Steering Stabilizer upgrade helps to cure Death Wobble!
This kit fits WJ Grand’s with the factory track bar or 1″ replacements, such as Rough Country. Please see item KOR-2022 for 1.25″ aftermarket track bars, such as JKS.
Our steering stabilizers have outstanding Death Wobble resistance! Designed to reduce the effect of wheel “flutter” and improve the feel, handling and control of the vehicle, our steering stabilizers will also reduce the aggressive rotation of the steering wheel over rough roads without affecting steering wheel return.
Due to the seemingly ever-increasing cost of the OME products, I spent some time sourcing a private-label steering stabilizer that we’ve found works just as well at resisting Death Wobble as the OME stabilizer does. We tried many different manufacturer’s stabilizers out on our Jeeps, including all of the big names and some of the small names, and we found that there was only one company who could make a steering stabilizer that equalled the OME in quality and in dampening, so we struck a deal with them, buying them in bulk to drive down your price. Our new Hard-KOR stabilizer is equal in every way to the OME stabilizer, and we are VERY happy to not only offer you a product that’s as high a quality, but also, costs you less. It’s a win-win situation for you!!
Anyway, I have added in the Hard-KOR Stabilizer to our product line, and know that you’re going to love the way it feels. If not, no risk…just send it on back to me and I’ll give you a full refund less shipping. That’s how strongly I feel about it, and so far we’ve had exactly zero people asking for an exchange. Like all of the products you’ll find on my website, I’ve tested and replaced part after part until I found the most desirable one for a particular application on the market to sell here on my website. The KOR and OME steering stabilizers are hands-down the clear and distinct winner when it comes to a controlled ride and improved resistance to Death Wobble.
THIS DUAL STEERING STABILIZER KIT WILL REPLACE YOUR UNDERSIZED FACTORY MOUNTED STEERING STABILIZER, AS WELL AS ADD A SECOND STABILIZER TO YOUR STEERING SYSTEM TO SMOOTH OUT THE RIDE.
This kit includes one Hard-KOR stabilizer and the mounting kit to install it in the secondary mounting position. As well as a KOR-9309 primary location replacement stabilizer packaged along with a KOR-1002 mounting kit to replace your primary stabilizer at the same time for the maximum possible Death Wobble resistance and steering smoothness possible. You will get a huge value out of these two items installed in conjunction with each other!)
We’ve done a lot of Death Wobble cures here at the shop, and have found that for some reason, the WJ Grand Cherokees seem to have a higher propensity for Death Wobble than the XJ Cherokees and ZJ Grand Cherokees do. We think this is because the steering stabilizer is mounted between the tie-rod and the axle on the WJ, rather than between the drag link and the axle like on the XJ/ZJ/TJ.
You will need to specify at the time of ordering whether you have the stock track bar that came with your WJ, or if it has been upgraded to a beefier adjustable bar. Aftermarket bars can vary in size. The ones we offer from JKS and Iron Rock are made of 1.25″ tubing and are much more substantial than the factory bar. Some manufacturers offer an adjustable bar that is still only 1″ thick (such as Rough Country). We suggest you measure your bar to be sure if you do not know. We can also help you with upgrading the hardware if you buy the kit for the stock track bar, and upgrade to a thicker bar later. There is a difference in price between the two kits, due to the smaller clamps for the factory bar being much more expensive to source.
“I just wanted to let you guys know the JKS Track Bar and your WJ dual stabilizer kit worked better than I could have dreamed! Before when I hit bumps the steering would shudder and, if above 40 m.p.h., there was a high chance of severe death wobble. This is great! I have been living with the problem since I bought my WJ 2 years ago. 30k miles of agony later I saw this kit. God Bless You Kevin’s! My Jeep drives like it always should have.” –Thanks again, Tom C., Port Angeles, WA
“Kevin, I have a 99 WJ with a Tera Flex 4-inch lift on it. I have had death wobble for several months now that I could not fix. I replaced tie rods, tires, track bar, had the caster angle changed, replaced the steering stabilizer, and more. Nothing was working. I had already replaced the original stabilizer so I went ahead and left that one on. I figured two would be better. I purchased a Steering Stabilizer relocation kit and dampener from you, and the problem is fixed. I tried everything else first when I should have just tried this. Maybe if someone else reads what I went through, they wont have to go through it as well. You have a new customer for life. Thanks a bunch.” -A satisfied customer, Scott M., Westminster, CO
“I just installed the Dual SS and thought I’d let ya know that it did its job! awesome product will be doing business again!” – Blake, Deland, FL
The kit comes with the following:

– Mounting hardware for both stabilizers, which is specific to your WJ
(Currently we do not offer the hardware kits separately.)
