OK, yes I need one.

Based on just about all of my prior purchasing experiences, I would like some input from others as to what to get.

I would like the RC dual system, but don't think it works with aftermarket diff's.

So, any input is good input

In reality you really don't need a new one unless it is damaged or leaking etc..., just relocate it. I'm running fine with my stock one with the 37's. I would just relocated to the top of the tie rod. If you think you need a dual system, you are mistaken....Don't do it they are really only for looks or to hide other issues in your front end. If your caster is set correctly, and dont have any underlying issues, you won't have any problems.

Although the dual systems do score points for cool looks

...and cool looks don't mean functionality...much like the 3.8 JKP below (Gladiator)! Although, cool looks do make you a trail rock star! Cool

Called bump steer..... This is caused by your drag link and Track bar not being parallel...

Either way, your stabilizer is not causing it, but since it is leaking I would replace it.

"This is caused by your drag link and Track bar not being parallel...."

Ok.. how is that corrected?
I'm having the same usues with feeling every little bump and I get a wobble at 45-50..mph. I've balanced tire and blanced tire again, replaced all shocks to get rid of shock adapters that came with Teraflex BB, how running full length skyjackers. Replaced Steering Stablizer and I've got Full Traction adj. Track bars frt and rear to install at the party Sat.... maybe we can check over my steering/trackbar/etc over too.

I had the death wobble Monday the way to work. I ended up in the median of the road the shaking was that bad! Luckily I didn't hit anything. Took tires in for another reblance it helped but the wobble is there but less noticable.

That 40-50mph shimmy is definitely from tires out of balance. Unfortunately the vast majority of tire shops can not properly balance these big tires. Their machine shows that it's balanced, but they are not. Geo ended up taking his to a shop that specializes in balancing tractor-trailer tires, and they got it right. I just wish I could find a shop like that near me. I have lifetime balancing from Discount Tires. I literally stand there and watch them balance, and see that the machine says they are dead on. But then I drive away and get the 40-50mph shimmy. Sad

try firestone at fort sam. they have the "road force" balancing machine. it balances the tire with a roller against the tire to simulate the tire tolling on the road. I think the firestone on 1604 & culebra might have the same balancing machine too, but not positive.
