Steering Stabilizer Stop Replacement Service

What is the Steering Stabilizer Stop all about?

Vehicles that are equipped with oversized tires have excessive weight at the front wheels -- weight that the manufacturer didn’t intend. This can produce excessive steering feedback in a rapid frequency, which can be uncontrollable. It is called a ‘death wobble’ due to its frightening and often dangerous shaking. A steering damper assists in solving a death wobble, and many trucks and SUV’s are equipped with one. A steering stabilizer absorbs much of the vibration that causes a death wobble due to the dampening effects of a fluid-charged cylinder. It's design is essentially that of a suspension system’s shock absorber, which eliminates bounce in a vehicle. The steering stabilizer may be lighter duty than necessary for applications with oversized wheels, or it may be worn out.

Keep in mind:

  • A steering stabilizer or damper can be added to a truck that is not already equipped with one.
  • A suspected problem with your steering stabilizers may actually have to do with your suspension, or even suspension air bags (if you have them).

How it's done:

  • The vehicle front wheels are put straight and the vehicle is lifted and supported on jack stands
  • The defective steering stabilizer stop is removed
  • The new steering stabilizer is installed
  • The vehicle is removed from jack stands
  • The vehicle is started and checked for steering stabilizer stop operation

Our recommendation:

A steering stabilizer’s condition is checked with every regular maintenance or suspension inspection performed on your vehicle. If you suspect a problem with your steering stabilizer or if you experience a related symptom, have one of our expert mechanics check your suspension and steering, and repair it if necessary.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Steering Stabilizer Stop?

How important is this service?

People say the nicest things



Kevin showed up ready to do his job and did just that. He showed me a couple important things on my vehicle I had overlooked and was nothing less than incredibly professional, knowledgeable, and informative. I would, without hesitation recommend him to anyone I know and would gladly use him again.



Very impressed with the quality of work. Ned was on time and on budget. There were no surprise extra costs. Ned even helped me out with my other car, even though I didn't have an appointment for the other car. He took care of all of my car problems and he even found me a coupon for an oil change. I will be using this service again.



I can't say enough about how pleased I am that I found YourMechanic and Raul. I'm from out of town and didn't know who to contact to fix a truck I was borrowing. I searched the web and found YourMechanic.....thank goodness. I found Raul to be professional, an outstanding mechanic and the price was more than fair.
