JT Strongarm / BAL Lock-Arm stabilizers

Hi - Has anyone installed the JT Strongarm or BAL Lock-Arm stabilizers on their rig, and how do you like them? Did they do a good job? Are they worth it?
Even with my 4 corner stabilizers, BAL X-chocks, and 4 Camco pyramid jacks around the axles the trailer will still shake enough to wake me if we have guests who roll over in their sleep in the back bunks or if the DW gets up to use the facilities.
Thanks in advance!

I installed the BAL Lock-Arm stabilizers. They stop the side to side shaking considerably. See my thread.

We installed some stablizers from http://www.plugitright.com/RVStabilizer.html

Best money we ever spent, stops the movement better than chocks, wedges, tripods, etc

Did the JT Strongarms on my unit and they can be found under the 365 Mods thread. Big difference in wiggle reduction, pretty much removed it all up front and side to side.

If you haven't committed yet, check out the Steadyfast stabilizers. They are much easier and quicker to set and un-set. We use them and have to only turn the 3 large wing nuts and the unit is at least as solid as any other brand if not more so. http://www.steadyfast.com/howitworks.html
