antirock or discos?

In running 2.5" coils and factory control arms, my factory sway bar end links are shot. Should I invest in antirock or quick discos? Will be running better control arms down the road.

Hummm... It's been a while I guess since this horse was beat.

I run a dual-rate. I will never recommend any of my friends run disco'd ever, period. Anti-rock hands down, no questions asked. Front and rear if you can swing it. If you want best of both worlds, spring for a dual rate setup. Take a look at your suspension and you'll understand why the anti-rock works so well.



Best of Luck,

Mike

I'm DD is 99.999% on the road mainly highways and I liked it with discos better than the antirock. Was a little to squirrley for me at high speeds, which most jeepers aren't going.

Off road anti-rock, hands down by a mile.

THIS!! A dual rate is the best option for a DD. Given the two choices you mentioned, I'd go Antirock.

I would say if you have the cash, get the anti-rock. If you want to run on the cheap until you have cash, or need to spend it elsewhere, just remove the front swaybar.

I ran for 1/2 a year or so with no front swaybar. It's not horrible. and it's alot better offroad than with the bar connected. I like the anti-rock better than no swaybar (both offroad and on), but if you don't have the cash or need to spend it elsewhere, I'd skip the discos and just remove the swaybar until you have cash for anti-rock.

Anti-rock is one of the top mods I've ever done to my Jeep (and I've done PLENTY).

I run it on the 2nd loosest setting and it's just fine at 75mph on the freeway.

I want to upgrade to the anti rock. I don't have any problem with my disconnects but I really want the added stability on the rocks.

AntiRock. I have them front and rear. I live in the Colorado Rockies and most of the roads (actual paved roads) in my area are winding, curvy, mountain roads. I have no complaints. The Jeep is not a Porsche.

I have my front set to the loosest setting. You can always choose to run the front in the stiffest setting if you want.

My junk flexes just as much as it did when I had disco's.

...and because every thread needs a pic

I went from disco's to Antirock. The AR is awesome. Set to the loosest setting, no problems on road.

Antirock or Swayloc.

I had the Antirock and it was awesome for the trails . . . but I didn't like the handling compromise on the street.

So I upgraded to the SwayLOC (2nd generation). And all was awesome. I love that thing. Basically, you get all the benefits of the Antirock on the trail but with a tight, stock-like roll resistance for better handling on the road. And all at the flick of a lever that is significantly faster than farting around with discos. Best of both worlds and worth it's steep price.

Go SwayLOC.

Back when I got mine I couldn't find much if any price difference out there. Look for shipping specials. Last week GenRight was running a free shipping special. May still be going.

***Sorry, it wasn't last week - Doh - It was over Christmas, but the point is the same.
