    Default Control Arms

    Ok I went to put new tie rod boots on this afternoon and noticed my control arms. Both the uppers are bent to the right side of the jeep. Keep in mind these are the stock uppers but the lowers are tera flex. Is anyone running adj. control arms? What brands have worked the best? Or should I just stay with a heavier duty fixed set? any advice in a help.

    Default Control Arms

    Speaking of control arms, I'm running 32'' BFG MTs on my stock ravines and they rub on my original control arms at full lock. I see that many after market arms are not as wide as the stock stamped ones. I wanted to change them out eventually but I'm thinking new ones up front would eliminate the rubbing as well as strengthen the front.
    What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight - it's the size of the fight in the dog...

    I'm a lil partial to tera I like their concept of max flex with minimum amount of lift. I use them on my zj! When I get back from the desert next fall I'm going to do the long arm upgrade as well!
