Jeep Wrangler TJ - Anti-Rock, Pro-Performance - TechPosted in Features on December 1, 2003
Believe it or not, there are one or two things about 'wheeling that we don't particularly enjoy. Airing up after a run used to be one of those things, but we took care of that with the addition of an on-board air compressor. What used to take eons using a 12-volt combination flashlight/air compressor is now a simple task. The other thing we decided we could do without when it came to 'wheeling was disconnecting the antisway bar links. But thanks to Currie Enterprises and its Anti-Rock Sway Bar Kit, we've pretty much satisfied this antipathy for the last time.
We'd actually already given up on disconnecting and reconnecting the stock antisway bar after the strap that was securing the disconnected bar came loose, leaving the antisway bar to tweak the lower mount when we stuffed the tire as far into the wheelwell as allowed. It eventually took a torch and a very long pry bar to get the lower mount back in line, but that was two weeks later when we finally had a chance to work on it. The stock antisway bar was only back in action for another month before we tweaked it again, resulting in us not having an antisway bar for our TJ. That is, until John Currie of Currie Enterprises suggested we make a change.
Designed for Jeep Wrangler TJs and custom rock buggies and rigs, the Currie Anti-Rock Sway Bar Kit is available for front and rear suspension applications. The Anti-Rock's main function is to balance and distribute the weight of the vehicle over all four tires to increase traction, particularly in off-road conditions. We found it, however, to be more than worthy for the simple fact that we no longer had to wrestle with disconnecting antisway bar links before running a trail. Anti-Rock components include variable-length SAE 4130 heat-treated steel torsion bars, steel Anti-Rock arms, Delron bushings, vertical links with Heim joint rod ends, step-by-step instructions, and all necessary hardware.
