AzTJ Simplest thing to do is replace the bushings... the ones that came with the lift were probably urethane, which is fine really.

Are the upper arms adjustable? If not, that would be a good excuse to get some new arms that are. I'd suggest either Currie or Rokmen arms.

Intense951 I think that I have aftermarket ones. From the looks of it, they don't look boxy like the stock ones online and instead they look tublar. I will take a picture tomorrow and post them.

Control Arm Issue

I went to go and my TJ aligned this morning after having some steering issues with a dead spot. I performed the Durango swap and that helped the issue but did not solve it. The shop that I took it to said that they can not align my TJ because the rear control arm bushings were shot. I had a feeling something like this was the problem because I read some other threads where the body/suspension seems to be unloading when I lift off of the accelerator and/or hit a bump.

When I bought the TJ, the previous owner had installed a 4" Rough Country Lift. From reading lift reviews, no one seems to like Rough Country but this is what I am stuck with. My question is do I replace the bushings with some polyurethane ones, some rubber ones, do I replace all of the control arms, or is there another option that I should be considering? What brands should I be considering?
