Improve Steering & Handling with a Rancho® RS7MT® Steering Stabilizer

When to Install a Steering Stabilizer

When making modifications to your vehicle like adding a suspension lift kit or installing larger tires, it can cause changes to how your rig handles. From the trail to the pavement, you may find that driving your vehicle is a challenge; adding a steering stabilizer can improve the steering and handling of your vehicle.

What Does a Steering Stabilizer Do?

Acting as a shock absorber, a steering stabilizer mounts on the steering linkage to dampen the vibrations that can come from the tires through the steering system. As your truck or SUV’s tires travels over bumps or other hazards, the steering stabilizer dampens the impact to deliver a smoother ride. In addition, a steering stabilizer can help center larger tires to maintain a straight line while driving down the road.
