Bilsteins 5100 Series Steering Stabilizers are made for late model trucks and Jeeps and feature a gas pressure monotube design that eliminates cavitation and foaming. Other features include: Precise steering damping, Reduces steering component vibration, Reduces wear and tear of steering components, Durable Corrosion resistant Bilstein Triple C process zinc finish, Digressive valving, made from the highest quality components, Offers optimum driver comfort & confidence, O.E. Replacement 36mm & 46mm models, Easy Installation.
I bought this to replace the leaky, worn-out stabilizer which was probably stock. It's a simple part to replace, taking one 18mm wrench on my JK. This part did not make it easier or harder to replace, as any replacement would have been as simple.
Where this part shines is in the fact it looks good and is made by a company known for quality. Time will tell if it holds up but in the couple of weeks I've had it, I am very satisfied.

Did not realize how bad the old one was until I installed the new Bilstein.
No more bump steer when driving down the road.

Just installed and have a few hundred miles on my Jeep with the new steering damper, matches my 5100 shocks to complete the lift kit. Going from an oil filled damper to a gas charged, tends to pull to the left... Will give a few more miles, undecided.

I would put this on all my Jeeps.
This is a great product. A must if you are going to upgrade your tires or go rock crawling.
