At $600 it is not worth it. The rumor is that savvy has one in the works that is going to cost far less that the ORO kit. I think a lot of jeeps that are daily drivers would benefit from a dual rate sway bar. The only problem is most people including me will not shell out $600 for a sway bar.

I agree mine is a DD I'm considering just removing the rear sway but I don't know how adverse an impact that will have on the road manners or how much benefit I'll get in articulation...would be nice

But your right at 700 dollars that's not something i'll be getting either.


To make the question even easier... What suspension parts list is on that LJ!!! and how well do those coils twist? That looks like a pretty Heavy Duty coil is that what comes in your 4" kit? And are you running any sway bar in the rear?
Its not suppose to be a true disconnect the point of having the anti rock is to provide stiffness when climbing rocks and being off chamber, you want the feedback the torsion bar in the cross member provides.

Why do you think removing the rear bar will have any benefit?

Why in the world would you not want a rear sway bar? You have coil springs--rear sway bars are good. Remove it--you won't like it.

i know its not the same, but my geo metro doesnt have a rear sway bar, it rusted off. It doesnt corner good at all anymore(not that it did great before). I wouldnt consider taking my rear sway bar off, i would however consider getting a Currie antirock for the rear (of the jeep).

am I wrong in thinking the rear sway bar limits articulation of the rear axle?

Instead of making assumptions, why don't you put the frame on jackstands and remove both tires. Then lower the axle to whatever limits the droop be it trackbar bind, shocks, or swaybar links pulling straight. Then start disconnecting what ever is limiting droop until you find your answer.

I think you'll be surprised to find that the rear bar limits just about nothing except body roll.

its a pretty thin swaybar, i dont see how it could limit it much. But keep in mind there is a difference in too much flex and usable flex.

track bar limits droop in the rear and if it doesnt then the control arms. at least it does with factory trackbar and arms.

I was more thinking if I put 1 wheel on a forklift what will limit the other wheel staying on the ground the most.. drop is great but how often are both wheels drooping? (usually your really bum outta luck when both back tires are dropped all the way out)

But thanks for the information hopefully I'll never be too smart to learn something.

soo....the parts list for that suspension?

The CE-9120TJJ comes with a 7/16" housing bolt. The CE-9120TJS retains the stock trackbar housing bolt.

Thanks... since I don't have a stock trackbar, I'm assuming I don't have a stock trackbar bolt.

You have the RE1600, correct? If so this retains the stock trackbar bolt at the housing, just like the CE-9120TJS.

The CE-9120TJJ requires drilling to accommodate the 7/16" bolt.
