Anti-rock on stock JK?

I have a JK with stock suspension on 32" BFG MT on moab wheels. Could I get any benefit from installing the anti-rock?

How bad is the on road driving? is there a better option?

There are three different settings that you can set on your Antirock swaybars. Most folks run the 2nd setting which is between soft and hard. On road handling has a little more roll than you might be used to, but once you get used to it, you can set it and forget it. Offroad is where the swaybars shine. You get the off camber stability and loose very little flex.

Lupinsea has a great little article discussing the Antirock system. Check it out here:

Even the JK versions have adjustment? I doubt it will work with stock suspension right?

I'm gonna get 'em front and rear. Even if the JK rolls more with them than it does stock, it'll prolly be a lot less than the amount of roll in my WJ Overland.
As it is, my stock JK(with 315/70-17s on 8.5"wide/4.63"BS wheels) is on rails compared to the WJ. It could stand to be a little sloppy.

Last I checked, fitment is addressed by the length of the adjustable link. There's no mention of minimum or maximum lifts in the details. So, yeah, I'd say they'd fit a stock suspension.
There does not appear to be an adjustment for stiffness on the JK version, however.
Drill a couple holes of your own after checking for any interference. That only provides you the option to make it stiffer, tho'.
Or, maybe you could specify a thinner or thicker torsion bar.

TeraFlex offers a dual-rate version.

Sorry, yes you're right. I was thinking of the TJ version as I typed... the JK version is different and is designed specifically for that Jeep. You should have no problems running the antirocks on a stock JK as Currie designed it specifically to replace the stock setup.

I myself have a 2010 that I'm building and am planning to run the Antirocks on the stock suspension too (at least until I lift the Jeep). The nice thing is you can re-use the same antirock setup whether you are lifted or stock.

I suppose you could drill holes, but I have a feeling it's not necessary. Currie has that part dialed in perfectly for the JK.

The linkage looks HUGE compared to stock though. I am sure it won't fit.

Just fired off a quick email to my guy at Currie. As soon as I hear back, I'll post up with the definitive answer.

I was wondering maybe you could use the stock linkage with the anti-rock!

The sway bar links are used to adjust for different ride heights and suspension travel length.

My sales guy at Currie hasn't gotten back to me yet. I'll phone him first thing tomorrow morning and will send you a PM once I know.

Cheers!

Will do. I'll have an answer for you all after lunch. Just got a few things to take care of here around the office first.

For JKs they have different diameter torsion bars to dial in the setting you'd like. You can buy them separate, don't know if you can exchange them though.
