like these guys are saying, do not cheap out on a lift. You will pay more cash now or lots of time and money later fixing issues. If you have the money, buy everything adjustable: TB, CA's long or short, swaybar links and so on.

Experienced the death wobble for the first time the other day in my 2001 wj with 130,000 miles completely stock daily driver. I found movement in both ends of track bar and two TRE with a little more play than the others, parts are on the way. Can both bushings be replaced in the control arms or do you just replace the whole arm? The oval shaped control arm bushing has cracks in it so I'll be fixing that also.

Easier to just replace whole CA.

Just get a new adj TB and LCA's with your lift (if that is the route you are going anyway). Don't dump money into fixing things that you are going to pull off shortly.

I would just do the TRE's now. Save your money and buy a 4" lift.

You just replace the entire arm if the oval bushing is cracked. Send me a PM or email me at kolak@aol.com if you want some pricing on replacement arms. I have OE quality arms at an excellent price.
