WOW, that's quite a difference from what the instructions say as compared to what they told ya to torque 'em at!!
Are they sending you replacment bushings, at no cost?

snwchris Well next step would be to look at the Teraflex arms or Rokmen arms

dknight Yes, they were torqued on the ground. They ware brand new control arms and this is the second set of bushing that have been trashed.

snwchris Did you torque them on the ground with the weight of the jeep on the tires????

Also are the ams twisted or at a weird angle????

Are they fixed or adjustable arms????

KBR97 I would say poor quality...Rough Country really isn't the best kit around. Reasons like this they are alway getting trash talked.
I would replace the arms with better oones from a more established company.

CA bushings trashedd in one day

Please help. I hope someone has some good advice for me. I had a 4" Rough Country suspension lift installed about 6 months ago. I've noticed for a while that the handling was sloppy. Long story short, I realized two weeks ago that the Lowe rear Control Arm bushings were toast. I installed all 4 new bushings that Rough Country provided on Wednesday and drove 29 miles on Thursday and noticed a little slop in the rear end. WhenI got home I crawled under the rear end and the bushings are trashed again. The center of the sleeves are ripping away from the bushing. Any idea what could be causing this? I am torquing them to 130lb just like the install instructions say.
