too much body roll with YJ and 3 link

i have had my Yj 3 linked in the front and leafed in the rear for about a year now, i get to much dam body roll. Just by jerking the steering wheel slightly i can get the front end to hit the bump stops

Is this normal for a 3 linked jeep. its got 60s front and rear, v8 nv4500 np205 and 38's

My front is coilover with bilstiens with meduim valving and the coils are 350lb and a 150 on each coil over i think

Is this to soft? i dont have any sway bars and i know that does not help but i need to do something, how much do the anti rocks help this?

Thanks

Im running 200s in front. Try trading out springs with someone and see if it changes.

You could try setting the dual rate stop lower so the 350 coil transitions sooner. It helped my yj when I was runing a similar setup to you.

Did you plug your numbers into the 4 link calculator for a comparison?

If you had one, you probably wouldn't be making this thread.

Can you post the calculator that will help you choose your spring rates?

I'm doing a 3 link as well and would like to get the spring rate right the first time.

did you build your CO mounts so that the COs are straight up and down?
they need to angle in at the top or you get what you described
