control arm replacements...

my control arm bushings have gotten really bad and im having a lot of play when i let off the clutch and when i let off the gas n get lag so im thinking about just getting new control arms and i have been looking at these metalcloak adjustable ones Suspension Control Arms, TJ/LJ Lower but it says that they reccomend adjustable upper control arms as well...would i be alright if i just threw these bad larrys in or should i replace all of em....also the play is only in the rear lowers....any thoughts??

Replace all 4 at the same time if it's possible. If not. Set it up for the following check to replace the other 2. It wont hurt anything as long as you don't wait too long to replace the other set.

Because they are adjustable - you can just more or less, buy what you need.

COntrol arms

Thanks for the advice....are there any other manufacturers etc that you would recommend....metalcloak seems to have a good joint and if their products stand up to their reputation i should be more than happy but they are a little steep

Any of the JJ'd arms would work. I run Rokmen and appreciate their stoutness on rocks. Of course, there's always Currie and Savvy.
