Has anyone ever used the Black magic Johnny Joint washers with the Metal cloak lower control arms on a TJ unlimited?

Thanks

I could be wrong, but I don't believe they would do any good with the duro flex joints... The rubber bushing inside the joint should net you the same result as a Johnny joint with the washers.

Please, someone chime in if I'm completely off base here.

I believe he's talking about the washers that take the slotted control arm mounting hole and center it so that the arms are centrally located, and do not move.

I haven't used either one, but I was planning on using both.

If that's what you're referring to then it doesn't matter what control arm end you use.......

They're washers specifically manufactured to remove the annoying caster adjustment slot in the OE mounts since they're no longer needed with adjustable-length control arms. The design and function of the actual end on the control arm has nothing to do with the presence of that washer.
