Unhappy Steering Stabilizer+Bracket HELP!!!

Okay so I have a 2008 ram 1500 laramie. It has a 3" body lift, 2.5" leveling kit+1.5'' blocks and shocks in the rear, 35'' tires. Since I put the lift and tires on I have noticed a small wobble and drift when driving(death wobble) and I wanted to install a dual steering stabilizer and wanted to install a stabilizer bracket also to solve the wobble problem. My question is what a good dual stabilizer kit for my truck and where can I find a stabilizer bracket??? I hear PSC makes a good bracket but for some reason they don't sell it for 2008 ram 1500. Or do they not sell it cost it's not needed after I install the dual stabilizer cause that will solve my wobble issue. PLEASE help me, I'm at a dead end with this.

A steering stabilizer would mask the problem. Primary cause of death wobble is a bad alignment, bad ball joints and bad unit bearings.....in that order. Take it to a good shop and fix the issue, don't cover it up.

Is there anyway to make a stabilizer fit on a 1500 for having 35's. The big tires tend to jerk the wheel and a damper should do the truck but im confused on how to custom fit this

Here is what I am getting on mine. I agree with battlerattle though, fix the problems first. The stabalizer will help for the hardcore off road stuff and it looks cool. http://bds-suspension.com/product-display?all

I miss spoke, its not technically a death wobble, more of a jerk of the wheel with big bumps. I figured a damper should correct the problem? is there a way to custom fit the damper to the frame and tie rod with proper clearance. has anyone had this problem?

that would be great! dumb question, you have a IFS right? not a solid axle.+ i think BDS makes stabilizers for the lifts only.

It is IFS, however I am not sure if the BDS kit fits just lifts or not, but I will let you know. I did order it with my lift but it came with the wrong shocks, so it should be good to go next week. It is good to drive it without so I can compare.
