Wj Hello, is it nessesary to replace also the fron sway bar with ADDCO

Hello everybody,

In a stock WJ overland 2003 do you think it will make a difference replacing the front sway bar too with the addco? or i will be ok with the rear replacement only?

Will there be any noted difference between front + rear and rear only?


Thank you all

Nik

What's the issue you are trying to fix? Are you lifted? If so, details.

Rear is the most significant difference over stock. The front OEM unit is already pretty beefy. I would not bother with the front.
Keep in mind that I also do not have the Addco front, so I cannot say from experience, just from the spec and other's notes about the front Addco.

If you're at stock height and not planning on a lift start with just replacing the sway bar bushings or even upgrading them. I have a 4" lift and replacing those on the rear made a heck of a difference. My Jeep had 130k on it when I replaced them and they were shot.

If you're wanting it to handle like a race car then you should probably look at changing your platform.

The larger sways are really only meant to correct body sway when lifted. However, you could probably have marginal benefits at stock height too..

Good luck. I agree with the other post.. work on the rear first.
