It is an r & R. I jsut did it on a 97 ZJ.
The addco bar had everything needed to convert the upper links, (which you probably already have since you have qd's) and everything went into the factory positions.


Did I just repeat myself......?

I recently replaced my end links and frame bushings on my 95 orvis , frt , and rear , I thought it was a major improvement over the old ones and brought my ride and handling back to "normal" , and I`m lifted 4.5" . Not sure what you did to bend your sway bar , but I`d swap it out for the older 93-5 style w/o the ball joint style end links that aren`t prone to breaking . It`s cheap , doesn`t squeak , requires no maintenence and very easy swap . I`ve read lots about the Addco bars , I`m sure they are great , in fact , I was about to order some until I tried replacing the bushings and end links on the factory bars . Now , I just don`t see them making enough improvment to me to warrant the 300+ i`d have to spent . I really have no issues with the stock set-up , most likely just needs to be freshened up like anything that old . You asked for opinions , thats my

Added: John , you got your post in while I was writing , just a question , were your bushings and end links worn out . I ask because , I`m still interested in Addcos , but wondering if anyone had a fresh stock set-up before switching for a real good comparison

The addco makes cornering so tight that you'd think you are driving a sports car...

Kidding aside, it reduces body roll so much compared to the stock ones, that it is well worth it.
I am not one to be changing lanes at 70 mph on a lifted truck on 33's, but since I am in Miami, I have to be prepared for the continuous influx of new drivers whose previous ride was a bicycle with wooden wheels.
