Steering stabilizer for 39.5's

On the 60 front end with 39.5 tsl' and stock steering stabilizer the steering is jerky left and right going down my dirt road. It has the stock stabilizer on it but its shot and need of a new one. What i need to know is a single new one better than a dual one? Or is there a better single shock that works like a dual one? Going down the road its fine but on a road with bumps the steering wheel goes the way it wants to back and fourth. So should it be single or dual? Thanks ahead
75/79 W100, 440, 44 tsl's, 8 inch lift, 3 inch body lift with 60/14 bolt, both locked. 9.5 warn, Custom alot.
86 rc with 5in lift, 318 built, 52'' michiliens. Hacked fenders, really hacked.
2002 dodge 2500 diesel with exhaust, intake and chip mods.
1946 dodge with 470,727 and 70's

sounds like more than just a bad stabilizer. i do not run a stabilizer on anything and i do not have this problem. when my front end got the death wobble, i checked the tre;s and dle's and kingpins...found a weak spring in the kingpin

I stack a couple of thick washers in my spring caps to put added tension on the springs. I have no stabilizer and have no problems with mine.

I run 39.5 on my D60 and had steering wobble. Installed new kingpin kits on both sides and now no death wobble and no stabilizers. Like someone else said, check your TRE and kingpins. The kingpins weren't that hard to do and the kit is cheap ($45 side).
