Comments: can't really give a full review as I havent had the chance to test them out yet, the product itself is very well made and has the excellent reputation of currie enterprises behind them. nothing but positive reviews have been given by other forum members

Price: $270.00
Pros: Good Flexing. Rebuildable (though a pain if corroded). Greasable.
Cons: Threaded stud and sleeve allow corrosives in to rust out threads compromising adjustment coupling. Contact Currie with photos and video of the problem, they absolved themselves of any responsibility after only 2 years on my rig, paid full price for replacement of 2 different arms at 2 different times.
Recommended? No

Comments: I can't say if my problems are specific to Currie's design or simply the general design used by many manufacturers. I'd recommend using a gasket material or rtv between the sleeve and the lock nut, or perhaps a boot over the arm (though the boot is gonna get ripped apart on rocks eventually).

Currie's Johnny Joints are great and I'll probably use them when I make my next set of custom arms out of thick DOM that are cut to length without any adjusters.

I'm tired of these failing.

Pros: seem well built, currie rep to back them up
Cons: don't have yet, can't tell you
Recommended? Yes

Comments: after reading multiple reviews about currie and their products decided it was time to upgrade to adjustable arms all around, hoping this will help correct some of the faults with my RC lift that I'm beginning to notice and wanting to change. I'll admit kind of rushed into lifting and went cheap with the kit because I didn't know any better!

Price: $269.00
Pros: Johnny Joints, Adjustable
Cons: You have to take one end out to adjust, double adjustable have more adjustability
Recommended? Yes

Comments: These are a good way to adjust your rear pinion angle (notice I said good). Ever time you readjust you have to remove the adjustable end of the control arm, adjust it, Minimum is 180 degrees from where it just was) and then play with the axle with floor jacks to line it back up. If you change your lift height or don't get it right it has to be redone. The new double adjustable (adjustable on the Jeep) control arms with Johnny joints make these like like dinosaurs. If you get a good deal on someones old set purchase them, if you are buying new get a set of the new version by Rokmen or Savvy Offroad. The good news is they still have Johnny joints and are adjustable.

Price: $980.00
Pros: Easy install. Tough. Moderately priced.
Cons: Mediocre installation instructions.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This review (and the price) is for the full 8-arm kit (front and rear uppers and lowers) from Savvy. Moved up to 35s and decided I needed some beefier control arms. Adjustment and install was quite easy. Control is much improved. Lots more confidence in the handling both on and offroad. I feel these are the best overall value in a control arm kit. Some manufacturers' arms are a bit stronger. Some are a bit less expensive. I sincerely believe the Curries are the optimal mix of price, performance (i.e., better "control" and flexibility), and toughness. Install instructions were kinda lame, but Jeepforum and other sources provided ample info.

Price: $259.99
Pros: Johnnie joints, grease fittings, all hardware. PRICE
Cons: single end adjustable.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I would have rather had them be a little beefier and if they could have been adjustable from the center like steering linkage for alignment, rather than having to have to take one end off to screw it in or out for adjustment. They are top notch quality, construction and finish. Good price too. Quadratrec
