Control arm thoughts.
 
I know about metal cloak and currie control arms. Any other brands i could look into. I don't do alot of off roading but do want to put good quality parts on my project since i have it torn to hell at the moment. And most of my stockers are rusted.

Since you know about the quality of Currie control arms and their Johnny Joints, look into Savvy and Rokmen as well. Both of them also use JJ's and their products are top notch.

i have used Rubicon Express and Teraflex and like them both.

I'll check all those out. What about jks control arms? anyone running them?

I've read where the inside threaded part of the JKS can be an issue, wears out and slip . Anything with poly in one or both end stay away from. I have tried many different brands over the years and you will find that the ones worth using have either JJ's or Duroflex joints. Their quality is also very apparent while driving on the street . I noticed much less steering correction required with either of the fore mentioned joints . Their is no way around it you pretty much get what you pay for in control arms and it can be felt both on the street and off-road. Knowing what I know now if I could not have JJ or DF joints , I would buy a good set of used OE arms.

x2 jks makes some good stuff (I've got their trackbars and sway bar disco's) but I've heard to stay away from their control arms. Their joints have a tendency to wear out quick, much like the RE bushings. JJ or duroflex is the only way I'd go for true peace of mind.

Cost vs. quality/performance you can't beat stock. I just pulled my stock arms off after 120k miles and pretty aggressive wheeling in favor of Metalcloak DF arms.

The best are Johnny Joints or Duroflex joints . A flex joint is not a true JJ ,it is an imitation that don't compare. You are looking at arms that are more expensive than the best arms out there . Check any forum and look at what kind of arms the people who have been around for a long time are using and you will find all the answers you want.
