One other movement I have found helpful for overhead shoulder stability is Gironda Presses, originated by bodybuilding guru Vince Gironda. It's basically a two dumbbell alternating DB Press, where you start with both DBs overhead, then lower one while the other stays up, alternating arms each rep. Sets of 5-8 reps works well. Similar in function to the the overhead DB support walk, but more dynamic since it involves a press in addition to the overhead support.
