P32 stock steering stabilizer vs. Safe T Plus

My 2005 Safari Simba has ~35K miles on it. I am preparing to service the suspension to improve handling. I have checked my bell cranks and they seem to be in good shape. I am replacing my shocks with Koni FSDs.

My stock steering stabilizer seems to be in good shape. Steering feels fairly tight & solid.
When I ordered my new shocks I didn't realize the coach was built with a steering stabilizer so I ordered a Safe T Plus which I now have in my possession.
My question is how much difference the Safe T Plus might make over the stock stabilizer. I appreciate that any answers I receive will be subjective, but that's what I'm looking for. Brazels will accept a return on the Safe T Plus minus a 10% restocking fee. I could apply those $$ to something else - new Firestone airbags, supersteer coil springs (have to do one or the other) or other upgrades. But what are your thoughts?
Thanks, in advance, for any opinions you are willing to share.

I'd put the SafeTPlus on, but that's just me. Probably heavier duty than the OEM one as it might just be a damper.

X2 on the Safe T plus over the stock damper. With the upgrade you get some extra protection should you have a front wheel blowout. That's part of the reason I installed mine. (Different brand for a different rig, same concept)

X3 on the Safe- T plus. I would do a rear Trac-bar next. Won't improve ride, but sure will improve handling. Then the front air bags.

The verdict is in

The Safe T Plus is going on. Along with new SuperSteer springs.
