Default Anyone running Currie Antirock Sway Bar system?

Have finally had enough of my quick disconnects, getting them back on has become a titanic effort. Looking to see if people like their antirock sway bars, particularly if anyone had just used the fronts. Looking to get both but will have to do it in stages due to money constraints.

I am running just the front at the moment and have for the last year, have a rear set that I will be putting in shortly. I run a 4dr and have front hydro bumps, remote res shocks etc. Most of my driving these days is offroad, but drove it onroad daily for about 3 months. I do a fair bit of go fast stuff with some rock crawling.

Impressions:
Onroad- bit more sway, but very predictable, but easy enough to learn to drive, can still hit corners pretty much same speed.
Offroad- love no disconnects, much more controlled offroad. I drive the Jeep at speed offroad and it feels so much more controlled. Doesn't effect flex, but helps to level the body out.

Overall love it, ran JKS disconnects for 3 years and would never put them on again!
Make sure you have some offset on your rims to clear them, stock rims will touch on droop, I believe they recommend 4.5 backspace, but I'm running AEV (5.2 from memory) rims without an issue.
I'm going the rear swaybar to just have a bit more rear control and ability to dial in a few more things on my setup, really didn't have any issues with front currie and rear stock swaybar.

Really appreciate the response, exactly The info I was after. Have a similar setup as you with a 4 door running AEV 3.5 reservoir kit. Have 4.5 backspacing already. Its mainly a weekend car as well. Just wanted to make sure it was drivable on the road. Thanks again!

Its probably been my favourite mod so far, made the car so much more pleasurable to drive as it handled so much nicer when you wanted to really get into speed.
To give you an indication I ran the same track under 3 different conditions at top speed only backing off when it felt uncomfortable. I kept the results, I had done some little fine shock tuning and added hydro bumps to front for the 3rd run, but the track didn't have big washouts so I wasn't into the bumps too much in any of the runs.

1. Stock swaybar connected - 68km/h
2. No swaybar connected - 60km/h
3. Currie swaybar - 86km/h

As you can see I was able to push the car much harder than all the other times I have been out and done the same run, it was much more comfortable and stable throughout the run. I find crawling the bar helps to keep the car much more level and is very predictable, I found having no swaybar was much more dependant on my shock valving to manage body roll (which was an issue as my car weight often changed between outings). Would buy again in a heartbeat, looking forward to how the rear works with the front.

Great info mate, you've helped me make up my mind. Just going to sell my mountain bike to pay for this as I can't remember the last time I used it.

How are these so different to swaybars?

I've got the AEV 3.5" lift in mine and no swaybar disconnects and I find the swaybar really limits my flex.

Just wondering what the advantage of these is as they seem to be the same as a swaybar! Is it because the arms are longer than the pivot point on the swaybar, so you can achieve more flex?

Cheers

My understanding is that it is just a softer sway bar. It allows for considerably more flex compared to connected while providing more stability compared to fully disconnected.
