Addco FRONT swaybars. Need opinion on effectiveness versus stock front bars.

Guys,

I have long since replaced my factory rear swaybars with the Addco replacements and have been VERY happy with their immediate effect on my handling.

I was wondering from those that replaced their factory front swaybars what if any were the improvements? The addco bars are marginally larger than the stock ones so I did not do these 2 years ago.

But having a road course event coming up, I am now thinking of doing these.

Thoughts?

I also have always been on the fence with this but have not done it

I have heard of fitment issues with the front that I don't know whether or not have been corrected or not.

Most will say its not worth it but I dont know if thats really from experience or not or just an opinion

I will say my jeep as is handles very well

Bwoody links, JBA UCA, Eibachs, rear addco sway and vreds w/modified oem bump stops

I installed them with my Bwoody springs 3 years ago. My Jeep handles like its on rails. The front sqeeks and creeks, so I'm constantly spraying Fluid Film in the bushings.

I think for the size difference they aren't worth it and haven't done it. For the most part it is just an opinion because no manufacturer of parts ever tests their parts. They make them and let us be the guinea pigs. That's what sucks about being a limited build.

reviving a old thread

installed both front and rear, previously had the road magnet springs. Great improvement.

jacking up the rear from in front of the 4 link, on one side now lifts the front wheel a lot sooner then before , cant wait to throw it into some good corners.

Have had mine on for a few months now and I feel a positive improvement but not super significant. Deff a bit more like on rails and less roll. I give them about a B to a B+

I have a Front and Rear set. I swapped my Front Addco sway bar back to the stock sway bar. I could not stand the noise and the improvement with Addco was minimal for me.
