Savvy Aluminum Control Arms

I know they make excellent products as I have their gas tank skid, but has anyone had any problems with their aluminum johnny joint control arms?

I just installed them on my rig. The arms were well made and made installation of my 8.8 much easier.

No problems whatsoever here; focus less on the material in between the two joints, and more on the joints themselves. Any arm with Johnny Joints will work great, what the actual arm is made of is less important.

Mine have been used and abused a good bit without any issues:

Geiman those look nice and abused. That is exactly what I was looking for. Should I spend the extra money on the bolts that have the grease fittings? I am happy to buy them from Savvy as I support their products.

Unless something has changed, there is no need to purchase the greasable bolts separately. The bolts Savvy provide are the greasable type, as they highly recommend using those instead of the grease fittings on the body.

Thanks. I did not know the bolts come with the arms.

Man,I always think of aluminum as a soft metal.I dont know how it holds up to the abuse of offroading.It must be mixed with other stronger metals??

Nope it's all aluminum. Take a look at what many of the KoH vehicles are running and I'll bet you see a good bit of aluminum. 7075 isn't what your grandfathers screen door was made of.
