Control arms

Hey guys, I was just wondering if the stock rear upper control arms off a tj would fit the front lower mounts on a grand Cherokee? Same length and bolt diameter and everything?

Smaller shorter arms , smaller bushings . They should fit the rear upper only , on the ZJ

We are considering red poly bushings now. Like 62$ to do all 4 control arms but red is only available for the tj, xj, mj on the qtec site, guess what color she wants.....? Lol Are the zj/wj the same bushings as my tj for the corresponding control arm? If so we'll probably order them for a different vehicle to get the red

Zj front suspension is nearly exactly the same as a tj. The rear lowers are the same, the uppers aren't.
