question RE front lower Control arm Replacement

My dad bent a RE front Lower control arm over the weekend hit something? The question is can he replace the front Lowers with lets say Rockman or another brand? He has an 05 TJ with a 4.5" RE Superflex Thanks

I would recommend that he replace them in pairs but yes you can. Ideally they will be the same length but even THAT isn't a major issue if they are adjustable. It is important to have them both properly adjusted. Most lift kids that have non adjustable arms, sell you the correct length arm for their kit. I would measure them for sure and make sure what you are buying is the correct length for your application.

As long as they are the same length I dont see where there would be an issue. I would eventually want them to match though.
