Serious Body Roll...NEED ADVICE!!!

I have a Tracker that is 4 linked front and rear that has some serious body roll when riding. It has Jeep coils on the front and rear, the rear shocks are tilted 45*. I am thinking about getting a Currie Anti-Rock bar, but I figured I would see what you all thought about fixing it. If pics are needed I can take them. i appreciate your guys help. Here is a pic of the rig. Let me know what you all think.

Needs a longer stinger. That should fix it.

Pictures of the link setups would help. If it torque rolls, it is a geometry issue. If it rolls at speed, the sway bar will help

the rear shocks aren't helping that angle.

I am moving them back to straight up and down when I put the sway bar on. I just need to find one that will work, and still allow flex.

Is it leaning at speed, or under load, like a low speed turn or when a tire hits an obstacle? If it's the latter, a sway bar is just a bandaid. If it's the first, try to move your shocks first, or go with tunable shocks.

It leans under load, not when the tire hits an obstacle. It has cheap shocks all the way around it so that could be the issue. What are some good tunable shocks at a reasonable price? I plan to go to coil overs in the future, but I need a fix until then.

Look into the Foa shocks, Buy threaded bodies and just add the coils later. And get them closer to straight up and down at 45 deg they are not doing shit to control the roll.
