dbbd1 Good info. I was just about to pull the trigger on RE's.

SuperMario Alrighty, Thanks Schmo!

Schmo The instructions from Currie say 90 pounds for the lowers.

SuperMario Anyone know what they're generally suppose to be torqued at. I've read 85 at the axel, 120lb at the frame.

Good choice . . . I did the same thing and replaced all 8 CAs with Curries after getting sick and tired of replacing bushings all the time. I found it easiest to simply remove and replace the arms one at a time . . . no jacking, removing tires, etc. For the uppers, I needed to use a rachet strap to get them into the right spot as the bushings were split completely in half, but the lowers all I needed to do was rotate the tire a tiny bit and was able to just grab the knobs on the tire and move it enough to get them to fit. I've had mine for over a year now . . . one of if not the best mod I've done to my Jeep. Bushings suck donkey balls!

MR.CLIFFORD I didn't do currie arms. I had a set made and used Currie JJs.

These are HereticFab 4340 2" .250 wall with bungs for Curries 1.25" JJs. Right hand Left hand threads for easy adjustment on the jeep.

Yeah just the lowers. Should be relatively simple then.

jdhallissey Your doing the lowers? Honestly you don't have to jack the jeep up or even take the tires off if you don't want too. It will give you more room tho- jack the axle up pull tires and you can take off both lower arms at once and put the new ones in. The axle will not rock forward or back if your upper control arms are tight like they should be.
