Not even close. Leaf spring suspensions are cheaper and simpler but in no way do they perform better than a coil spring suspension does offroad. That is why there are so many conversions from leaf to coil or coilover suspensions but it is extremely rare, and usually just done for the hell of it, to convert from coil spring to leaf spring.

Go to a competitive high-end event like King of the Hammers, which I'm lucky enough to have fairly close by me, and you'd see that 100% of the competitors are running either coil or coilover suspensions.

No worries. I guess I read more into it than you meant...like I had an agenda....I can see how different people in different Jeep setups would have different poinys of view on the product. When I 1st used a quick disco, it was a huge upgrade to me and still is for people running stock setup and want more.

Antirock on stock

Can or has anybody run the Antirock on a stock height rubi? if so how far off parallel can the arms be and have this system still work?

The physics of the antirock make it much better than disconnecting. Man may argue that it limits the articulation of the axle but in reality it stops the axle from fighting with the opposite side. By controlling the articulation it controls the axle in a more "smart" manner.

Read this to see why you want the arms where they should be:

You can trim the links so that they're the proper height for your lift (or lack there of) height.

The proper angle for the Antirock arms is simply just above horizontal... somewhere around 15 degrees is fine but there is no need to use an angle finder to try to get it exactly at 15 degrees.

Mine is exactly as stated above Jerry but........when I'm at full droop on the drivers side the antirock bar gets hung up the huge power steering bolt....do i need to grind it down (the bolt)?

I have learned from race cars adjustability is important to have and not requiring a lot of time to do it. I have given myself a few adjustable options so far to keep my body roll and ride more than acceptable between the AR and the Rancho 9000XLs . I have found if I set the AR stiffer the jeep rocks back and forth quickly on uneven roads. I soften the AR settings and it reduced that effect but will lean a little more making sharp turns naturally. I have it pretty well down now to one notch stiffer on the Ranchos for winter with Hard top and full doors on and all is good again and leave the AR setting alone at next to the softest setting .... so far. I think the adjustable shocks are a nice match for the AR especially if you have many different uses for your Jeep or you are like me and can't leave anything alone to long.

Lol, how did that happen? Currie has always been great when dealing with warranty stuff in the past, I'd give them a call and see what's up.

I was just going up a trail by my house and POP! it went. I also run a rear AR with 12" travel front & 11" rear walker Evans shocks. I still like the AR setup over disco setup any day.

Yeah you're right on the Every Man Challenge part of the KOH but for the actual KOH race that takes place on Friday, I sure don't recall any that didn't have coils or coil overs. Well, I guess that little Toyota truck that came in dead last and made me stay at my Checkpoint until 11:20 that night until he passed through probably had rear leafs and IFS. So far as the serious competitors, I don't recall any leaf spring suspensions passing through my check point.

Well the Antirock looks about right from that picture, maybe just a rare defect.

Here's a picture of my TJ with the Antirock installed. It works great off road with minimal body roll as a DD.

So here is a question that I am sure will get answered in the instructions but since I have not ordered the AR yet but will in the next 2 weeks would like to know.

When installing the links will using the current ones as a guide suffice in making the proper adjustments work for the AR links?

I was over thinking it and ended up exchanging some emails with currie to figure it out. Then went that was easy.

To and from work the entire next week? That's what I enjoy doing just to show my confidence in the parts used and how it's set up. Without the AR, my ride on-road would be too bouncy/unpredictable (the stock sway bar is WAY TOO STIFF) and I wouldn't be wheeling where I do now.....no way in hell.

The stock sway bar is a hindrance. If you want to retain that handicap, go right ahead. If you're content on the bunny hills, you'll be happy with being disconnected. If you want to improve the rig and wheel where your particular tire size is a necessity, unbolt the stock sway bar and replace it with a proper torsion sway bar.
Hey imped do you have a rear swaybar on your rig or just the antirock up front?
