Rustys Control Arms, good or no good?

Im planning on getting some Rusty's adjustable control arms for my 99 WJ. I currently have a 4 inch lift.

I just dont know what i need. Do i need the front lower and front upper and the rear lower to be adjustable. If im correct theres no rear upper?

OR can i get away with some being fixed?

AND since Im on a budget which ones can i get first? If possible i was thinking of buying one by one or do i need to get all of them at the same time?

and is it possible to install them myself?

Does anyone recommend any other brands for WJ control arms.

Why is there a fish finder in your Jeep?

Not hard, if you have a socket wrench and the mental capacity of a ham sandwich.

From what I hear they are no good. You probably would want to start with lowers if your on a tight budget.

x2......I don't have IRO CA's myself, but based on every product I've got from them they are top quality. IRO is hands down the best company for WJ aftermarket support in my opinion, and very efficient in processing orders also.

I have Rusty's Adj. Uppers and Lowers on my XJ, my WJ is stock till after the new year. If you only want one set of Adj. control arms go for the Lowers. Quality wise I have no issues with them and I've had the lowers for nearly 5yrs now.

JKS adjustable control arms are the BEST on the market, but I think they're also the highest priced. The Rusty's CA's look ok. Are you going to get the ones with the bushings at both end or the flex joint? IRO's adj CA's look to be the lowest priced fwiw...

If you have 4" of lift, you might want to stay with stock front lower arms if you're not going to get adjustable uppers. If you install adjustable lowers and lengthen them to get the caster and wheelwell centering correct, you'll make the pinion angle much worse without the ability to adjust the uppers.

The Rubicon Express control arms are very well made and have easy to replace bushings. I highly recommend them. PM me if you'd like pricing.
