I need to get those rear shock extenders on and welded, then new shocks all around. Then I'm ready to wheel again.

Same for made. Made some quick disconnects and kept forgetting to hook them back up. I did find out a couple weeks ago that coming into a turn at about 45 with no sway bar and 9psi in the tires is an adventure.


What extenders do you have? The MORE brackets raise the top, no welding. Just one hole to drill for the locator pin.

They cost about $90 but would be pretty easy to make.

I have something similar, but you have to use a bolt for the shock.
Problem is, the part with the pin does not reach far enough to go into the frame. The stock mount is on a bracket of some sort and the pin touches the frame but isn't long enough to require a hole.
They look basically the same......

I'll never forget the day that I neglected to hook up my quick discos. The YJ doesn't maneuver around rice *******s as quickly without it on

Rik you need to update your Jeep profile

I rode most of the time with my sway bar disconnected before I went antirock. Minor loss in handling wasn't usually worth spending the time to connect back up.

I love the antirock now, took a couple days to get use to the way it handled, but I'll never go back!

Yeah in a TJ or JK the sway bar is important. In a YJ it's dead weight with wide tires and tight steering.

So I modified my shock extenders, now they just need to be welded in place and I can get new shocks.
I cut off the excess on the rear axle u-bolts while I was under there. They hung up on rocks a lot. The were about three inches too long.

Thinking I might fit an anti-rock up front on mine...

Thoughts?

And that's fine. But you won't get any benefit out of antirock
