Greetings, and some help please?
 
Howdy,
I bought a 2004 Wrangler recently. It was lifted when I bought it. Actually it was VERY well set up with suspension lift of at least 4", body lift 2", Warn front and rear bumpers, Warn 8000 winch, MT 35" tires and rims, and skid plates.

Well, someone ran in to me. Of course.
They were uninsured. Of Course.

So insurance replaced the Warn bumper that was tweaked, repaired the hood, fender, radiator, and grill.
But about a month later, I got a death wobble. Insurance has decided its unrelated and won't cooperate, so I am doing it myself. I found the trac-arm loose, and did the bolt replacement several guides suggested.
I found damage to the right lower control arm. I need new bushings, but can't identify the lift to get the right parts. Anybody here help identify this control arm?

So you think that's a Rusty's, or are you suggesting Rusty's as a replacement for the control arms? Just to clarify, not being a smart *ss.

Reason I ask, I really like the way these look, the tube style are kinda plain... but if there is a good reason not to use them I am willing to learn.

??whut the...?? A reply was here suggesting I look at Rusty's, but then gone when I replied. that's weird.

Looks like Skyjacker control arms. If you are looking to replace them, go with a better quality adjustable arm. Rockmen, Currie, Savvy.

If you just want to replace bushings, contact Skyjacker.

They are definitely not Rusty's arms.

x2. Go with Rokmen or Savvy. Don't waste your money buying another set of those control arms.

thanks for the input. Looking for replacements now.
Skyjacker used to be good. When did they go bad? It's been a loooong time since I dealt with them, I think early 90's was the last time I had them... just too expensive.
