Heavy Duty Steering Damper?

Is there such a thing? I need a new steering damper and the thought came to mind that it might be nice to have heavier steering.
Also I have larger tires installed and I know a stiffer damper is used when they put Huge tires on trucks... maybe this is why I think the steering isn't heavy enough?
I'm sure any damper would fix my problem, but if there is a heavy duty damper I would buy it.

A heavier damper would indeed make the steering wheel harder to turn, but that's not what heavier steering is about. Heavier steering gives more feedback to the driver by making steering wheel harder to turn as the car is cornered more aggressively. With the heavy damper, you will not be feeling the cornering of the car, you will be feeling the stiffness of the damper.
