Fixed Lower Control Arms?

If I'm not gonna be Wheeling my TJ Hard or Flexing it out, would it be better to go with Fixed LCA's or should I still go with Adjustable LCA's?

IIRC, some people have had Problems with Ripping the CA Mounts Off the Frame with Fixed Arms. Was that from Flexing out, or just from Everyday Driving?

I have 3" Savvy Springs on it, so I wanna get the Suspension Geometry back to OE Spec or as Close to it as I can.

The only Offroad Driving it Sees is the Beach.

what do you have now, other than the 3" springs?

all factory or any aftermarket trackbar, track bar bracket, control arms, etc?

Are you having issues and that is why you are asking about changing stuff?

Just trying to get some info to better answer your questions.

Thanks

JKS Adjustable F & R Trackbars, all Control Arms are OE right now, no SYE.

It Drives & Tracks Straight.

I got some kind of Clunk in the Rear Pass Side that I'm trying to Track Down. I've Checked every Nut, Bolt, Bracket, Shock, Bar, Clamp, Heat Shield, Skid Plate, Gas Tank ect... EVERYTHING Under the Jeep in the Back has been Checked.

Along with getting the Suspension as much back to Original Geometry I was Thinking it would Stiffen the Ride up a Lil so the Jeep wouldn't Wiggle (Side to Side) as much. That's when the Clunking is the Loudest and most Annoying.

They all Look Good. No Dry Rot or Cracking. The Jeep is an '05 with only 37k Miles.
