geiman I wouldn't have any issue either and don't; I run a set of the steel myself although I do wish I had gotten the aluminum ones. Like I said I haven't heard of any real issues with the AR, so I would imagine this is something like you said; there is more to the story than what we're hearing. Doesn't really surprise me.

Even if there was a genuine problem I know Currie would take care of you, I've had nothing but great experiences working with them. Darrel, Travis and Lorraine at Currie all have gone above and beyond for me more than a few times.

Don in Arizona is the only case of a broken AR arm that I know of. He made it a personal campaign to slam Currie about it on every board he could find repeatedly. I talked to John Currie about it and when it first broke, they were out of stock and offered up a replacement steel arm until the aluminum versions got finished.

I'm still not convinced that the arm wasn't pushed too close to the frame and got hung on the bolt while the tire was coming up and the arm got badly twisted. I've done the same to my steel arm and it wasn't pretty, but steel is more forgiving and can be twisted back which I did.

I would have no issue running any of their arms.

Mortalis5509 I was reading on Rubicon Owners Forum and they had mentioned people breaking those AL anti rock arms. I'm not aganist AL at all, matter of fact I'm wanting to change my bumper to AL and maybe my skid if I ever stop spending money.
11-16-2011 03:19 PM
geiman I would be curious to see the difference. I went straight from stock uppers and POS fixed lowers to the Savvy aluminum CAs so I don't have a good grasp of how heavy arms like the Rokmen ones are.
11-16-2011 03:17 PM
freeskier Who's the one with the soft spot?

Also, I would have to say if you compared the beefy Rokmen control arms to the Savvy aluminum ones the weight savings would be a bit more substantial. Especially when you factor in all 8 arms.
11-16-2011 02:29 PM
Imped Confused.....

I guess a nerve was hit.
11-16-2011 02:25 PM
geiman Lol, no soft spot. I guess I just expect people to have a bit thicker skin than that.

Poor and dumb were neither good excuses to not understand why aluminum is primo compared to steel in the offroading world, and that it can and will take the abuse you can throw at it. Theres no need to buy into it, its facts.

The less your rig weighs, the better its going to be on the trail. That all goes back to gravity and physics and well, thats another story

geiman It's already been given those years to prove itself by many, including the guys over at Savvy. Ignorance isn't an excuse.

Good luck.

Forged?

Learn a few things about materials, ultimate/tensile/yield strength, do the comparisons, and make a decision. There's no reason to "wait a couple years".....the research and 'proving' has already been done. Guys (the smart ones) have been running aluminum armor (belly pans, corners, rocker guards, bumpers) for years in the toughest stuff you can wheel. It holds up fine and weighs nothing.

For example--my full Rokmen aluminum corners weigh 11 lbs a piece with all hardware. I've used them as a pivot point and have laid the entire driver's side over on a rock. The tub is still perfectly straight and the corners needed some paint. Nothing more.

Plus it's great seeing everyone's face scrunch up when you say you've got aluminum protecting your vehicle instead of steel.

geiman For weight? I would imagine so. I have the aluminum ones from Savvy and they are very very nice, I have no complaints. I haven't compared their weight to a regular steel control arm, but I wouldn't imagine it would have much; I could be wrong though. Savvy can hook you up with steel, aluminum, double adjustable, regular adjustable, etc...
11-16-2011 12:36 AM
KidRock171 What about aluminum control arms? (Quick hijack sorry) getting Rokmen arms with JJ's but currie has aluminum arms now. Negligible?

It's easy and save your 60 bucks because it is not worth it.
11-15-2011 05:33 PM
geiman As far as I understand the weight savings really are negligible, they're mainly there for looks.

And it's a very straightforward install; mine probably took less than an hour start to finish.

geiman I would say most people put it at one setting and leave it there, at least that's what I do. I have mine in the second to last setting when counting from the left (the second most loose setting). Not having to fool with it before and after wheeling is one of the benefits to having the Anti-Rock.

It's not hard to change which setting you wish to use, but it does require removing and then reinstalling a nut, so it might be 5 minutes worth of work. I can honestly say that I have never really noticed the AR making my Jeep more loose feeling on the road so I really wouldn't worry about it. But, if you would prefer a more stock like sway bar for on the street you can look into the SwayLOC. It "locks and unlocks" to give you the stiffness of the stock sway bar on the street, and the benefits of the Anti-Rock off road. But it's considerably more money, so keep that in mind. It wasn't worth the extra cash to me, so I went with the traditional AR, and I couldn't be more happy. I honestly can't see wanting it to be any stiffer for on the street.

Good info on the link. The disco has been one of the best mods I have made (could really tell the difference) I have heard lots of good things about the Currie and spent some time on their website. It has 5 different settings, Do most people keep it on the same one? Or would you change it for a day of off roading and back again when you are on the street? How hard is it to change settings? Same as discos? I have to say that can be a pain...
11-13-2011 12:54 PM
Imped While the rear AR isn't 'needed', it's definitely an upgrade over stock. With its heavier rate, it'll handle better on the road and force the front AR to work more.

Just the front. The rear OE antiswaybar is fine as is.

No you can just get the front or just the rear.

Both Antirocks were set to their loosest settings so even at their loosest setting, they are still fine. No worries at all, drive it like a Jeep and not a sports car and you'll be fine.

I love my AR. Mine is on the last setting and it is perfect for the road. I had it on the middle setting and found it too stiff for driving off road. If you are worried about the handling start in the middle and move in the direction you think you need to go.
