Question What are these parts called?????

Can any of you tell me the name of the parts in the attached pics? These came off an '05 TJ that was wrecked, and I am putting my YJ body on the TJ frame, and I need to replace these parts. Another question..do you need the sway bars on a TJ?

that are the control arms.
if you want to replace them buy some stronger ones. they doun´t cost much more than the original jeep spare parts.

without the rear swaybar you won´t feel a big difference. without the frony sway bar it´a big difference. that´s why most people use sway bar disconnects in the front.

a YJ doesn´t need the track bars. but don´t think about removing the track bars in a TJ with coil springs.

Thanks for the input. Do you happen to have any links to vendors that sell the "stronger" control arms?

if you only drive on the road the stock CAs are ok, but if you plan some offroading i would go with some other ones. and if you plan to lift the TJ more than 2" (with longer coil springs) i would buy some adustable track baars. on that way you can center the axle under the fender after the lift.

rubicon express makes stronger adjustable and non-adjustable CAs. a friend has them from daystar and he likes them, because of the good flex.

try a search at 4wd.com...

here you can se how th eparts of a TJs suspension are named:

Leave the rear sway bar on the jeep. You can disconnect the front sway bar if you want to play off road. If you want to balance your suspension you can add a currie anti rock to the front. It will make the rear suspension work better for you.

I have a stock set all four lower control arms plus the two rear upper arms that you can have for the cost of shipping if you are interested. After market ones would be better and stronger, but if you want to hold off on the expense, you are welcome to have these....

PM me if you are interested.

unless you get CA's with flex joints i wouldn't bother replacing the stock arms...i would rather replace broken stock CA's then fix a broken CA mount caused by aftermarket arm with no flex joint.

Usually when you break a control arm bracket it is only one. When you bend a control arm you usually bend both. Your jeep can still function with 3 control arms. It can not function without 2.

I would suggest a combination of both. The JKS control arms offer the factory style bushing with the ability to twist. They offer a better than factory ride and will last longer than your jeep does. I have all 8 on the wifes jeep.

2x... i have RC control arms and they flex like crap because of that reason

Mr C there were people on another forum (unlimited i think) they were saying that the JKS uses threads to spin and when they get worn out they end up making noise and rattle and move around.

a buddy had this with the JKS CAs. the threads were worn out after 6-8 month. but he´s an offroad instructor and drives off the road nearly every day.
now he has the daystar CAs where the threads don´t spin while moving and they seem to be much better. the flex is the same with the daystar CAs.

he bought a set of 8 adj. daystar CAs for 699$.

he and his other instructors say that the CAs are the only bad product that comes from JKS.

i´ll buy 8 daystar CAs and 2 JKS trackbars this wintzer for my TJ.

one more question. is it true that the later TJs have stronger stock UCAs than older ones? i´ve read that they are a bit differnt. here´s a pic. 1 i the older one, 2 is the latest.
