Oh. Well I know he replaced his track bars but didn't know he did the sway bars. I'll be upgrading and repairing stuff as I go, just can't afford everything at once. Front and rear sway bars are next on the list provided my control arms are ok.

If your control arm bushings have never been replaced then they are for sure bad by now. This is what mine looked like when I bought it at 127k. They are original.

ii was just gonna say the same thing.

since you will have it apart might be worth your time to pull the lower control arms(one at a time, should be as simple as hitting them with the impact to spin the nuts off) and check the bushings.

of all the ZJs White out and I have done (i think i've done at least 7) i've never removed a set of stock arms that didn't have worn out bushings. not saying yours are bad; just saying check them.
