My New Jeep! Needs a part Help PLZ?

OK I just bought this 96 Cherokee "Stole it" For only 1 grand 160,000 miles


The steering was totally messed up got that close enough to get it aligned now once I get atleast one 32x11.5 tire.

The quick disconect from center of each hole is 8"


Here is where I really need your help.
the picture below is of the PS side The bar coming back is in bad need of the inner bushing in it. Man there isn't anywhere around here that carries stuff like that.
I need to know where to go. I live in NE OhiO.

You can tell which bushing look at the bolt you can see the rubbing which is allowing the axle to move on me. Getting a death wobble over 40 mph.

I really don't want to have to replace the complete arm assembly.


Thanks in advance.

Wait a sec here. Are you talking the TRackBar or Control arms??


The grey things are control arms and they are Rubicon Express. excellent brand.

are you talking the rubber bushings on them??

Second of all.....those control arms are on wrong. They need to be flipped. The lower end of the control arm is offset providing enough room to articulate.....

I wondered if they were on upside down.

The bushings is what i really need don't want to have to replace the whole arm unless I have to.

Anybody know of a place that sells the rubicon arms?
Thanks for the reply XJH 007

I found a place in around Cleveland OH that has bushing kits for these arms. Only 13.00 per bushing

10865 Brookpark Rd Parma, OH 44130-1120
216-267-6668

This info I got from the www.rubicon.com

He is a authroized rubicon & procomp 4x4 shop.

Will not list the name since we do have sponsors here and I don't want to step on anybody's toes.
