Control Arms

I need to replace the bushings for the rear upper control arms on my 03 Jeep Wrangler. Currently, I have Rubicon Express control arms but I have discovered that the company is "under construction". Does anyone know if I can use other bushings or will I need to replace the whole rear control arm? Thank you!

RE used a couple different bushings...so depending what generation you have...you may or may not be able to replace the bushings without RE's support.

i say replace the whole arms...

Call Prothane...they make poly bushings and I called asking them about some TeraFlex bushing replacements last year and they had what I needed and were very open to finding any bushing sizes so they could market them as replacements. Might be an opportunity for you and them.

Thank you! I will check out Prothane first. It might end up being more simple to just replace them while they are out anyway.
