Default steering box stabilizer, which one is best?

I know there are a few places out there that sell/make them, but which one is best and I see some are different thickness's.. Does this really matter? It also looks like custom-diesel.com has the best deal at $139 what do you think? And last question what is the best route to go for a leveling kit???


Thanks!

I now see custom-diesel has a steering stabilizer and 2" leveling kit package for $219 this seems pretty good to me what do you think!?

---AutoMerged DoublePost---

can anyone give me some input?? Is there any difference between this one from custom-diesel or an equivalent from ebay?

BD steering stabalizer is my vote, I've had on on my old 2k Ram with a leveling kit. If you are planning to have the truck for awhile I would stay away from puck style leveling kits for the stock coils. They ride like a brick. If that doesnt matter to you then yes that will work good

Thanks for the info guys I ended up ordering this off of ebay because it was the cheapest I could find and they seem to all be built the same.

(1994 2002 Dodge RAM 2500 3500 1500 4x4 Steering Gear Box Stabilizer | eBay)

I got it on monday but haven't installed it yet, It looks great though and came packaged really nice haha. I'll have it installed in a few days and let you guys know how it is as I'm in the middle of doing some work to my truck.

Hey guys, put my steering stabilizer in the other day and wow what a difference! It feels like a brand new truck and was a super easy install. Even while towing our flat deck car hauler loaded I noticed a huge difference

HUH? a big advantage to using those pucks is that they retain the factory ride quality for cheap. how could adding a 2" spacer possibly change the spring rate of the spring?
