The control arms are descent if you're wanting a low end control arm until you can upgrade to something better. The track bar on the other hand really sucks. I speak from experience.

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

If you want to get the good stuff then check out Rokmen or JKS. Rokmen and JKS make great control arms and JKS makes killer track bars.

scout, your right! ive done that before, gotten the intake,carb, or cam that"would be good enough" only to get the ones i should have got in the first place later. now,that said, where would be the best place to get the good stuff at the most reasonable price? nothing that i hate more than buying some item at a high price and finding them a week later for half price!thanks, i can always get good advice here!

You could by the Rokmen control arms for a killer price right now -

http://www.wranglerforum.com/f37/rok...ale-21001.html

You won't have to worry about finding a sale later - just the opposite - next time you look the price will be higher...

I run Trek/TnTcustoms control arms and have been very pleased with them.

I knew you would pay this thread a visit.

By the way, RokMen sells their own control arms and they carry JKS too. One stop shopping.

$25-$40 per set. Steel jumped on us pretty significantly in the last 3 months along with some of the parts nescesary to make it all work and it's just too much to absorb. We have some inventory from left in stock when prices were a bit lower, which is why we are fine with letting them go at the old pricing.

Pricing across the board on everyone's stuff has been going up too. JKS just made a big jump as well. A set of their arms now run $325.
