Pros & cons to using the Currie Anti-Rock vs Quick Disconnects

I am starting to get more serious with modifying my TJ. I always hear people talk about quick disconnects but I never hear anyone talk about the Currie Antirock setup. I'm curious to get peoples feed back on what they prefer and why. Just with my research, the Currie seems to be the way to go.

go with the currie...slightly on the expensive side but definitely the way to go.

I did quick discos when i was first doing my build and wish i would have researched it first...would have gone with the antirock for sure. Antirock is on my list of one of the next things i get.

You wont regret it...

x2 on going straight to the Antirock first. I've got JKS quick discos, and while they aren't a bad product, I wish I would've just put up the extra cash and got the Antirock. It still allows for articulation but keeps the jeep stable in off-camber situations.

Antirock is the way to go but the price point keeps most of us talking about quick discos. Have to prioritize the emptying of every pocket.

Antirock or Teraflex s/t swaybar. I have the teraflex one. Don't even have to get on the ground. turn the knob by the front bumper and you are disconnected.

I love my currie. So nice to not have to stop and disconnect before hitting the trails. Also, not having to re connect after, especially after being thru mud.

These are all great reasons for why I wanted everyone's opinion. I look at as I'm spending ALL this money on upgrading my jeep, I might as well go all the way and do it right.

Well I have made up my mind and I'm going with the Currie.

The tougher the trail, the more the all-business Currie Antirock shines.

A reliable, stable, well-built Jeep costs money and there's no way around it. One Currie AR is a drop in the bucket when you look at the big picture but having good sway bars is critical.

There are already thousands of threads on this exact subject. Look around.

Thanks Everyone!

That's a common question, the Antirock doesn't limit usable flex. Here's a great video by John Currie to explain it...



A spray white lithium grease is good for its heim joints.

I think all of these "anti rock or quick disconnects" threads could be answered with this quick statement:

The Anti-rock only has 2 cons: 1). The price 2). The body roll during on-street driving. And this is just an opinion of individual drivers. Most (including me) barely notice the difference and once you get used to it, you are used to it.

In all other scenarios, the Currie Anti-rock is better than quick disconnects.

Another thing about the body roll is that it can be adjusted by which hole you choose to use and also by what shocks you have. On my rig I have RC 2.0 shocks (POS) when I put the bar on it was a little loose for my liking so I moved it forward and there was a huge difference. However, last week my front left shock blew out and now it's all over the road haha

So, where you run the rod onto the bracket is a matter of preference in relation to how it rides?

(the reason I asked, was I watched the video and it's stating the location of where you place the bar is relative to it's stiffness...which I still don't completely understand)

Like I said in my previous post, I'm a complete greenhorn when it comes to anything vehicle related...then you add off road components into the mix and you're going to be looking at me like I'm a new age Helen Keller.

People are posting flex shots just to show that they can, in fact, still flex with the Anti Rock installed. (something you would not be able to do if your stock sway bar was still connected)

There are advantages of running an anti rock sway bar over running no sway bar when offroad.

X2, well said. John Currie won a lot of rock crawling championships while running front and rear Antirock antiswaybars.

what are those advantages? i would think you get more flex without the sway bar connected... i posted in another thread on the JK side of the forum... i'm on the fence with the anti-rock i just don't understand it well enough i suppose. but i think i want to try one... just a big investment...

any insight JB or JCro?

Its all about increasing stability while still maintaining articulation.

Because the AR has a softer rate than the stock sway bar and, in short, is not the limit in articulation.
