Antirock sway-bar kit..

Hey! anyone runnin a Currie antirock sway bar kit on their tj? wanna see if i can get some reviews on it... the tj i should be getting soon has a skyjacker 6'' lift on it but the guy welded a stinger to the body but to do that he had to remove the oe sway bar... This guy is a close friend of mine so i know what he tells me about the tj is true... just want to get some ideas for when i get it... it needs a little tlc but otherwise is gorgeous!!!

Ordered my kits (front and back) yesterday. They should be in later next week. I'll do a writeup as I install 'em and post it on here.

I don't have the Anti Rock but something similar.
I have the ORO SwayLOC on mine. Hands down the best money I have spent on my rig to date.

Most consider it a little weak for street use, but there are nothing but good words on its offroad use. Personally i'd rather run quick discos than a low rate sway bar. I like a stiff sway bar for the mountain roads on the way to the trails. Then disconnect and you are good to go. If its a trailer rig, then go for it!

not its mostly gonna be a Daily Driver/Weekend Crawler... so i want something nice and stiff for the roads but also something awesome for the trails, is it possible to put a stock sway bar under the frame instead of over? and just weld the brackets or something and get some quick disconnects??

I've been running the currie antirock swaybar for just about a year now.

Wonderful. No more disconnecting for trail work, does not lessen the flexibility of the jeep on the trail at all.

On the road, it is a bit squishy. Takes a day or so to get used to the extra frame roll you get. If you are running big tires on the freeway, you should be used to some of it already.

My recommendation, get it. Install it. You will have different settings so you can set it for the right road stiffness that will still allow you to run the trails. If you rock crawl, you'll have to either accept a less than perfect street setting or adjust it before you go.

Hehe...nope no sway bars at all right now. I cut out the entire suspension and have been redesigning and rebuilding it over the last 2 years. Finally at the end of the project right now and am finally ready to put 'em on.

Right now, however it is nice and squishy!

I use it on my TJ in the front because I prefer a little softer bar than the oe . To improve the ride I installed Clayton long arms and the AR sway bar complimented that set up . It has a little more body roll but when you hit a joint in the concrete road it is not harsh like it used to be with the OE bar and I still have some stiffer settings if I want to use them .

Does it do good on the street or do you tow your rig? Well i guess if you towed your rig you wouldn't have a sway bar at all! for big lift (5.5) and big tires (37's) from your experience would it do good? What are your specs (lift tire) and how does it do. You said its great but is that just off road? sorry for the bombard of questions.

Currie's Antirock has a sterling reputation among hardcore offroaders and is absolutely one of the best things you can do for your TJ's suspension if you offroad on anything more difficult than a beginner level trail.

Its benefit is on the trail, not the street. It's fine on the street too but its purpose is to help the suspension work better on difficult terrain and improve your offroad traction.
