I have seen threads about issues with some aftermarket bumpers blocking the round crossmember that the Antirock and other offroad sway bars use. If I remember right, they just cut off the piece that is blocking the crossmember. I can't seem to find the thread right now for reference. The Antirock bar does live inside of that tube, and it needs to be completely open on both ends for the bushings to fit in to. I'm sure the Swayloc is the same, but I don't have one of those.

And yes, always a pleasure to see Island's avatar.

Thanks Dave - sounds like if I can cut enough of the side mounts away to clear that tube that either one should work.

Want a C. AR but only have a 2.5" lift + 1.25" BL with how long the end links are alot of people having fit problems with minimal lift? Will switch to a 4" and 35's after 33's wear out.

I know this is a rather old thread that has been revived but one question.

Currently the only lift I have on my jeep is a 3" bodilift. Yes I know get rid of it, only mall crawlers run that much bodilift, bla bla bla. Have had it on there for 9 years and kinda liked it.

I will be removing it and going with a 4" short arm and 1" body but for now the first thing will be my gears. Then possibly next year will be the suspension lift.

I want the AR. Will it work with no suspension lift? I would hate to buy it and then have to wait an extra year before installing it.

It will but you have to chop the links so short they won't work with a lift later. You'll need to get new links.

Couldn't the links be custom made and then discarded for use with the ones that came with the kit when the lift is done? Not sure exactly what it would take other than some solid bar stock and heim joints.

Lol, yeah. Reinvent the wheel much? Just get an extra set of Links from Currie, instead of trying to build what they already built.

Yeah I went to their site and saw that you can order up to 14" threaded rod for $15 ea. Wouldn't need anything more than that.

You should, in no way, take any of this personally. It's just business. So to recap, I come in peace, I mean you no harm, and you all will die. Gallaxhar out.

Hey fellow jeepers, I am fixin to install the antirock in my TJ but the instructions do not say anything about which hole to use for the top link. I know which one you usedetermines how stiff the ride is, but do no know which end of the holes is best for DD Vs. best for off raod. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT: Never mind, I found the info. Thanks

I know you said never mind, but...I put mine in the middle hole when I installed it and haven't moved it since. Works great on and off road.

mudder,

I'm looking at the MC aluminum bumper as well. Did you have to make any modifications?

Homemade discos for a 4" lift??

Okay, a while ago I came across a forum that described how a dude lifted his tj 4 inches by simply putting 2" xj coils on the front of the tj , while moving the stock front coils to the rear. Along with 4" shocks and a homemade transfercase drop. He said everything works fine when it comes to track bars, control arms, no motor mount or drop needed, and stock brake lines. BUT he said he doesn't know about the front sway bar because he removed it when he got the jeep. So my question is, IS there a way to make longer discos for my stock sway bar that would work with the lift I plan on doing???? I really dont want run without the front sway bar, and cant afford the anti-rock at the moment.

You're not understanding things.
