Here is a link to the $40 bolt kit from Northridge. It comes with bolts for f/r lower control arms and f/r track bar bolts.

I have a 2013 Sahara, the factory bolts were still threaded, still 14mm. I have replaced the factory bolts with the Northridge kit.....I did it as a preventive measure, not because I experienced DW. Award your self piece of mind, get the Northridge kit and install it. You'll be good until the ball joints go...then you can replace them with good ones and you'll be golden!
