Help-replacing Rough Country lift bushings

I had a Rough Country 4" lift installed 2 years ago on my 2003 Wrangler, and the bushings are crap. Already replaced the rear shock bushings a year ago. Control arms are clunking badly. There is 'warranty' replacement on them but they sent the wrong ones already. Anyone know of a source/supplier to get better bushings that fit the control arms for this lift/make? I am hesitant to replace with possibly the same crap bushings that are on it now...

As annoying as I can imagine it is, I would keep working with RC to get their bushings. Those sorts of things are not usually universal. Another set could be close, but if it's not just right, it is going to cause problems down the road and you'll be back where you started.
If you are in a spot to swing it, you should talk to them about possibly doing an upgrade to their new adjustable CAs. See if they will cut you a bit of a deal since you're going through an ordeal with these bushings.

Thanks for the info Patrick...unfortunately I've taken a big financial hit...had to shut down our retail store to cut my income to save my Social Security any more upgrades on the Rubicon have to be budgeted out long range. Still fighting with the VA to get disability from the VA since THEY caused my medical problems...long story but no end to it yet.
Once I get that settled (or maybe IF) I get that settled we can get back to upgrading the rubicon. Just had to replace all the brake pads, calipers, ball joints, tie rod ends...and I only put about 3,000-4,000 miles a year IF that much on it! And it's NOT all offroad. Just parts failing that should have lasted much longer-only 54,000 miles on it!
I'll wait and see if my mechanic gets anywhere with RC replacing the CORRECT bushings...if they don't, I'll ask about the upgrade and see if I can get a deal. Although...once know....
