Currie Antirock angle TJ

I just bought an antirock for the front, but need help on how to properly set the angle. I have a 3" RCD suspension lift, 1.25" body lift, 1" mml, and 33" tires... I just don't want to set it up wrong and want the opinion of someone who already has one. Thanks guys and jeep on!

I believe there's a Currie recommendation somewhere? But I would think the typical is 10-15 degrees up on the rear of the arms.

This is typical setup. There are arguably theoretical differences in performance based on the angle but they are realistically differences that don't make a difference. As long as the arms don't invert when axle sags or hit fenders when axle stuffs then it will be fine.

@biffgnar @LeeMasterGT, thanks guys. I've heard that 10-15 degress is the way to go I just wanted to make sure and get the best possible performance out of this product I can... I'm going to set it up now and see what happens... Thanks!

FWIW, I have 3" springs. The body lift is not a factor for Antirock set up.
I adjusted the included links as short as they would go.

@TJdaveX thanks for the tip....I set mine up as short as they can go. From the inside of each jam nut I measured a tad over 5in. Have them in the middle setting. Around a 15 degree angle to the frame. (My phone won't let me add a pic). Thanks again. Im anxious to use it at the bantam heritage festival in butler PA this weekend!

I have no hands-on experience with an Antirock, but won't the body lift give additional clearance between the Antirock arm and the fender on the upstroke? So you could run the links an inch or nearly so longer than without a body lift.

Correct. It's the same idea as fitting a slightly larger tire using a body lift. If the arms were to hit the body, I'm pretty sure it would be the front lip of the fender. The BL moves that further away and allows one to cheat a bit on the clearances.

I recently installed an Antirock with 2" of spring lift plus an 1.25" BL. On mine, I still cut 3/4" off of each end of my links, totaling 1.5" just to be safe and to put the arms where they should be. This is why people say that a BL doesn't factor in to the installation, because a BL isn't needed if the links are an appropriate length.

The arms should be at 0 degrees when the suspension is in the middle of its travel.

John Currie talks about this here:

(about 3/4 the way through the video is where the reference to arm angle is)
