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.

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.
Thank you very much, you answered my question perfectly. You may have said before but what setting do you have yours at?

SS Adrenaline 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.
Cheers.

After reading this thread, what do you think?

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.

I've built my TJ to be the ultimate in double duty--anyone can build a great-performing trail rig, but can you build it to hold up well enough to drive it to and from the trail at 75mph with one hand on the wheel? To and from work the entire next week? That's what I enjoy doing just to show my confidence in the parts used and how it's set up. Without the AR, my ride on-road would be too bouncy/unpredictable (the stock sway bar is WAY TOO STIFF) and I wouldn't be wheeling where I do now.....no way in hell.

The stock sway bar is a hindrance. If you want to retain that handicap, go right ahead. If you're content on the bunny hills, you'll be happy with being disconnected. If you want to improve the rig and wheel where your particular tire size is a necessity, unbolt the stock sway bar and replace it with a proper torsion sway bar.
Hey imped do you have a rear swaybar on your rig or just the antirock up front?

I was over thinking it and ended up exchanging some emails with currie to figure it out. Then went that was easy.

Diverdown87 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?
05-30-2012 11:17 PM
-sean- Jerry, I was thinking more like...



it is linked though, anyway, sorry for the hi-jack.

IslandTJ SwayLoc...

Similar to an Antirock but with a dual rate

05-30-2012 09:59 PM
calkid Here's a picture of my TJ with the Antirock installed. It works great off road with minimal body roll as a DD.
05-30-2012 09:53 PM
jkaufman_95 Well the Antirock looks about right from that picture, maybe just a rare defect.

Yeah you're right on the Every Man Challenge part of the KOH but for the actual KOH race that takes place on Friday, I sure don't recall any that didn't have coils or coil overs. Well, I guess that little Toyota truck that came in dead last and made me stay at my Checkpoint until 11:20 that night until he passed through probably had rear leafs and IFS. So far as the serious competitors, I don't recall any leaf spring suspensions passing through my check point.

htkrph i want one. its on my list of upgrades!

I was just going up a trail by my house and POP! it went. I also run a rear AR with 12" travel front & 11" rear walker Evans shocks. I still like the AR setup over disco setup any day.

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.

Mine is exactly as stated above Jerry but........when I'm at full droop on the drivers side the antirock bar gets hung up the huge power steering bolt....do i need to grind it down (the bolt)?

Read this to see why you want the arms where they should be:

http://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/anti...son-93309.html

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.
