Anyone with Currie control arms?

Trying to get some feedback on Currie's control arms with the Johnny Joints. I am planning on getting some, but would like to get some feedback before I spend the $$$. Performance, maintenance, etc......


3rd time around with 2006 2.4L 6sp, warn bumpers front/rear, clean slate to work with-need ideas....

They're among the very best, if not the best short control arms. I purchased a full upper and lower arm set and was amazed at their beefiness and quality but ended up getting a "smoking deal" on a RE longarm kit so my Currie arms never got installed.

I'm sorry but for anyone who might ask, the Currie arms I did not install are already sold.

When you have a choice, buy American.

Currie Arms

Like Jerry said, they are well built. I only have the upper rear adjustable control arms installed. My only complaint is that on my TJ I have to loosen the exhaust up every time I want to grease the right upper arm because I can't get a grease gun on the zirk with the exhause in the way.

I put upper & lower Curries on my '99 TJ about 18 months ago and have not had a problem. Combine those with Currie's Anti-Rock sway-bar kit and you will not believe the articulation possible! Ask Santa to bring you a set and you won't be disappointed.

I'm running the Currie arms and they're the best out there, IMHO. They have held up to several years of abuse (they were on StealthTJ's Jeep before mine) and are still in perfect shape...other than lots of rock rash, that is.

losttj - Either turn the bolt around so the grease fitting points to the outside (you can get the grease gun on through the hole in the frame, but it's a pain to get off) or install a 90* grease fitting and point it down.
