    I just had high steer installed on my jeep and am looking for a steering stabilizer setup.
    I love the look of the new taraflex one but my rods are the six sides kind not round. Any ideas?

    I would first suggest driving without the stabilizer installed. To see just how good your suspension works.

    3 inch zone lift. Fox 2.0 shocks. 35 inch nitto ridge grapplers. Bushwacker flat fenders. No name steel bumpers front and back for now.
    Do you have a lift installed with oversized tires?? If so I would still install some type of stabilizer... be it a single shock or duals. They will make all the difference in ride/steering comfort. Unless your suspension is absolutely perfect in all aspects and it steers true at all speeds highway and offroad so to speak. I personally think that steering stabilizers add to the overall comfort of driving be it daily driver or purely off road rig. I installed duals on my rig and I'll never have another solid front axle vehicle without them

    I agree. A nice stabilizer cant hurt. My question is who makes one for the high steer kit I put on?

    I found the steering stabilizer worked pretty good at stopping the death wobble.

    Otherwise it was a “take it or leave it” with me. Came with a lift kit I bought.
