Best Adj Upper front arms for setup

I am in the process of installing the currie front upper control arm mount on my axle and was looking into doing adjustable upper arms as well. Now the currie mount kit has JJ's for the front control arm mounts and all I can seem to find in adj upper arms are ones with JJ's in the rear of the arm. I was under the impression that JJ's on both ends up front was 'undesirable'. FWIW, the lower arms are JJ front and rear as well.

I just replaced the lower mounts with the Artec mounts, checked twice and they are aligned per instructions. The axle has had work done on it by the PO, pass side lower mount was redone (tore off on me) and the knuckle has signs of being rewelded as well. When I install the Currie upper pass mount per instructions, it comes up roughly 1/4" short for the arm to align. The upper mount and arm were bent.

So, I can either strip the axle down and start over with all new mounts,(best) or use adj uppers to get the arms to fit, (budget)

The front control arms have joints at the rear only.
The johnny joint housing kit on the axle, Is the other joint.

For arms look Into currie, savvy, Clayton, rokmen, and metal cloak.
