Adding SRT8 sway bar/s questions

Hey all… so I know this has been talked about before on this forum, but I wanted to resurrect the topic and see if any new information has developed. I am looking to install SRT8 sway bars to my 2014 JGC LTD V-8. My first question is:
Should I install both the front and rear sway bars? I’ve read many opinions online, some praising just installing the rear bars and some stating that you must do both. From what I read, I am more inclined to install the rear bars as I am looking to reduce roll and that ‘settling’ feel as you go into turn with this Jeep. Anyone out there with just the rears done? Or people who have done each one and tested out the performance?

My second question is: Are the SRT8 links required and will they add any improved performance. Again from my research I’ve seen people not installing and others saying they’re needed for the install.

I plan on buying my parts through justforjeeps.com, and use my appreciation certificate. Any information on the topic, opinions, recommendations, etc., would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Adding SRT8 sway bar/s questions

Just do the rear bar and if you plan on lowering get the end links. Otherwise just use your current ones. The front bar is pointless.

Re: Adding SRT8 sway bar/s questions

So i'm looking at also replacing the sway bars with the art ones and the shorter links as i'm lowered on H&R springs. My question is, are there any aftermarket shocks available for non SRT models? Mines an ecodiesel, but from what i gather it uses the same suspension as the V8.
Anybody know of any aftermarket shocks? Bilstein maybe?

Re: Adding SRT8 sway bar/s questions

I'm looking for some input on SRT sway bar install front and rear, I have 2015
Altitude and hate the way the steering feels, would these installs help or just a waste of $ and time. Oh stock height no plans for lowering .
