Steering Stabilizer Options

Looking for options for a dual steering stabilizer set-up for a 2015 3500 with no lift. Everything i've been coming up with requires at least 2.5" of lift. I did find some options for a factory replacement single stabilizer, but was looking for dual.

Thanks in advance.

Why dual ? Just upgraded the factory stabilizer with a good IFP steering stabilizer from Thuren or Carli.

I have tried both Bilstein 5100 monotube, and Rancho 7000MT with great luck and way more performance over stock. I've also tried the ProComp's and they suck.

I did end up upgrading to dual just to take a little shimmy out of the front end when towing heavy stuff. I called Rancho, and ordered just their two brackets. I was a little disappointed with having to drill a couple holes bigger, but they were pretty cheap and work great.

I never said they were, and I like that you can mount an IFP in any orientation, but a monotube works just fine in this application. Also, I'd never run Fox shocks on a DD again, even though I get a pretty hefty discount on them and have tried to make them work. They last about a year before they start pitting and I got sick of changing them...

They are very impressive for a cheaper race solution though.

What is making you want to upgrade? Just curious as we basically have the same truck.

Carli or Thuren is probably the way to go, like Howling said, I've never heard anyone who runs their stuff have a bad thing to say about it or them.

I hear good stuff about Synergy's stuff also and it's a good bit cheaper than Carli and Thuren's options:

https://www.synergymfg.com/synergy-t...tegory_id=4060

https://www.synergymfg.com/fox-2-0-s...tegory_id=4060

I'd run Carli or Thuren's stuff though if money's not a big concern.

Slightly unrelated: Carli actually updated their website! Surely this a portent of the apocalypse.

They also have a brief write up on steering stabilizers: https://carlisuspension.com/what-is-...ng-stabilizer/

Well... my truck has started the death wobble. And by death wobble, i'm not talkin a little shimmy. Mofo turns violent and the only way to get it to stop is to slow down to about 15-20 mph. Only after hitting a bump when turning slightly left and rarely ever when i'm towing. I checked everything on the front end. Ball joints, wheel bearing, track bar, radius arms, the works. Everything else is still okay. I'm guessing it still has the factory steering stabilizer and with 204k on the clock, there's a good chance it's whooped.Rotated front tires Monday night and the precursor to a death wobble was there almost immediately after getting up to 60-65mph. The tires werent cupped real bad,but they had 20k miles on them (i suck at rotating). So with everything being said, I wanted to upgrade to something different for a stabilzer. It's main job is to haul a rocket donkey around so I cant have death wobble while towing a 15k pound trailer.

This is fantastic. Thanks for posting the link. I need to spend more time on their website. Feeling a little indifferent about my 5100 steering shock after reading that.

I was in the same boat recently. I threw on a new track bar, gear box, bushings everywhere, and a steering brace. In the end, I tightened everything up and tossed a new steering stabilizer on the front. Haven't had an issue since.

I still recommend the Rancho 7000MT steering stabilizer based on my experiences, their warranty, and the fact that they're an OEM supplier, so they have to meet OEM quality.
