Great question.

I should have clarified this in the graphic. Based on the previous feedback on this thread and others, our TJ/LJ Single Adjustable Lower Control Arms were re-engineered to shorten to 15.5" eye to eye.

Thought I'd share a new video promoting the new Double Adjustable Control Arms....


Appreciate your feedback...

Saw that yesterday. Pretty nice vid. I watched a couple of the other ones too

I do wonder, why use the 1" shanks all around and not the 1.25" on the steel lowers?

Also, unrelated to Duroflex, are the bump stop kits really made with hockey pucks?

Has anybody been running these yet (Aluminum)?

About to pull the trigger but still wondering their durability vs their steel, single adjustable counterparts.

I have a couple friends running savvy AL arms with zero issues. The MC ones are kinda new but i bet ya they are one of those lifetime purchases. I would pull the trigger on em, single adj. or the AL double adj.

I bought all 8 a couple weeks before they announced the double adjustables, honestly it's not worth it to me to pay extra for the double adj.

Nothing really I'm just a worry wart and second guess decisions I made months ago when the time comes to pull the trigger.

The double adjustment is important to me and worth the extra cost. The aluminum bars are a bonus really.

I just pulled the trigger this morning and bought the full set. Hopefully I'll have my SYE by the time they come in. Otherwise I'll put them in and adjust everything to the t-case drop first.

OK, so I am in. Placed an order today for front upper and lower control arms.

I appreciate the time the company has taken, on this thread and others, to answer questions. Also all of you who have contributed information here. This stuff is a lot of $, no matter what company you go with, so it is so beneficial to have the information available to help make decisions.

I just installed a set of DA front uppers on my jeep this past weekend, and let me tell you, the extra cost was well worth it in saved frustration. No ratchet straps, pulleys, chains, winches, hammers, lube, lard, or cussing were needed to get the new arms in. If you go one at a time and just adjust them so the bolt holes line up, you can bolt them in and then adjust them to where they need to be. My jeep, and most of all my back, thank me for getting the DA over the SA. Plus, the aluminum is shiny

Why would you need ratchet straps, etc for SA? I didn't need any of that stuff.

me neither- set my arms at 16.25 inches eye to eye and adjusted the driver upper first and then the pass side adjusted very easy. all i used was a bottle jack to align the front driveshaft before i bolted the uppers up.
