Much yes, but if you believed the internet BS about clevite bushings, there's no way to make it ride that good with just a shock swap. The fact that I've had 10 different folks drive that rig and all make the same comment that it's the best riding Jeep they ever driven or ridden in, pretty much tosses that myth right in the trash.
If those shocks were the panacea that you're making them out to be, I should be able to put them on any rig regardless of arm and have it ride the same.
I do agree very much that no one aspect will give you the great ride and handling that rig has, but if you believe all the internet BS about factory control arm bushings, then I shouldn't be able to use the Currie arms and get any kind of a decent ride much less a great ride.
Don't get me wrong, I'm no fan of the factory bushings. I've ridden in plenty of Jeeps with various aftermarket CAs that ride much better than mine on stock CAs. My disdain for the stockers remains even without mentioning the amount of visible slack in my CA bushings with only 22k easy miles on them.
I never knew beforehand that to setup a TJ properly with a 2 1/2" lift and off road tires would require trackbars, swaybars, links, bumpstops, tie rods, upper control arms, lower control arms, slip yoke eliminators, new driveshafts, lockers, gears, steering box upgrades, motor mount lifts, a second mortgage, a divorce, and a third job.
I now know.
