rear sway upgrade?

So my rear sway bar is practically swinging in the breeze the bushings are so worn out. It's a pretty wimpy looking bar. Should I upgrade to something beefier or just replace the bushings? Recommendations?

Thanks

IMHO, just replace the bushings.

if you spend most of your time on the street and want better feeling in the corners, Steinjager make an upgrade...

I'd prefer not to spend most of my time on the street, but everywhere I go wheeling requires a bit of driving to get there first

This looks like a good find, thanks. I found one they have for a 4" lift. Mine is 3.5" should be fine right?

I'd only upgrade to the stiffer aftermarket rear antiswaybar if your TJ is mostly for street use. A stiffer rear antiswaybar will not work nearly as well offroad.

Not necessarily, Jerry. My rear sway bar (Currie components) has a higher rate than the factory sway bar yet works just fine and allows full travel usage. My front AR is stiffer than the 'standard' one to properly counter this.
