room for improvement. Similarly, if you are part of a Jeep club or any active off-roading community, you are going to want to do everything possible in order to separate your rig from the pack. Lifting your vehicle several inches higher off of the ground is one of the more prominent performance upgrades, which will improve your Jeep's appearance and performance at the same time.
Along with the additional ground clearance, the ability to add larger and more aggressive tires is one of the most popular reasons for increasing the 4x4's height. Once you have utilized your new lift kit however, your job is not yet finished. Before you show off your vehicle's new height to the masses, you must first invest in a new steering stabilizer. Jeep Wrangler steering stabilizers play important roles in your vehicle’s suspension and steering systems, and enable your off-roading machine to navigate through those exhilarating trails.
Similar to the way shock absorbers limit potential errant suspension movement, Wrangler steering stabilizers dampen and stabilize the lateral movement of the wheels. Jeep Wrangler steering stabilizers are present to ensure a smooth and safe ride, while reducing suspension travel and minimize the risk of any potential damage to the system.
Your factory Wrangler steering stabilizer is built to collaborate with only a certain-sized wheel & tire combination. The factory stabilizer will generally serve you well if you maintain the status quo, but if you make any suspension-related upgrades, it is imperative for you to modify your Wrangler steering stabilizer right away
Driving around with an ill-fit Jeep Wrangler stabilizer can lead to excessive vibration, even on flat surfaces, as well as either loose or choppy steering. The best way to avoid any problems on the highway and especially the trail is to swap out your stock equipment for a new Jeep Wrangler steering stabilizer as soon possible.
The term “death wobble” is one of the last things that JK Wrangler owners want to hear. This ominous phrase involves violent swinging of the front axles, which will cause the vehicle to literally wobble out of control. The easiest way to avoid death wobble or anything similar is to make sure that your steering stabilizer can handle the increased weight as a result of your aftermarket ambitions. Luckily for you, CJ’s carries a nice assortment of steering stabilizers that will take your driving experience to the next level! Be sure to note your vehicle's specific year before you purchase any Jeep Wrangler steering stabilizers from CJ’s.
