Both. Since I replaced stock (they looked a little cracked) for Autozone ones, I feel like the front is loose, and when I take regular road bumps at 60 or so I get this vibration. The hall front end is new and every single part,(tie rods etc) are really tight with NO play at all, but I noticed that the new arms,,,,, the metal is slightly thinner and the robber is not as hard as stock. I was thinking about getting JKS or something similar, but they are expensive. I only have like an inch or so lift since I put new variable rate coil springs, which gives me that little lift, what do you think?

Moog control arms from rockauto are about half the price of the duralast units from Autozone. I have no personal experience of the duralast units but before i changed my control arms earlier in the year I asked what brand people recommend and the very large majority of peeps here said Moog.

Yes, I did alignment,balancing and the rims are brand new, I went alloy wheels(aluminum), I'm waiting for a new adjustable track bar since now the jeep is a little higher, but I still have that "feel" and a little vibration around 55-65 mph.

I would rather buy from RockAuto and get a name brand part for my Jeep, such as: Moog, Raybestos, ACDelco, etc., than a store branded part. Who makes DuraLast? RockAuto has been good to me over the years, has good prices, and no sales tax where I am.

Pretty sure Duralast is an Autozone company. Their batteries are pretty good. Not control arms but some battery info that is irrelevant to this thread
