Control Arm Issue
I went to go and my TJ aligned this morning after having some steering issues with a dead spot. I performed the Durango swap and that helped the issue but did not solve it. The shop that I took it to said that they can not align my TJ because the rear control arm bushings were shot. I had a feeling something like this was the problem because I read some other threads where the body/suspension seems to be unloading when I lift off of the accelerator and/or hit a bump.
When I bought the TJ, the previous owner had installed a 4" Rough Country Lift. From reading lift reviews, no one seems to like Rough Country but this is what I am stuck with. My question is do I replace the bushings with some polyurethane ones, some rubber ones, do I replace all of the control arms, or is there another option that I should be considering? What brands should I be considering?
