Anyone running Teraflex Dual Rate S/T front Swaybar?
 
Please don't shoot a JK guy posting in the TJ area but I po9sted this in the JK section and got no response. When I Googled them I found a Teraflex video on Youtube installing them on a TJ so I thought I'd ask you guys.

I've been looking into a beter alternative to crawling under the front of my rig to disconnect my swaybar links before I hit the trail. :cool:

The Teraflex JK Forged Dual Rate S/T Swaybar caught my attention. I found some feedback from late last year about the main rod breaking due to manufacturing defects. :facepalm:

Does anyone have these installed, and if so, how do you like them? :confused:

i've been going back & forth on this one. most replies say that it is a waste of money. everyone said the Currie anti rock is the way to go. but what i didn't like is the previous owner of my TJ had it on & said it gave more body roll than the stock sway bar.

every kind that i looked into says that it will give more body roll than the stock bar. TeraFlex was the only one that said the same.

i ended up ordering mine & hopefully it will be processed & shipped soon. i know everyone will say i just wasted my money, but i think it will be easier for me to disconnect & not have to worry about zip ties & struggling with putting everything back on & not have to worry about handling on road/body roll.


edit: just saw you were also referring to the dual rate. i just ended up ordering the single rate.

I'd love feedback on either one. :angel:

Looking forward to hearing about it. :thumb:

If you're looking for the off-road functionality of the Anti-Rock but want the heavier on-road sway bar retained, I'd look into the ORO SwayLOC. Long story short, the Tereflex version is a rip-off of ORO's SwayLOC; after hearing of Tereflex's business practices, I'll never buy a product from them:

ORO's business model isn't exactly shining either though, so it's kind of a lesser of two evils thing if you absolutely need a dual-rate bar.

That being said, I personally run an Anti-Rock and have not experienced any decrease in on-road handling. Blaine from Savvy (the original creator of the SwayLOC) was supposedly working on an improved dual-rate sway bar, but I haven't heard anything regarding that in quite some time. I'll stick with my Anti-Rock for now; if Blaine ever decides to release a new dual-rate bar I'll probably run that.

Thanks. I'll look into it.
