Benefit of Currie anti rock over quick discos?

Well i was thinking about posting this in my last thread, but i figured it might be better to get a new topic. So, what is the advantage of having the currie anti rock sway bar system over a set of quick discos?

You don't have to disconnect the links. And your sway bar adds a level of stability, but in stock form it's far too stiff. That's why you disconnect it. The AntiRock gives you the added stability without impending on articulation. You'll get a bit more body roll on the road but it's nothing major.

So would this not be the best ideal setup for a daily driver?

depends on your budget and the practicality of spending that much, i can say while my TJ was a DD i had disco's and IMO disco's are disco's they are all going to do their job while connected and all are going to be a PITA sometimes while taking them off on the trail and then putting them back on. with that said, if you have the money i would opt for the anti-rock or a comparable item.

BTW, i ran JKS Quicker Disco's and RE Gen II disco's and out of those two, i would go with the RE Gen II again (but i don't run a anti-swaybar anymore )

It's certainly not bad. I prefer a little less body roll on the road for now. But if someone gave me an AR, I'd certainly take it.

My TJ is a daily driver and my Antirock is set to its loosest setting. Sure there's a bit more body roll than a sports car would have but it's no big deal. I drive it like a Jeep and not a 350Z so it's fine for me.

Offroad, it's far better than either being completely disconnected or having the front swaybar connected as the front & rear suspensions can work together instead of fighting each other as they will when the antiswaybar(s) are disconnected.

Never disconnect or remove the rear antiswaybar.

Don't just consider it. Buy it. It's one of those no-brainer Jeep purchases that once you buy it and run it (on and off-road), you'll see, feel and know the worth. It's in the top 3 of the best add-ons that I've ever done to my heep.

For a very basic example drive a go-kart, then drive a van. Take a pretty sharp corner in both. That'll show you body roll.

That's not EXACTLY the best definition, but it'll work.

EDIT: Or better yet, go ahead and disconnect your anti-swaybar and drive around the block (carefully).

My TJ came with the antirock. I drive it to and from work and it's great and living in Orange county anywhere I go wheeling is a 2+ hour drive. The antirock is on it's softest setting and it drives fine and it's lifted 5" on 35s. It drives a hell of a lot nicer than my YJ ever did, though that's not so much the sway bar. From what I understand it actually helps your offroad traction by putting some pressure on your front end.

Alright.. so.. now i need to start looking at priceing.. is there any single site out there cheaper then quadratec at $299.99? Also.. is there any thing that needs to be modified on my jeep to install this.. because i don't have any sort of grinders/cutting tools.. just simple hand tools. I saw in one of the reviews from the previous post that they had to modify their bumper or something to get the torsion bar to fit correctly
