^ x2. I have the rear on mine and it made a pretty noticeable difference along with my Bilsteins.

Yup order the rear first, mine feels 10x better with it on cornering especially at speed. Don't forget to order new brackets and bushings. Justforjeeps had great prices on all of it.

So you forgot the bushings and brackets then? See my previous post or you will be sad when you get it and realize you need them!

Re: which srt sway bar makes more of a difference? front or back

You need both! You'll get unballanced cornering characteristics running only one. If you just install the rear, you'll increase oversteer in the front. If you just add the stiffer bar to the front, you'll decrease oversteer and may reduce front grip to the point of inducing high speed understeer...which isn't entirely bad, since our rigs have alot of oversteer to begin with. Therefore, it would be optimal to stiffen up both the front and the rear at the same time...if I could only do one, I'd do the front, for it makes the biggest difference.

I totally disagree with this; The WK, nor any other vehicle sold in the world has oversteer built in to it. A vehicle is much more unsafe to drive when you have oversteer, which happens when the front is stiffer than the rear, and ALL manufacturers design thier vehicles to have a degree of understeer, since it is the safest. Once you have had the rear of the vehicle come around during an agressive corner and cleaned the brown spots from your jockey shorts, you will then understand. Get the rear first for sure.
