Hardy1000's post pretty well summarizes the situation. the JK website has a lot of information. I had my first DW at 40k, on a stock suspension. The OEM steering damper was so shot that that I could stroke it without effort by hand. $40 for a pro-one damper, no more problems. I liked it so well that I stuck in 4 new shocks shortly thereafter, since the OEM's are, shall we say, built to a price? Total cost about $200, time about an hour, major improvement in handling.

Ok, since nobody caught it, I will come back to add one more thing.

In my last post I meant to say: "caster". Caster is what helps keep the DW away, and keep you happily going 'straighter' down the road.

You NEVER hear anyone talk about it because it is basically one of those 'adjustment' that are 'built-in', and not so easy to alter.

But it is MY opinion that the Jeeps did NOT come factory with enough caster.

I had 3 jeeps, and worked on enough to have this opinion.
