Benefits of adjustable control arms?
 
Brought the jeep into the shop for a preseason inspection and they recommended adjustable control arms be put on. However the recommendation was no pressure, more like come pick the jeep up, your good to go, just something to think about.

I have a Teraflex 4.5" LA, drives and handles great currently. I'm curious if I decided to invest in this type of upgrade, would there be an immediate noticeable difference in on road manners or does this simply allow for current fine tune adjustments and easier adjustments going forward?

In a post earlier this week asking "best three investments?", a few folks reference adjustable control arms as being one of their three. Has me wondering if I should spend the money?

If your vehicle is currently aligned properly and driving great I don't think you need to spend the money. Adjustables are good for dialing in pinion angle, recentering the axles and alignments for the most part. They are nice but if you lift came with properly sized fixed arms you should be fine.
