Hellwig Rear Sway Bar

Anyone have any experience with them? I've been dragging the web looking for a sway bar solution and this is the only hit I've come up with for a WK2 (V8 4x4)... Thx in advance.

Re: Hellwig Rear Sway Bar

I installed one about 2 months ago, definetely levels out the ride a bit on turns and corners, I would say go for it

Check out the SRT version of the rear sway bar as well.

Awesome. This is probably a dumb question, but what's the option for front sway bars? Seems like there just isn't anything out there... I know, most guys are looking to lift and slow things down, but I'm going in the opposite direction...

Seems like the only option is the SRT ones but I don't think there's much of a difference from that and a non SRT model so not sure it would be worth it

Re: Hellwig Rear Sway Bar

I ordered the rear hellwig for my 15 altitude just haven't put it on yet. I think the front srt bar will help some but maybe not enough to justify the cost. I thought I read somewhere that's why Hellwig didn't make a front swaybar for 14-15 jeeps is because it didn't make that much of a difference.

Re: Hellwig Rear Sway Bar

Makes sense. Most of the body roll and play I've noticed seems to be coming from the rear anyway... Thanks guys.

Re: Hellwig Rear Sway Bar

i just ordered the hellwig rear, srt front and bwoody end links. I'll report back about the improvement.

As a heads up, autoanything.com has the hellwig rear for $180 shipped after a 25% coupon.

Yes curious about the Bwoody endlinks on WK2. I have them on my WK with srt swaybars and I like them.

Re: Hellwig Rear Sway Bar

I just add + 1 psi to both rear tires and that helps with the cornering but makes it more bouncy on certain bumps.

I guess everything has a trade off.

As much as I like the bwoodys on my wk, I'd skip em on the wk2 and op for blackops ones. They are far superior to bwoody wk2 endlinks and have the proper angles needed. Bwoody has had plenty of failed wk2 links as they don't have the needed angles on them.
