They are nice but AntiRocks are pretty much top of the line as far as sway bars go. The skyjcker kit has way to many parts for such a simple purpose.

lol no, i really want the D44 and D60 on it.

I hope around christmas to have the D44 all built and ready for install, but i wont install it until the rear D60 is done and i need wheels and tires.

UPDATE!
Ordered my D60 Carrier for 4.56s and up.

Also ordered my high steer arms with hardware.


Ordered my XJ bracket kit too.



Hopefully in the next couple of weeks I will order balljoints, bearings, and calipers for the front knuckles.

you know i might have messed up on that. i noticed that after i placed the order so i am going to call them monday and see if they will still work on my knuckes or if they will just make them the standard 3 hole pattern.

I am going to run the F250 D44 knuckles they are flat top knuckles.

Actually are the first 3 holes the same pattern as the stock D44 pattern on the drivers side? then they just add the fourth hole for added strength?

I bet you could get a added to each side when you get the knuckles machined flat and the passenger-side studs added. That would let you use all the holes.

The front 3 holes look like they line up on the existing d44 studs... I think the last one is extra?

the stock knuckle isnt big enough to have the 4th hole. Its only available on certain aftermarket knuckles.

so you/we would agree the the first 3 holes are still the standard pattern? and the 4th is an extra if you have after market knuckles?

And I am pretty sure there is not enough room for a 4th hole.

Just out of curiosity why didn't you go ahead and use the D44 when you first did the SAS? Seems like it would have saved you time and money. Nonetheless, its gonna be even more badass when you get it done.
