If I read the number, correctly, in your picture, the part number reads 68184508AA. On the Just For Jeeps website, the part number they show (and I ordered) for the 25MM diameter SRT bar, is 68184507AA.

Did you, by any chance, measure the OD of the bar in your picture?

Re: SRT sway bars.

Yes saw that on just for jeeps. Punched in the part # on a Mopar website and it showed all jeeps with that part # and it includes 14-15 srt. Seems strange to me.

Re: SRT sway bars.

And the sway bar story continues, or concludes, depending on how you want to look at it.....

The FedEx truck arrived at my house a little after 3 PM today, and the first thing I did was take the bar out of the box and read the part number tag. It reads 68184507AA, what its supposed to. Then I measured the OD. It measured out at 0.985". Not exactly the "1 inch" that it's advertised to be.

I get under the GC, and remove the OE bar. I check the part tag and it reads 68184508AA, as suspected. I measure this bar, and the OD is 0.915". So, if nothing more, the "SRT" bar is 0.070" larger in OD that the OE bar, but as I said, not the 1" it's assumed to be.

I began removing the OE bar while also preparing dinner on the grill, then installed the new bar after finishing dinner. I say this because I can't exactly say how long the swap took, but I'd estimate it was under an hour, in total, with no drama. Working on a relatively new vehicle has it's advantages!

Having said all that....... I'm now wondering if I jumped too soon, in buying the SRT bar instead of being more patient, and ordering the Hellwig bar that I had previously mentioned. The Hellwig bar was advertised as 1", but since I don't have one in front of me to measure, I can't be absolutely positive that it is truly a FULL inch in OD.

That brings up the question that if the Hellwig bar was indeed 1" in OD, would the additional 0.015" in diameter make a significant difference in roll stiffnes. After I installed the SRT bar, I took a quick drive around the neighborhood. While not completely conclusive, it appears that the GC now has a flatter cornering attitude. A longer ride will give me a better idea, and that will most likely happen tomorrow.

Re: SRT sway bars.

Maybe change out the end links to Bwoody or black ops. With the 15 altitude the stock handling is pretty good. It's not like with my old WJ and my present 09 WK where the stock handling was horrible where a suspension upgrade was needed. When I do my altitude I may change the end links add srt front with the bilstiens The difference in the rear bar is not much. Curious to see how it feels after driving awhile.

Re: SRT sway bars.

I'm sorry for jumping in late but has anyone weighed the rear bars? Thank you guys for all the information, it'll make the purchase easy.

Re: SRT sway bars.

I was thinking that as well. On my 09 4.7 the stock bar was the same size as the srt front bar just the srt was solid and the rear srt bar was just bigger.

I bet the difference is that the srt bars are solid while the other trims have hollow ones...

I guess it depends on what you're comparing a GC's handling to. For me, this is the first SUV that I've owned. For the past 40+ years, my driveway/garage has been occupied by sports/muscle cars during the summer, and for a number of years, some old, but mechanically reliable sh**box, for the winter.

Back in '97, my job responsibilities changed, to where I was "on call" 24/7, for various periods of time, and I had to be able to get to work within an hour, if the need arose. That meant even in the winter, blizzard conditions or not. I bought my first 4-wheeler back then, a Chevy S-10. I later replaced the S-10 with a GMC Canyon, which I had for 10 years. Although the S-10 and Canyon were pick-ups, they were significantly lighter and much nimbler than the GC.

Earlier this year, I felt like getting a new truck, so I went shopping. I also had a secondary consideration, which was whatever I bought had to fit in the available space in the garage, with the rest of the "family fleet". In all honesty, I would have bought another Canyon, had GM made them in a "regular" cab. I neither like the looks of the extended cab versions, nor have the room in the garage for one, so scratch that. Naturally, a full size pick-up won't fit, either.

I considered a Porsche Cayenne, because they're supposed to handle like a sports car, but A) they're a little pricey, especially for my intended usage, and B) the local Porsche dealer is about 25 miles from my home....too far, if I need service. So, I settled on a GC, and now I'm trying to make it handle somewhat better.....

Re: SRT sway bars.

Yea I guess I was referring my 15 altitude in comparing to the WJ and WK in the stock form. I have my WK set up that it handles very well and I always bought jeeps for the snow in NE Ohio. I will do the same set up with the altitude as with my WK. The WK2's have a good compromise in handling without being harsh on rough roads like my bro in laws 14 srt. But less face if I good afford one there would be one in my garage. Lol
