Destroyed TJ upper control arm.

I dont have a pic but man that thing is mangled. Its split and bent like a horseshoe. Now im looking for a decent replacment. Any suggestions on what would be a good front upper to replace the cheesy crap stockers with? I cant beleive the damage to this thing and not sure how it could have happened but its wasted.

Re: Destroyed TJ upper control arm.

its pretty common. When I lifted the wifes jeep I orders adjustable uppers from Rubicon Express. not 2 weeks went by till a friend mangeled his uppers and I sent him my spares. I actually might have a couple more laying around with no rubber in them. send me shipping $$ and I'll give them to you.

Re: Destroyed TJ upper control arm.

I'd be glad to. Let me know how much the shipping will cost. Do you have a paypal account?

Re: Destroyed TJ upper control arm.

No problem. I cant imagine that those things would cost too much. I may just go with the RE uppers. Not sure if I want adjustables or not yet.

Re: Destroyed TJ upper control arm.

Might try ebay too. There is usually some on there from people who have lifted their jeeps and replaced them.

Re: Destroyed TJ upper control arm.

Anyone tried any of the Rusty's offroad suspension products? They look like they have a decent price on the upper control arms. Anyone have any opinions on these?

as lomodyj said..............i love my rusty's stuff........the arms are real beefy and they use factory rubber bushings......so they dont vibrate you to death and they are easy to replace if they start to crap out........if you want some pics of then let me know and ill get some for you.....

later
