Anyone used currie anti rock sway bar on a YJ

Ive rode in a TJ with a currie anti rock sway bar. They worked nice it made me wonder if anyone had tried them out on a YJ?

Yes I have one on my SOA YJ. Highly recommend it.

Just a matter of doing the bushings that fit in the cross tube. Simple install.

Could you post some picture of it? Did you use a universal kit or a TJ kit? How does it work on the road my YJ still see some highway drive time?

Installed a Currie AntiRock meant for a TJ on my SOA YJ.
The end result was a big reduction in body side to side sway on uneven pavement and body lean in turning was also reduced.

Overall a thumbs up. My highly scientific testing was done with the AntiRock in the next to stiffest setting. The softest setting had the YJ acting as no AntiRock was installed at all.

The bushings that Currie supplies had to be turned down a bit to fit in the front frame tube of the YJ. Guessing the bushings are made of UHMW plastic as they were pretty tough. A lathe would make this a simple task but some patience and a big ass file will also work.

Once the bushings are installed the rod itself is pushed through. Although close, an extra 1/4 or so additional rod length would be nice. But it does work.

The supplied heims are mounted to the Currie arms. Then I mounted the lower heims to the SOA spring plates. Used a combination of some small scrap steel pieces to make a lower eye similar to a shock mount.

Only other mod was to trim the front bumper were it covers the round frame tube. Depending on what bumper you have this may not be required.

Worth the $325 TYD and the time and effort to install ? I`d say yes.

See if you pick out the Currie in my profile pictures.

I cut-n-pasted this from a post I made in Pirate a couple years ago. Still think it is a great product.
