Front srt8 sway bar

Hi all, I have a moded superlift installed in my wk giving around 5" of lift, I know that you can install the rear srt8 sway bar to limit body roll, improve handling, and limit the down travel, but what about the front? Can I install the front srt8 sway bar and improve handling and limit the down travel in the front suspension?

Not sure the srt SB will work with your lifted geometry.

Curious, why lift it if you wanna limit down travel?

Running a rear addco swaybar and a SRT front, you're going to need longer links to get the geometry right for that swaybar to be effective. I'm running Bwoody links for a 2" lift- they're made longer than they should be so they could work for a 3" and be more effective. So if you go that route, have them make you a set for 4" of lift

I was planing on adding jba quick disco with the srt8 front sway bar I just want to reduce body roll in highways because here in Venezuela the highways aren't in great shape and sometimes we have to make sudden turns do to big holes, some vehicles rollover or destroy entire suspensions because of the holes in the highway, I broke a lca, a uca, and the left strut in my wk.

Yeah I was going 120km/h that is the average speed in the highways here wen I went through the hole everyone told me that I didn't roll over thanks to the jeep because a land cruiser the day before rolled over.
