Something is wrong here!!!
 
So I was up at browns today with a friend of mine and we were on firebreak five having a jolly time! As I go down the trail I start to hear this terrible grinding sound coming from the front passenger side. Get out and look to find a busted lower control arm!! That just made my day a giant pain in the ass!! I limped back home at 30 mph but that was better than the tow cost would be I guess.

Anyway wanted to get some input from you guys on what lower control arms to replace the POS teraflex LCAs with? I was looking at some of the Currie Johnny Joints? Are they worth the extra cost? Any other suggestions?

Any of the Johnny Joint types: Currie, Savvy, or Rokman would likely be your last control arm due to their quality and durability.

Are they easy to install? Just pop the old one off and put on the new? Any adjusting sense they are adjustable?

Yeah I run currie control arms and they are the bomb! You can grease them and rebuild them if you have to. Ergo the last control arms you will have to buy:)
Sorry to hear about the busted LCA....

They are adjustable to help you dial in the right pinion angle for whatever lift/suspension you ride at. You would have to just make it the same length as your current control arms. But they are nice since you can keep them if you lift more with a short arm lift strategy. All you will have to do then is just dial in/out more when the time comes.

Yeah it's the Johnny joint that you want. So currie, rockmen, and savvy all sell control arms with them. I don't know who has the best price.
