Absolutely positive. The extra weight makes a big difference in the way it handles. For the positive IMO.

Add weight would hold different down more which in turn would make it slightly different. I understand. It just confuses me, on a solid axle one side goes up the other side has to go down. Well the way it seems that this wont let it work like that. There bar has spines and the females on the arms to hold each other. So the bar twisted then? That seem like it would break eventually or the splines would round off.

Its in 3 parts, visialise it twisting letting your wheels travel more versus a solid sway bar that holds them more together. You always see the front where those splines are. That doesnt move. however on the bacj but there is a flex joint (not the technical term).

Actually its 5. A solid piece that goes into the frame, not over it like your stock swaybar. Allowing for a winch to fit lower and tighter to the body, making it more stable and efficient. That has those splines that attach solidly to the flat piece with the decal. that attaches to another bar that goes to the suspension. The movement occurs mostly at that joint.

Antirocks are awesome offroad. Whenever I know I won't be wheeling for a while I switch mine over to the tightest setting, which is almost as good as stock. For the trail I use the loosest setting. Lower control arms would also be a good buy.

I saved up to do all 8 of my CAs with my AR and lift. I had a bit of a DW and figured the CAs were the culprit. They were, bushings were shot.

God, so many acronyms!

Well I bought a few things for now. I got some kicker 5.25 and dash adapters, have some left over poly-fill so now I can finish my sound upgrades. Also got my OME steering stabilizer and my hydro graphing kit. Im going to go the covers for my speakers in the sound pod and the center section around the dash for starters. Just a start for now since I am at school I would be having a lot of time to do things
