Parsonsm Thanks all, this will be very helpful.

TJDave Stock D35 swaybar on Rubi D44. Currie 3" extended sway bar links. They bolt to the frame just above and behind stock upper control arm mount.
Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics!

Imped Bar brackets bolt to existing mounts that are welded to the axle housing tubes. The links simply attach the sway bar to the frame. If the links don't come with the factory upper and lower bolts, you'll want to go get some from the dealer.

Parsonsm Sorry, just saw where the bar connects to the axle.
09-06-2013 09:44 AM
Parsonsm So the brackets that bolt to the frame connect to the underside of the frame correct? Would love to see on in place if anyone has some good pics. Thanks for all the help.
09-06-2013 09:43 AM
Parsonsm Great thanks. Yea, I think I am going to need longer links as I have a good amount of lift.

Jerry Bransford Installing an antiswaybar is nothing more than bolting it into place. You need a pair of rear brackets to hold it to the rear axle, swaybar links to connect between the sides of the axle & the swaybar ends, and the nuts & bolts. Once you see it and find the mounting bolt holes on the axle, on either side of the pumpkin, mounting it will be a piece of cake.

Here's the whole thing used from eBay...

The two center brackets bolt to the axle, the two rusty brown-looking links bolt to the antiswaybar bolt holes on the axle. 8 bolts, four nuts.

Parsonsm Ok I found a local guy who has a stock one that will work so I am thinking on that. Can't find much on how to install it though. Any help is appreciated.

TJDave When I swapped out my D35 for a Rubi D44, I just moved my stock rear swaybar over to the d44.
All the mounting points were same.
I am not sure what other model Jeep sway bars are interchangeable. Maybe something to research and find at a wrecking yard for a quick fix.

While I love a rear torsion bar setup like the AR, it's definitely not a 'must have' in your case. Wheel the Jeep for a while and when you have an extra $400 burning a hole in your pocket and you understand the benefits over the stocker then go for it.

They make a bolt on one for the rear now. So can't be too hard.

pyrilampes Lower your standards and get a fat chick. Have her sit either on the left or right in the back (out of sight) that will stabilize the jeep and take out some of the vehicle roll.
09-05-2013 08:13 AM
PStov98TJ It is sort of a safety issue if you like to drive like a maniac. Just know you've got a sway bar missing and drive accordingly until you can get one on there.
09-05-2013 08:11 AM
Parsonsm Just confirmed that there is no RSB or links down there. Looks like that is my next project. Just hope this is not too hard of an install, does not look to be. Any tips appreciated. Man, I have had this thing up on the interstate a few times, hope it has not been too much of a safety issue.

Imped He's gonna say, "I did it for more flex man."

And if he does, he doesn't know what he's talking about.
09-05-2013 07:45 AM
Parsonsm Ok, heading out and under the jeep this morning to see if one is there. If not, going to contact the PO and get the history on why it was removed.

Contrary to popular belief, the rear Currie AR in the TJ-specific kit is stiffer than the factory sway bar.

It's very, very friendly on and off the road.

TJDave That's your body roll problem. I would re install one before messing with a bunch of other stuff.

That's a common (and many, like myself, consider it a necessity) suspension component for vehicles with coil springs and link suspensions. It's also a big chunk of the reason for your body roll.
