Lots of people have done all, part or none of it! What exactly ar you trying to accomplish?
I bought mine with everything done by the previous owner. I belive they had stability issues, which stemmed from the excessive toe out I found after I drove it home.

Looks like you have a 2019 Georgetown XL by your profile. Have you looked at the CHF (Cheap Handling Fix) that should take care of your roll going into a gas station. As for the steering, well these have some play on them. You may want to start with an alignment. If it’s out it will feel like it has a lot of play due to fighting the wheel back and forth.

Went for the Full Monty

When the Mothership was in the shop I had Roadmaster front and rear heavy duty sway bars put in, Safe T Plus steering stabilizer and summo springs front and rear installed. After recovering from Emergency Room treatment for total costs I can now drive with one hand.

The quick fix with just a pair of front summo springs could do the trick. Take baby steps as each rig is different.

I started with a front alignment, then did the CHF, and finished with the sumo springs. It is handling great now, just still doesn't like side winds. Oh well, you can't have it all.
