Rancho steering stabilizers are designed to improve vehicle control by reducing steering shimmy and driver fatigue. Stabilizers enable you to help protect your front-end suspension components and reduce tire wear. Stabilizer is standard eyelet style (eye holes on both ends). Shock boot has factory cut slots at the bottom and black bushings are painted white by Rancho. Extended length is 19-3/4 and collapsed length is 12. Kit includes: 1 stud, 2 washers, 2 nuts, 1 cotter pin, 1 sleeve, 1 red boot and zip tie.
The Rancho RS5000 steering damper makes the stock damper look like a toy. So much more robust than the stock damper. Fits perfectly onto my Jeep ZJ.

use it for everyday driving. Improved handling by alot and was kind of difficult to install. Seems like its made out of cheap metal, snapped right at the mount

5.0Good quality shocks
These shocks are great for big trucks and SUVS. specially if you are thinking about lifting it and running bigger and wider tires.
5.0steering damper solves wheel wobble
jeep cherokee-98 stock set up- had SERIOUS front end wobble after hitting road bump/RR track crossing, etc. I changed out the track bar+bushings and anti-sway bar bushings, re-aligned, but no good results. the steering damper (shock) was worn out (SHOULD HAVE CKED IT FIRST!); installation of the new and larger than stock unit completly solved the wobble problem.
The options for vehicle drivetrain only include 4WD, though I have a 2WD 2000 Cherokee. From my research, it seems that all the 4WD stabilizers fit the 2WD Cherokees. Is this true? I want to make sure before I make the purchase. Thanks!
