Sway bars

What is Everyone using for sway bars I need to replace mine bushings rubbed channels into them and the front seems bent. I am looking at the Hellwig Suspension 7866 Front 1-1/4" Sway Bar does anyone run this and can I use my JKS disconnects?

Antirock up front and stock in the rear. The antirock isnt that cheap though. If you want cheap, then replace your worn out bushings.
Ironhead Jed and meatsock like this.

The stock bar should be approximately 1-3/16" diameter but I'm down to about an 1-1/8" at this point. I found undersize bushings that are about 1" diameter and fit nice and snug and should do a nice job of firming everything up.

Being made from spring steel I would be totally surprised if the front antiswaybar is bent. My rear antiswaybar is the OE factory.

Same, I finally switched to the antirock a few months ago too, very happy with it so far. Iím pretty surprised by how much I prefer it on road now after driving it a while.

Another vote for Antirock up front, OEM in the rear. Feels so much more stable it is hard to believe. Wish I would have done it sooner.

Reason for thinking it was bent just installed quick disconnects and on side is much shorter than the other my Jeep sit about 1/2 inch lower on passenger side but the passenger side disconnect is about an inch shorter. But when I installed the new sway bar bushing I didnít think to see if it was flat.

Bushings are new but the sway bar still has a fair amount of play due to the channels rubbed in them.
