yes, been told that,but the other arms like bds with poly bushing(i have a set but need bushings) don't flex and may damage the frame/lower mount on a bad impact, going to try these if they work or not, would sooner bend an arm than destroy the frame/mount.

You're thinking of XJ control arm frame mounts. MJ mounts have a huge reinforcement brace and don't suffer from anything like that. :thumbsup: It's a truck, not a station wagon. :yes:

 

If you bend up a control arm, it can break plenty of other things along with it depending on what you were doing at the time. Stock arms are for stock Jeeps (and even that is iffy).

thanks, still looking for bushings/part #'s for the arms i have..

jeeps gone back in for the re-check safety, the arms and track bar passed the 1st time, blew a rear brake line and the e brake bracket was folding/weak, wouldn't hold when applied :(
