|Imped||I've currently got mine on the stiffest setting, ie the furthest forward hole. This is due to how I've got my rear sway bar set up--long story short, I had to modify my arm bars due to my modified rear frame and the longest I could make it is 13" (center of bar to center of rod end). That's 3" shorter than it comes from Currie. Therefore, it's stiffer. So I stiffened the front bar to help match. I should still be able to use all of my shock travel and it handles awesome on the road.|

The AR is just a simple torsion bar that twists. The more leverage on the bar, the softer its effective rate. The further away the links attach to the bar arms, the more leverage is imparted on the bar and, therefore, the softer the rate is. The softer the rate, the less it will counter body roll. There are 5 holes on the arm bars that come with the basic TJ kit.
For anyone that doesn't have a clue how this stuff works, it's absurdly simple. Go watch the video on Currie's website, go look at pictures, and apply what you learned back in high school physics. It should all click just fine.

Hey there Imped, I was wondering what this adjustable connetion point to the antirock is all about. I hear people saying they are fully loss or mid setting or something to that effect. Does this make the antirock behave diff on the road and thats why people change the settings on in. Yes I am a Noob at this. Just learning this because I want to do it right the first time.
I must say though, you are so funny when you are commenting on Iwannaoffroad threads.
I had so many chuckles looking up his threads..... Im not sure anyone can make that stuff up.

I understand how this stuff works. Therefore, I would never recommend not running a rear sway bar under a linked rig. I run a rear AR.

The AntiRock is stupid simple which is the beauty of it.

Don't over think it; read the instructions and I'm sure your question will be answered:

So here is a question that I am sure will get answered in the instructions but since I have not ordered the AR yet but will in the next 2 weeks would like to know.
When installing the links will using the current ones as a guide suffice in making the proper adjustments work for the AR links?

Jerry, I was thinking more like...
it is linked though, anyway, sorry for the hi-jack.

Similar to an Antirock but with a dual rate

|calkid||Here's a picture of my TJ with the Antirock installed. It works great off road with minimal body roll as a DD.|

|jkaufman_95||Well the Antirock looks about right from that picture, maybe just a rare defect.|

This is my front AR now bummer .

|MillerFam||Purchased my Antirock after a ton of research on this forum and others. Brown Santa drops it off today!|

|Gary2||I have learned from race cars adjustability is important to have and not requiring a lot of time to do it. I have given myself a few adjustable options so far to keep my body roll and ride more than acceptable between the AR and the Rancho 9000XLs . I have found if I set the AR stiffer the jeep rocks back and forth quickly on uneven roads. I soften the AR settings and it reduced that effect but will lean a little more making sharp turns naturally. I have it pretty well down now to one notch stiffer on the Ranchos for winter with Hard top and full doors on and all is good again and leave the AR setting alone at next to the softest setting .... so far. I think the adjustable shocks are a nice match for the AR especially if you have many different uses for your Jeep or you are like me and can't leave anything alone to long.|

|Jerry Bransford||The proper angle for the Antirock arms is simply just above horizontal... somewhere around 15 degrees is fine but there is no need to use an angle finder to try to get it exactly at 15 degrees.|

You can trim the links so that they're the proper height for your lift (or lack there of) height.

|MarkNog||The physics of the antirock make it much better than disconnecting. Man may argue that it limits the articulation of the axle but in reality it stops the axle from fighting with the opposite side. By controlling the articulation it controls the axle in a more "smart" manner.|
