ZJ control arms

The control arms on my ZJ are shot so I'm looking to replace them with some new ones. The truck will be a DD with a 3" lift down the road and some 31's or 32's. Would oem replacements be sufficient or should I get some aftermarket tubulars? Any brand better then others while not dishing out a kidney and a first born lol.

Thanks Ed

Iron Rock are good and affordable. You can email Kolak and ask if they make a size you need.
Stock arms will work at 3" but really they are flimsy and will fold the first time they hit something off road. If you are replacing them at that height it's a better deal to get some adjustable ones. At least the lowers.

Stock arms don't last offroad, and they aren't great for geometry at 3", if you were running a 2" lift it would be fine as a DD that doesn't see the trail.

Otherwise, IRO.

Thanks for mentioning me IRO's arms are really stoutly made and use rubber bushings for excellent noise/vibration/harshness isolation. PM me if you'd like pricing or just have any questions.
