Whats the best front sway bar for a CJ7

Doing a frame up rebuild of my 84 CJ7 and almost time to do the front end. I am in the middle of a shackle reverse with YJ springs, and do intend to do more pavement driving than any hardcore wheeling, so I want to incorporate a sway bar now.
Any ideas or suggestions?

I've got a shackel reversal with YJ springs on my 80 CJ7. I run 33" BFG ATs with wide track CJ axles under a 4.5" Rubicon Express lift kit (no body lift). I went a long time without a steering stablizer and added one a few years ago. Honestly, I never noticed a difference. This jeep is my daily driver and off road toy. I added the stablizer before I did the reversal. I had bad bump steer when I swapped axles to wide track. I thought the stablizer would help, but I couldn't tell. The reversal stopped the bump steer and gave me a much smoother ride. My reversal kit was by Mountain Off Road Enterprises (M.O.R.E.) & I think I used a ranchero stablizer?

The leaf springs aren't gonna allow a lot of sway. You can get away without them.

Really the best happy medium between a cumbersome sway bar and body roll would be a good set of shocks such as bilstein 5100, OME, or Rancho rs9000. That will contain the body roll fairly well as long as you remember you are not driving a civic.

Yea, after reading the other suggestions, I'm thinking no sway-bar, and yes, some good shocks. Should look cleaner without one as well. Not so busy.
Thanks.
