TJ Flex ?

I set some land scaping bricks up yesterday to see what type of flex I could get out of her stock TJ. It did better then I thought lifting the driver side front tire about 24"! I then tried my buddies TJ with a 4" Superlift and 33" tires and it bairly did the same! I expected it to do much better! They both still had the sway bars connected. If I took the time to disconect the would there be a big differance in max flex between the two then? Thanks Team Gooddogs!

Re: TJ Flex ?

I know on my CJ there is a HUGE difference in how much the front will flex with/without the swaybar.

Re: TJ Flex ?

disconet the sway bars, i once was wheeling with my sway bars connected be cause it was about 10* and i was lazy and that day i drove up on the hood of a car, well i got up but couldn't get down beacuse i only had 2 wheels touching with the jeep doing a teator toter thing and open diffs and had to get pulled off of it. If i had my sway bars disconected i would have been fine, they make a huge differance, now i've give away my discos and the rear is sitting in my garage, i really don't see much of a point of them now that i have some firmer shocks. You just have to get used to drving with out them.

Re: TJ Flex ?

My YJ flexed quite a bit better without a front swaybar(no rear one). It flexes a LOT better now that it's SOA without a swaybar[img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] But I really need to fab the sucker back in and get some quick disconnects, cause the body roll is HORRIBLE!!! Along with the axle wrap, and the bumpy ride, and the short shocks in the rear, and the leaky roof, and the primered corner panel, and the.....
