Which would you do first? I have 37x12.5 tires and really only have the $ to do one at a time. Truck now has 79000 miles and stock steering stabilizer and tie rod ends, drives fine and have never had DW or even a hint of it. just want to tighten the steering up a bit. Lemme hear your opinions!
One of the first things I did was add the shocks for the ride (to help smooth the ride over the expansion joints on the freeway)---admittedly I didn't know about the steering stabilizer 5 yrs ago. I did put one on when I basically reworked the entire front end 2 yrs ago (ball joints, steering stabilizer, hubs, brakes, etc). I would say if the front end is still good-no slop in it, I'd go for shocks.

I installed the brace first then the bilsteins. I honestly couldn't tell you because my steering wasn't terrible when installed. I beleive it has been an important factor making it all last this long though. If one at a time yes do the brace. PSC's are like 130 or 140 last time I checked. My dual bilsteins were like 240.
