I don't see why you'd need a stabilizer in case of a blowout...as long as the power steering is still working. We had a RF blowout last May on I 55 south of Chicago...no problem at with maintaining control or steering. It had a pretty good vibration but no control problems.
Front tire?

That is exactly my point/question. With the power steering on the DP, in term of the forces applied to the steering mechanism , there is so much advantage to the steering wheel side , how much is added (or rather to what advantage) by these mechanisms that are attached on the wheel side???

Okay, thanks everybody for the responses

What I'm hearing is that with a good DP chassis (Freightliner) there's really no need for these mods.

Maybe I am the only one with an XCS chassis that is affected by road crown and wind. I have the blue ox true center and it reduces driving fatigue by 50%. I no longer have to hold a wheel off set into the wind for 4 hours. I click the switch and the wheel is centered. Road crown is the same, click, done.

I am driving the same weight and setup as the rest of you. (Michelins and Koni shocks) Maybe I am too sensitive. Other rigs and trucks passing never was a big event. I hope I do not have a front blow out to see how well the chassis performs.
