TJ control arms and LJ control arms interchangeable?

Evening all! I have one bad control arm, I want to pull one from the junkyard but I want to make sure a TJ lower control arm will fit on my LJ? Thanks!

Suspensions are identical, the drive shaft is not part of your suspension and no, it's not interchangeable.

Should I just hold out until I get my lift kit? The arm is slightly bent inwards

That depends on how badly it's bent. The axle will not track correctly if the control arm is bent badly enough. I wouldn't bother with a minor tweak.

you can get an oem arm for ~$25 on rock auto until you get arms with a quality set of joints
