Wanting to reduce body roll...How
 
I'm looking to give my 04 Freedom Edition GC to my gf, but she drove it the other day and she said she felt like she was going to loose control because it does have body roll when the road is a little wavy. The ride isn't rough and I just put new shocks on, but like I said it does follow the road and if the road dips and rolls, so does the Jeep. I've noticed it myself and I know others with WJ's and they to say that their Jeeps roll some. What is a good way to eliminate this. Would beefier sway bars help any? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

No experience with it myself, but the addco swaybars seem to reduce body roll a lot.

Addco sway bars definitely reduce body roll significantly! The new rear bar is 1" solid steel, replacing the factory 9/16" hollow steel bar. The addco front bar is 1 1/4" diameter, same as factory, but the addco bar is solid instead of hollow. The rear part number is 684, the front is 175. I did both at the same time, but from my understanding the rear bar makes the most difference, the most bang for your buck.

Edit: to polish off the suspension, a set of Bilstein shocks really compliment the WJ well.
