The best are Johnny Joints or Duroflex joints . A flex joint is not a true JJ ,it is an imitation that don't compare. You are looking at arms that are more expensive than the best arms out there . Check any forum and look at what kind of arms the people who have been around for a long time are using and you will find all the answers you want.

freeskier Cost vs. quality/performance you can't beat stock. I just pulled my stock arms off after 120k miles and pretty aggressive wheeling in favor of Metalcloak DF arms.

x2 jks makes some good stuff (I've got their trackbars and sway bar disco's) but I've heard to stay away from their control arms. Their joints have a tendency to wear out quick, much like the RE bushings. JJ or duroflex is the only way I'd go for true peace of mind.

5spdftw Since you know about the quality of Currie control arms and their Johnny Joints, look into Savvy and Rokmen as well. Both of them also use JJ's and their products are top notch.

Control arm thoughts.

I know about metal cloak and currie control arms. Any other brands i could look into. I don't do alot of off roading but do want to put good quality parts on my project since i have it torn to hell at the moment. And most of my stockers are rusted.
