Front control arm questions

OK so when I bought my 4" Skyjacker lifter jeep I had to replace the rear lower control arms because the bushings were shot. I tried just replacing the end joints but they were too rusted up. Now, I am starting to hear the same or similar noise from the fronts. I was thinking of just replacing all 4. Should I go with adjustables or not? Also, what's a decent brand out there these days??? I am hoping replacing these will help eliminate some of the squirreliness I am experiencing too.

Might as well go for all four. Savvy makes some high quality adj CA and same with Metalcloak.

Go with Metalcloaks or Currie adjustable's...you will pay a little more, but you won't be sorry you did.

Absolutely adj, CA if you're investing in new ones.
currie, TeraFlex, RK, MC all make quality arms and joints. Don't skimp!

You really should just replace all of them but realizing we all have to live within our means, start with the lowers and then the uppers. Me, I love my Currie with Johnny Joints and would be wonderfully happy with the Savvy product using the same JJs but aluminum tubes. I have a fetish for aluminum. I have nothing against the Metal Cloaks but for the statements that they need to be removed once a year and greased. No thanks on that. I squirt some grease in my Currie JJs maybe once a year and they are good to go.

Cant go wrong with Currie/Savvy or Metalcloak. Depends on preference. I almost went with the Savvy setup. Id go with double adjustable though. Makes adjustments so much easier. I had to adjust mine probably 10 times after installation to play with my pinion angles. Once I do my tummy tuck i'll have to adjust them again. Thankful I did double adj.
