Default Anti sway bar?

Just finished a great road/4x4 trip in my SPOA Jimny Sierra with 31's.

Damn thing goes anywhere off the road. Anything over 85km/per hour and it sways back and forth like a mofo! To the point where my knuckles are the colour of iceland.

Is there another fix for this in addition to the sway bar??

Input welcome.

Forget the sway bar.
You are already SPOA, so the next thing you need up front is a good panhard bar setup. The one from Spidertrax is the best on the market and it is worth every cent.

Thanks for the suggestion. I just may try that out, do you have one? how does it affect your highway drivability?

Yup, I had one of the first kits way back when...
That's it in the article. I would not crawl rocks without it. When you turn the wheel there is absolutely no lag time until the tires start to turn. Your turning response is immediate and there is no wobble on the road from loose shackles.

Hey Bill,

My rig has SPOA, but the still has stock shocks that are attached to the front u-bolt brackets. Will I need to change out my shocks to install the panhard kit?

Yes, you will need to relocate the lower mounts. This is a good thing though because the SPOA configuration will give you more articulation than your stock mounts will allow for.
