That is excellent! Thanks for posting that, I get so tired of beating that dead horse regarding front sway bars. I like the statement, "Killing yourself is bad enough... but being this stupid can get someone else killed too when your sh*twagon goes sailing into someone's minivan."

I was on the freeway in my 91 XJ doing 65mph when a dumass cut me off and I had to swerve to avoid running over him. Just the fact that I had a 3.5" lift made a big difference with a front swaybar. After I cleaned my undies and my heart rate returned to normal, I thanked the higher power that I didn't roll that puppy. If I had been stupid enough to not have a front swaybar, I would have been a statistic for sure.

It's really hard to practice what i preach when my sway bar is leaning up against a fence...

I pulled it off the other day to rebuild the end links that has been rubbing on my coil spring since i bent my frame rail. Besides, i wanted to know first hand what all the hoopla was all about...

One more trip to the j/y for exhaust manifold washers for the new bushings, and it goes back on!

And, no... discos aren't an option at this juncture.


It's been a creepy feeling.
:eek:

Hell ya, seen this the other day. Why is it folks can't understand the correlation between flex and body roll?
Flex: slow speeds/trails/rock climbing/RYI

Body roll: flexing at cruising speed/turning at speeds :eek:

I don't run a sway bar and haven't in over a year. My jeep was fine without it with my old stiff shocks. Now that I have new good shocks, I have more body roll and have been thinking about buying a sway bar

I have to decide which way I am going with my jeep. I thought about getting some full widths or try and find some JK axles. I haven't ever had sway bars on the brick but I don't drive it all over the place. My commute to work is only about 4 miles and I don't get past 45mph most days.
