maybe for good. after finally having ever thing on the old black 8 replaced in the front end I had decided to take it and have front end aligned, after all the new stuff it just would not drive like i thought it should. it would wander and you had to stay after it, my son would not drive it, LOL It had a steering stabilizer on it but i took it off to give the front end shop one thing less to mess with, was going to paint it and reinstall after i got it back. well on the way to the shop it drove like a new jeep!! got the alignment done it was about the same or little better.
could a stabilizer cause all that crazy steering ???

Do you have a lift and what is your caster? If you have a 4in lift you need shims in the front. I even do 2 deg shims on 2.5in lifts.

Wouldn't think it would cause problems unless it was binding somehow. FWIW, I haven't had a stabilizer on my Scrambler for many years and I don't miss it at all.
