On mine the first set I installed was lower front and it made a difference in the steering on road. Much less steering correction , worked great. Lower rears were next and then I just noticed a hair more shock from hitting expansion joints in concrete roads or similar things. Once I did the uppers the ride felt like I had leaf springs . I then swapped to all Metalcloak Duroflex joints on the existing Savvy arms and it as smooth as you could ever imagine and steering is still tight.

Nope not worn at all. I just didn't care for the highway ride after I had 14 JJs installed. Their was less than 700 miles on the uppers and maybe 1000 on the lowers at most. I just really wanted to stay as close to an OE ride as I could .
