Will probably be buying new lower (and possibly) upper control arms fairly soon. I've come down to either Rubicon Express or Rock Crawler an am looking for opinions for from people who use them. O an forgot that i'm sticking with short arms.... for now ;)

between the two i would get the rock krawler arms.

 

I just went through this on my mj and in the end i went with RC X-flex adj uppers/lowers. they are very stout arms and have flex joints on the uppers and lowers.

 

they were $307 with shipping from hell creek

Rubicon is good stuff, I have them and with that said I wouldnt buy them again.

 

I have had nothing but issues with their rubber bushings. My originals wore out, so I got replacements, the replacements wore out in about 2 weeks, so i called back and 2 months later I got a free set which are so far so good.

 

I am slowly becoming less of a fan of the 'johnny joint' superflex joints as well.

Being someone who runs both the RK and the RE and being someone who sells both the RK and the RE I'd hands down pick the RK one's. Solid stock (no tubing) and best warranty in the industry.

 

RK can be had for $385 for the full set. You can't even get the fixed length RE (non-adjustable's) for that price, let along the adjustable's...

:agree:

 

The rubber bushings on my RE SF arms would be shot every 3-4 months. Yes, I torqued the bolts down with the vehicle weight on the tires. Got fed up with their BS. 3 years ago I went with JKS and have not had any issue with them.

 

You could also consider Rokmen. If I was in the market for short arms today, Rokmen would be my choice.
