YOU have both of you have RACK and PINION steering..

people use steering stabilizers on Steering BOX style steering which you do not have..

there is nothing to stabilize on a rack and pinion..

google rack and pinion to learn how it works...

a steering stabilizer is just a bandaid anyway. there is normally something wrong which needs fixed.

when have you had an alignment? tires rotated? balljoints?

well that helps a little.
well i thought it might help my truck for when i put 33s on it. but my buddy has an extended cab 4x4 w BL and 33 13.50 tsl on it and keeps tellin me he needs one so bad and i tell him they dont make any that i know of. my truck aint bad but his is. so im just guessin he needs balljoints and an alignment anyways but really wanted your opinions 1st. i havent got a chance to check anything on his truck, he doesnt know much about mechanics and i dont either but i know more than him. guess ill look at the balljoints tomorrow.
