Re: currie anti-rock????

its a WEAK swaybar. make one out of a cheap torsion bar if you want to go that direction.

Re: currie anti-rock????

Sorry, I don't have one, but here's my thoughts anyway.
On Road: They aren't as stable as a standard swaybar.
Off Road: They aren't as loose as no swaybar.

I haven't had mine connected since my first trip offroad. It's my DD and I really don't miss it. I'm not recommending this to others, just stating what I do.
If you want the swaybar for on road, it isn't that hard to remove for wheeling or get/make disco's.
Just my uneducated opinion.

Re: currie anti-rock????

To make one measure the distance between frame rails. Go to the junk yard get a torsin bar that lenght and have the junk yard just out both key ways in the frame. Then make it look like a currie anti rock. That should atleast get you thinking.

Re: currie anti-rock????

I wondered the same thing, so I called Currie and discussed it with them. I do not run a sway bar on my CJ7. It has sway which you have to watch on the street, but nothing careful driving won't contain.



My first question to Currie: There are lots of comp rigs with these bars, what in the world to they need them for if they don't drive on the street?

Answer: To control the tires during hard core rockcrawling. Apparently they start to hop and do funny things with real soft springs, so they need them to keep more stable on the rocks. My interpretation: I don't need them for this, ok next.



2nd question to Currie: If I run no swaybar on the street and am OK with it, why do I need this:

A2: You don't. If you run no sway bar and are happy, you don't need the antirock on the street.


Final conclusion for ME: If you want some sway bar protection on the street which does not limit flex offroad, the anti-rock is your best option (excluding diconnects, which are a pain). If you can live without the sway bar on the street, even better, you save $$ and no complicated fabbing.

my 2 cents

Re: currie anti-rock????

My thing is, if it works in competition, It works for me. My Jeep doesnt see too much pavement anymore, but as soon as I do my axle swap and custom 4 link everything, im going to try and fit their anti rock kits on the front and rear. As far as someones rig who is driven daily, i have a friend who as an anti rock kit in the front of his TJ and a larger ADDCO swaybar in the rear and he swears by them, his jeep is on 35's with 6 inches of lift and that thing is stable as hell off road. And he drives it daily and says hes had no problems. Of course you cant take it through a road course going 50 mph, but hey, its a Jeep, you should have known that when you bought it.

Re: currie anti-rock????

Forget the Anti Rock already! It only takes a couple minutes to connect and disconnect the sway bar right now with your JKS's... leave well enough alone...
