Then what keeps the swaybar from falling down?

I had quick disconnects for about a month. Drove my jeep for a week without them hooked up and decided i didn't need a sway bar at all and unbolted it and scrapped it. I don't regret it one bit. My jeep is plenty stable without it, honestly is probably more stable than yours with sway bars hooked up. Antirocks are nice but the price tag is too damn high for what it is.

Well after this week I will at least be able to disconnect my swaybar offroad. I'll try driving on the road disconnected and see how I feel about it.

I could not disagree more. I ran with no front swaybar for about 6 months. I was perfectly fine with it. Then I bought my antirocks. It is night and day different, I will never wheel without them. The front antirock is worth every penny. The rear antirock is nice, but a front antirock and stock rear swaybar still works pretty damn good.

I agree with the fact that an antirock handles really nice on road. i'm about to go outside and lift up the tires to see how much I can get it to flex

I would much rather spend that 350 bucks towards a 3 link. Longer arms will give you alot more stability and better road behavior. There are so many things you could buy for your jeep for 350 bucks that will help it more. Yes i don't have one so I don't have personal input on how great it actually is, but my jeep works absolutely great as is so I don't see myself spending that kind of money on one soon.

I'll agree on the "there are better ways to spend $350." Because I'll definitely be getting a front locker, armor, a rear axle, and probably 4:10 gears before I think about antirock.

That sounds like a good plan.

I love my Antirock and even though my wife and I share our money I am glad she bought it instead of me. I still never would have brought myself to click "purchase" on something so small which is that expensive.

You are arguing a point I never made. I never said it should be his first priority, I never even recommended it to him. There are absolutely more important things for him to buy. I was just disagreeing when you said an antirock wasnt worth the money.

Plus I didnt pay anywhere close to $350 for mine.

I'll be getting an alignment done here in a couple days or so. What should my toe in be?
