Internet wisdom says a steering stabilizer is a band-aid and that may be true in a way. But their job is to damp oscillations and so that argument would have to be made about the rest of your shocks, too. Maybe needing two of them is a band-aid, but upgrading or changing the way yours works is just dialing in your steering IMHO. We don't think twice about matching the suspension springs and shocks, but we believe that lifting the suspension, adding a bunch of unsprung and sprung weight should not have an effect on the steering?
