The SwayLOC is one of my top 3 upgrades
. However, it is expensive but I am happy with its performance off-road (soft setting) and especially while driving on pavement (firm setting). I also appreciate the ease and convenience (I no longer get dirty from reconnecting my old disconnect links) of flipping a lever to change the rate from soft to firm. I used to own Teraflex's Quick Disconnects (a great product, by the way) but upgraded when I noticed the fallacies of being totally disconnected, compared to running an off-road purpose swaybar.
If I had a complaint on the SwayLOC, it would be that I did lose some turning radius while making full lock left turns. The SwayLOC’s dual rate function requires it to have 2 arms on the passenger’s side and I used to rub on the lever while turning. Multiple washers on the steering stop did remedy the rubbing issue.
While others are used to the extra sway while using the Antirock, I do find myself subject to seasickness while experiencing the exaggerated sway. The SwayLOC addresses this issue for me.
If you are thinking of going with a dual rate bar, I recommend waiting for SAVVY’s dual rate bar which hopefully will be released this year.
