It is true that a single pass stearing stabilizer shock, much like a single pass hydraulic ram is faster in one direction than the other and there was a definite perception at one time (1980s) that you could equal this out by utilizing a second stearing stabilizer shock placed in the the opposite direction (longitudinally) ... Today, with the advent of double pass adjustable stearing stabilizers there is no longer a need for the glamor harkening back to the 1980s representation of modern tech. Fortunately it's a good looking jeep and I don't see a freshly installed set of fluorescent pink triple blade windshield wipers.

    All joking aside, dual stearing stabilizer shocks are a bit much, not adjustable and depending on the valving possably a bit overkill, with a tendency to mask a greater issue. It is entirely possible they were not placed there to hide/ deal with death wobble, in fact, they could just be there because the PO liked them. You may consider removing them and checking for the dreaded "death wobble" and then seek to repair its cause. If no "death wobble" exists, put them back on and drive that baby to your hearts content.
    Thanks for the advice Iíll do that, do I just remove the driver side shock and leave the passenger side on?

    Dual steering stabilizers wouldn't hide death wobble. Pull one off go balance wheels if your tires are good and you be fine

    Possible cause for the death wobble are as follow, But is not limited to:

    1) incorrect tire balancing
    2) incorrect tire mounting
    3) incorrect wheel spacers
    4) using lug centric instead of hub centric wheels
    5) inferior shocks
    6) weakened or sagging coils
    7) misaligned coils or shocks
    8) weakened or abused ball joints, bushing etc
    9) incorrect suspension lift
    10) misaligned front end
