Rear sway bar

I was just crawling around under the Jeep and noticed the passenger side rear sway-bar link is bent and the lower bushing has been forced out of its housing. I guess this would be a good time to update the existing sway bar. I know Currie makes a rear setup, however I think it has to be welded in, which doesn't excite me much. Anyone have any good recommendations for a bolt in replacement?
Thanks!

The Currie sway bar PT#CE-9900TJR is a bolt in design on the frame, the only welding required is the axle tabs. Not a bunch of welding. Worst case you could install the upper parts then take your Jeep to a shop for the axle tabs welded on. Just a thought.

That's the one I was looking at. I can weld, however in their TJ video it shows them welding, bending brake lines, chopping out part of the body and dropping fender wells & whatnot. I don't know if I want to put that kind of work into something that I wont get a real payout from. Would be nice if there were still trustworthy shops, I could just toss some money at it and pick it up when it was done, however I haven't found a decent shop in years. I will revisit it when I am not so tired. I think I am hitting the hay. Thanks for the reply.

The Currie AntiRock for the rear is a fairly easy install in the LJ, not so much for the TJ. You can also buy their universal rear AntiRock and install it forward of the axle. The shop that installed my D60 rear axle moved my AntiRock from the rear position to forward.

Oh that's interesting, I didn't see that one, or perhaps my eyes were a little blurry last night from being so tired. I will check it out later today when I am home.
Thanks!
