Currie amtirock question

It sais online you don't need to disconnect to go off road but when I don't I don't get any flex is this normal?

Currie's Antirock does not limit usable flex unless perhaps you have its link positioned all the way forward to its tightest position. 99.999% of those of us who have Antirocks set them in the second-to-last or last position and leave them there. If your front suspension doesn't have much flex, it's something else besides the Antirock.

It's a torsion bar.....it can twist. Disconnecting the links would totally negate the entire reason you purchased the sway bar and negate the huge benefits from running such a setup. The lack of articulation in your front suspension is due to something else. What are all the details of your suspension? Got a rear sway bar?

Maybe it could be the shocks being on a stiff setting? I have the rancho 9000s and it is set to the second hole back I haven't messed with the settings on the shocks

Shock valving is not your issue. Think about it.

Good articulation is the result of good aftermarket components that include flexible joints on the control arms, track bar, and drag link. An inflexible factory joint at any of those locations can be the single root cause of poor articulation/flex.

It could be a lot of things. I'm not in front of your Jeep, you are. I'm sure you've got what it takes to figure things out.....

Are you actually lifting a tire? What do you mean when you say "I don't get any flex." And again, do you have a rear sway bar?

What hole do you have the antirock on? For the most flex you need it out on furthest hole from the torsion bar.

Only if you have a tall lift that can take advantage of that flex. I have my AR set to the tightest setting with a two inch OME lift and my AR doesn't restrict the flex in any way. The limiting factor for me is shock length.
