Rear Sway Bar

Okay, so I've been driving without my rear sway bar for about 2 years now, and since my Jeep is now seeing mostly street use here at college I've decided to put it back in for better handling. I know of all the dangers associated with driving without the rear sway bar so don't try and crucify me for that. My questions are, where's the best place to get the rear sway bar from? I've seen most Addco bars going for around $170+. Also, who makes the longest sway bar links?

I'd PM Kolak for an Addco bar and links.

That's even bigger than Adcco IIRC . 3/4" does a nice job on the rear . Firm but doesn't sacrifice much in the ride . Not sure you would want/need stiffer . Price seems good enough to want to try it though . Can't be that much different .

I'm running that Hellwig rear sway bar on my '98 ZJ - I didn't have the entire kit that you linked, but it came with the bar (obviously) and the bushings. I picked it up new from a guy selling his on CL that he never installed. I'm very happy with it, for what it's worth.

Thanks! I'm going to order it soon.
