Hey lump, how is your sway loc holding up? I'm bout to get the RC 2.5" lift mated to 32x11.5R16 tires and RC dual steering stabilizer. I was about to order some quick disco's bout found your thread. Any updates for us that have never driven w/ a sway-loc or anti-rock?
Lump? I think you're talking to me so . . .
The SwayLOC is holding up better than the Anti-rock.
With the Anti-rock I had problems with the arms loosening up where they clamped on to the torsion rod splines. Don't know what it was but I could never get the bolts tight enough to completely lock down the arms. SO there'd always be some play there. And this is something that I've noticed on every single other Anti-rock that I've run across (I've personally encountered about 7-8 rigs in the NW running the Anti-rock). Every single one . . . loose arms.
Now, the SwayLOC has been installed now for about as long as I had the Anti-rock on. No slop at all. Arms are still clamped nice and tight around the splines. Part of it could be that the SwayLOC "spline clamps" are thicker than the Anti-rock equivalent by about 1/8" or so. I don't doubt the extra materials helps in this regard.
Also, not sure what it is but the heim joints on the SwayLOC set up are also holding up much better. The races in the Anti-rock joints wore out a bit so everything made a jiggling / rattling noise after some time.
Everything on the Anti-rock still functioned well, but was just a bit looser and a bit noisier.
In comparison, the SwayLOC feels as tight and solid as it did when it was installed brand new 2 years ago.
And for what it's worth, the new improvements to the SwayLOC that have come out since I bought mine (which was version 2) look like they are worth the price bump. Mine is still work'n great but for anyone buying the new version . . . cool.
