New Lower Control Arms

If I was going to replace my lower control arms for my 4" RC lift what would you say go with. I have all JKS Upper control arms already. Should I just match them for lowers? All bushings are junk and they are the old crap style anyway on bottom arms so a stronger setup wouldn't hurt that lets it flex a little more. Should I just order JKS lowers all way around or something else?

Thanks

I wouldn't run JKS arms if they were given to me.

Check out Currie & Savvy arms
www.savvyoffroad.com
and Rokmen
www.rokmen.com
and you already found Clayton Offroad.
www.claytonoffroad.com

I run Rokmen arms, and they are the definition of overkill when it comes to strength. If i was going to do it over again with whats out there now, I'd do Rokmen lowers, stock or Currie front uppers and Savvy's aluminum rear uppers.

So would you say I would benefit from all 8 arms being installed new? Still cheaper than long arm upgrade. I have 4" springs. Adjust front Trac and relocate rear. I know my springs are old but still working. New shocks and aco spacers in front.

I think I am going to order all 8 arms and just be fresh and all the flex I can get. Also going with CLAYTON. They all seem great I mainly like he is right in CT which is close to me. Buy as local as I can.

All honesty I am overly impressed with them. I did not do before and after measurements but I have to say it works beyond the stock ones. Just holding his built arm in hand will make you laugh. I did fork lift it up and it works like all he'll. Had my 33's up to 34" before rear tire lifted on flat ground. All honesty just calling Clayton offroad is enjoyable. First time I called I got Clayton himself 9am when they opened. Find another company that can say that for their owner there picking up phones that early. I just ordered new 4" coils for my jeep and bilstein shocks for it just to upgrade and support him no argument on price. Being I close I appreciate that too. Can't wait to swing by his shop soon just to say hi even perhaps buy more haha. I go out 84 that way often.

So overall. I suggest buying from him. There IS a huge difference over the streamline names you read in magazines.
