TeraFlex Dual Rate S/T Swaybar System
Nov 22, 2006
Although the JK's remotely-controlled swaybar disconnect is definitely a cool feature, I think JK owners will still want to consider upgrading to TeraFlex's new Dual Rate S/T Swaybar System. Jeep owners all know that factory swaybars are too stiff to allow enough suspension articulation for off-road use. But having no swaybar when off-road has its drawbacks, too. The S/T Swaybar System provides an easy system for switching between a stiff torsion bar for safe highway driving, and a softer torsion bar for better off-road performance without sacrificing the stability offered by a swaybar. Best off all, this product is also available in versions for Jeep TJs and YJs.
The TeraFlex Dual Rate S/T (Street & Trail) Sway Bar system is one of the most advanced disconnect systems available, with its easy engagement knob you can go from street to trail in seconds...literally!
The Dual Rate features two torsion bars, one for heavy duty highway handling and one tuned for off road articulation. Engaged in the "street" position, the bar allows for a stable highway drive. Disconnected in the "trail" position, it allows your vehicle to articulate and your tires to bite despite the terrain with balanced suspension travel with enough resistance to limit excessive body roll when in off camber and sidehill situations. It also helps to maintain and keep constant the vehicle's center of gravity by keeping the vehicle weight distributed evenly. To disengage the swaybar with the S/T system, simply twist the knob ¼ turn clockwise and you are on your way. To re-engage, rotate the knob counter-clockwise and the swaybar will self-engage when the vehicle is level.
Extensive testing and engineering gained over the last several years from the Standard S/T Swaybar provided a solid platform for the Dual Rate Swaybar. The proven design came after several other designs such as hub or actuated designs failed. The high-strength spring-loaded hardened engagement pin is tapered to eliminate free play, and provides a long term wear free surface that does not "mushroom" or become deformed from repeated use, but remains solid and tight after every use. The split bushing design used on the trail torsion allows for an increase spline diameter to compensate for the higher load capacity needed when articulating. The heavy duty arms feature adjustable mounting locations and is bent to follow the contour of the frame for maximum tire clearance.
The TeraFlex Dual Rate S/T Swaybar System features applications for all JK, TJ, and YJ Wrangler models including the Rubicon and Unlimited. The Dual Rate comes complete with HD street torsion bar, trail torsion bar, HD arms with adjustable mounting holes, self-lubricating bushings, adjustable links, and all necessary hardware.
