The IRO arms are beautifully made and have rubber bushings for excellent noise, vibration and harshness isolation. Are you doing much offroading that will benefit from a spherical bearing type joint?

If you wheel, get the RC arms with flex joints. They are well built except for crappy paint quality, they use stock Clevite rubber bushings on the other end (at least so they did the last time I checked), and the flex joints are fairly high quality and rebuildable. Great value for money.

The Rubicon Express arms are very nice if you'd like something with a high quality spherical bearing at one end of the arm. I'm a dealer for both IRO and RE so PM me if you'd like more information/pricing.
