Swapped out my Anti-Rock Arms for 2" Offset ones, and took it out for some flex testing... works great.









Much more flex, and less binding like I had with the shorter A-R arms.
+Im running out of **** to flex on.

Doesn't look like you're getting much compression (uptravel) on that rear axle...am I wrong or would some softer springs in the back help you out there?

perhaps he could get a stock front ZJ spring from a high milage JEEP, that should be soft enough.

Definitely a good idea to run a rear swaybar - prevents rear-steer. You want that rear axle to stay as aligned as possible.

The swaybar is just that extra bit of support. Think of it as a front-back limiting strap. When you stuff, the axle goes forward. When you droop, the axle goes back. In excessive flex, the rear axle could pivot, causing rear-steer.
