Currie Anti Rock??

Can someone tell me what exactly this does and the purpose it serves?? Is it like a replacement for the sway bar or something?? I have heard several people talking about them but had no clue. Thanks

Yes its a replacement for the sawy bar. Think of it as a Dual Rate swaybar. Instead of disconnecting the front links and leaving the leveling work to the rear swaybay, you are still using some of the anti-sway of the front bar to keep your tires on the ground. With the Anti-Rock, there are 2 poistions. One for on road that is nice and stiff so you don't get bodyroll, the other is loose for the offroad so you can flex.

I'm actually looking at the TeraFlex DualRate S/T.

Skyjacker also sells the Rock Lock which we really liked after seeing it at the 2007 Off Road Impact Show in Vegas.

Using any one of these devices can be useful when you have too much flex up front.

1BLKJP also runs it.

if you get the antirock you don't have to disconnect any more

the Rock Lock is awesome. A little pricey at almost 400 bucks. But awesome. I'm probably going this route in the spring.

The Anti-Rock is one of the best things I've done to my jeep. I personally leave it on the loosest setting for both on and off road. It was a little squirrely at first, but I got used to it after a couple days. Some say that it doesn't limit flex at all. I personally know that it does limit flex because eventhough it's a torsion bar having nothing (IE Disconnected) will always let your front end flop around more.

For $300 bucks I never have to worry about disconnecting. I have plenty of flex up front with it set on the loosest setting. I will never worry about losing a coil up front because it won't let it flex that far.

I like the Currie better than all of those other higher priced gadgets that will lock/un-lock automatically because basically it's one less thing to ever worry about.

The AntiRock system, actually has five different settings. It is the most incredible system that will allow full articulation, while forcing your wheels, to the ground. It will aid in your rear end, articulating more, as well. It is by far, the easiest, and most effective way, to go, from on road, to off road. Without touching a thing.

Neither of those are dual rate antiswaybars. The Currie Antirock is a single rate swaybar, so is Tera's S/T.

Tera's ST is strictly a VERY expensive knob-controlled quick disconnect for the new stiffer antiswaybar included in their kit. Connected, it's a bit stiffer than the OE antiswaybar. Disconnected, it's just that, disconnected. Offroad, it is no different from any other antiswaybar that is disconnected. Its only benefit is when it's connected for highway driving where it has a bit more stiffness.

Currie's Antirock is a single-rate antiswaybar that is a bit less stiff than the OE antiswaybar it replaces. You can adjust how stiff it is via moving the links back or forward on the arm but that's not a quick job. It's set to one position and driven that way, on and offroad. It more or less balances the front and rear suspension so they work better together. It can also prevent flops and rolls by keeping the tub better connected to the axles so it doesn't get crazy on you. Offroad, it's an awesome upgrade that will absolutely make a huge improvement on how well your suspension works.

There are now true dual rate antiswaybars available as invented by Blaine Johnson. ORO has both lever-actuated and air actuated versions that give a stiffer highway ride by engaging an additional layer of the antiswaybar, or disengaging that additional layer for a softer offroad rate that is equal to the Currie Antirock offroad. There's at least one more manufacturer that has licensed the dual-rate design and will be releasing it for sale before too much longer. I don't recall the name of that firm but perhaps someone else knows it.

So getting say...JKS Quicker Discos AND a Currie Antirock would be redundant (so to speak)? and, am I hearing that the Antirock would be favorable to the Discos?

Yes, if you get an Anti-Rock there will never be a need for you to have disco's again. I'm not sure how much disco's are, but I would bet that the 300 for the Currie combined with the time and effort it saves having to disconnect and re-connect definitely outweigh buying pricey disco's.

an antirock would definitely be sweet! but i've heard that the JKS quicker discos are a piece of cake to reconnect. i was talkin to Kat and she said they're easy to reconnect. so you get maximum articulation offroad and still keeps the jeep stable on road.

but i'd still like an antirock

I run the anti-rock as well. It does limit the extreme articulation that is unwanted but it keeps the wheels on the ground better. Thus having more traction and still keeps it as stable as you want on road.
