Depending on the brand of the kit the arms might be worth cutting down and using on the front of your TJ. Heck it would probably still save you money to cut the arms down and put decent joints in them even if they are skyjacker or something.

The only thing I know about them, which seems common to many other control arms, is people on the internet complaining of premature joint failure. The only person I know of had his skyjacker arms for quite awhile before replacing joints. I would imagine you could easily replace the flex end with a johnny joint or a duroflex end, for a lot less money then buying a complete arm....

Looks like a decent one that if you got it cheap enough you could flip & just buy new TJ parts with the cashola.
