Bluesman Home made disco's <$7
Weld the washer so they don't wear thin over time.

WranglerHawg The first time i wheeled my jeep after i lifted it, i didn't disonnect the sway bars, thinking it wouldn't make that big of a difference (I used to drive a leaf sprung F-250 on 44s with no flex). The next time, (and every time since then), i disconnect them, and WOW, what a difference. It is seriously like night and day the stuff i can go through with the links disconnected.

SurfnSnow x2 on the Anti-rock from currie. it does give added flex without the need to go under and reconnect the links after each run. I know skyjacker just came out with their sway bar that disconnets via a lockable hub.

The second will be with an Anti-rock and 35's.

EDIT: I have no idea why my pics are showing as links instead of the actual picture.
thats a pretty sweet setup! your gettin some good flex

bluvikng AntiRocks are the cats meow..........they give you full articulation, without having to disconnect anything........the best money you will spend on your Jeep!!!!!!!!!!

SurfnSnow This is a great thread. It'd be cool if who have either installed disco's or anti-rocks to post up before and after shots to show how much articulation can change from being stock

Perfect Case for Disco or Locker

Pardon me for hijacking a photo one of our members posted, but a lot of new Jeep people ask about whether to diconnect the front sway bar or to add a front locker, and the "what" or "why" of it. This photo illustrates the situation perfectly.



Even w/ only moderate articulation the front axle of this sway barred TJ has exceeded the ability of the front tires to remain in contact w/ the ground. If no locker is installed on the front differential, this Jeep just became a 2wd vehicle!

Disconnecting the front bar would allow the right tire to drop (and the left one to rise) and both would make contact w/ the ground, regaining traction.

If this gent has a front locker (lunchbox or otherwise) the left front is STILL pulling, and not spinning as it would w/ and open differential. With an open differential, the left front would be providing zero torque to the ground when the rift front is off the ground, of course.

In fact, since the right front tire is not blurred in the photo tells me the vehicle is stopped, the shutter speed was fast enough to stop the spinning mortion of the right tire, or a locker is fitted (so the tire is turning the same slow speed as the left one)
