Currie or MC for Rear Upper Adj. CA (Short Arm)

I need rear uppers for my '99 Sahara. Have a Pro Comp Stage II 4" Short Arm kit installed already, which includes HD lower CAs front and rear. Now I need adjustable uppers to satisfy the pinion angle after I removed the t-case drop. I have a SYE and CV driveshaft on as well.

Just wondering, for any of you that are running the Currie or MC adjustable rear upper CAs, how are they working out for you.

And for those of you running these CAs with a Ford 8.8 swap, are they doing okay?

TIA -Joe

I like my MC Arms, easy to extend/shorten, and ride nice. You do have to grease them every two years which involves taking the bushing out, but it's a pretty simple process

I have the Currie double adjustable rear upper control arms. They require drilling to enlarge the bolt holes. Also, I would avoid double adjustable arms at all costs. They are a pain in the ass.

They drive me up a wall. Next time I'm buying single adjustable.

I have Savvy aluminum double adjustable arms on some of mine and Currie singles on the rest. The double adjustable are the way to go IMHO.

I have MC single adjustable arms and I love them but I should have spent the xtra coin and gotten the double adjustable. They would be much easier to adjust.

sorry for the late reply. been busting ass at work since. looks like double adjustable curries are the way to go. I'm on a dana 35c at the moment, especially since i drive daily on pavement more than wheel the jeep.

But would this currie CA be compatible with a ford 8.8 swap as well? i'm already in the process of slinging one up under the back end. just gearing away from completing the process...

Yes, if the 8.8 is set up for Jeep ca's, there's no reason not to use the Currie's.

I don't remember the size off hand (not at home), but I bought a couple of crow foot wrenches to tighten/loosen the jamb nuts on the ca's a couple of years ago, and it makes it pretty easy. Something like these:

Thanks Dennis, and thank you all for the feedback on the MC CAs. they are nice and either way, they'll cost the same to get them shipped to HI.

That is what I need to do because the pipe wrench I use is kind Neanderthal.
