Thanks

Based on the experience I've had, I'd stick with the OEM style bushings or go with a Johnny Joint. Before upgrading all 8 arms to Currie with the double JJ's I had Full Traction LCAs with poly bushings on each end, Rubicon Express rear UCAs with a joint on one end and the rubber bushing on the other, and the stock front UCAs . . . the Poly bushing were the first go bad and they went bad really quick (literally after a couple of offroad outings) . . . The RE's held up a bit longer but the rubber bushings would split in half after a few runs. After replacing bushings a few times in the FT and RE arms I decided to upgrade to the Currie's which have been awesome. The stock front UCAs were still in good shape when I pulled them.
