Rear Sway BAR HELP

I have 99 tj with an 5.5 Rustys long arm lift, 37inch tires, and dana 60 axles...it does not have a rear sway bar and as a result does not feel very stable expecially decelarating and turning. I am trying to decide on what rear sway bar to buy; either the Currie antirock or the skyjacker rocklock or any others.

I dont care about disconnecting or not, my main goal is that I want it to be more stable/ safer for on road use ....Also any shocks you guys recommed to help firm up the ride........any advice would help out

I would go with the Currie Rear Anti-Rock, I've seen more build thread using that one then Skyjacker and plus Currie has a way better "rep" then skyjacker.

As for shocks I would recommend probably the Rancho adjustables, but I dont think they have one long enough for your lift. You can check out their line of shocks, otherwise Bilstein w/ resevoir would be the other.

While the Currie Antirock is awesome, I run one myself up front, you can actually get away in the rear just fine with the factory antiswaybar. You only need to make longer links to match your lift height. I made my longer rear antiswaybar links from nothing more than 1/2x10 threaded allrod and four inexpensive heim joints.

I definitely agree with the need for a rear antiswaybar on a TJ, they even help offroad.

Check out Northridge 4x4.

This sway bar looks similar to the factory one but its cheaper than the currie. There's no end links which are easy to get any where.

The factory rear antiswaybar should run 1/10th that used from a junkyard and it works very well on and offroad. With an unlimited budget I'd go for Currie's Antiswaybar but shy of that, I'd just find a used one that will work fine and be cheap.

I dont think I will be able to run a factory sway bar due to me having a dana 60 (f350) rear end, but I could be wrong any one know about this....

Also anything else I could do to make my ride more stable on road other than rear sway bar and stiffer shocks

That you have a D60 rear end doesn't really change anything with regards to why your TJ needs a rear antiswaybar, its coil spring suspension. Antiswaybars and good shocks will really help. You could also 'outboard' your rear shocks by moving the lower rear shock attach points a few inches outboard of where they are now. That helps a lot. My rear shock mounts have been outboarded so that, together with my front Antirock antiswaybar, rear antiswaybar, and OME Nitrocharger shocks, it handles very well.
