Control Arm Bushings

I need to replace all control arm bushings and I can't decide if it'd be easier to just buy all new control arms. In terms of cost/ease of application which would be the best way to go?

Any other manufacturer suggestions? I was thinking of going with the Moog's anyway as I know they are of pretty good quality.

EDIT: I have an OME HD lift, will probably put 3/4 in spacers all the way around, any thoughts on aftermarket arm setup?

I would go with IRO adjustable short arms (what I am currently using), at least up front since you will be adding the spacers to your OME lift. I initially went with cheap replacement arms and D30 axle bushings, they didn't last a year. NAPA has the high quality line called "Napa Chassis Parts" (NCP) which uses Clevite Rubber in the bushings (same as MOPAR) for about $100 each. Those would be my choice. Or if you want to keep OEM, the MOPAR replacements are about $120+ each online.

I second the suggestion of the IRO adjustable arms since your Jeep is lifted.

Send me a PM here on the forum or email me at kolak@aol.com - I'm an IRO dealer and I also have nice replacement stock arms/bushings if you need them for any of the other positions.

Should long arms be avoided with this short of a lift?
