sway bar really worth it?

99 tj ,tons , stretched, coilovers and 40's. no sway bar.... little scary on the road but it doesnt feel as bad as it must look, i get alot of oh my god looks from other drivers as i am cornering.. ( i drive it to work several times a week).

question : how many people have driven a similar set up with and without a sway bar and is it worth it ? i am thinking about a currie anti rock for the rear only.. ( no room up front ). off cambers are a bitch off road as well, so i think i would enjoy having it offroad too..


any thoughts or suggestions ?

Night and day difference for my friends rig. Any side hilling before would get him that "flopping" feeling. Money well spent.

Definitely worth it, however, it would be more effective up front for road driving.....

Let's see.
And for my rig, it's a no brainer.
Night & day difference both on & off road.

I am at the same point as you on my heep....out of room up front. I think this is the best/only way for me to mount mine, maybe itll work for you too.Post 75: http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showt...=916570&page=3 I never have had or liked a swaybar in the rear, but my last suspension had one up front and i liked the way it worked on and off the street.

I'd put a sway bar on the rear before I put one on the front. Yes they do make a difference.
