I think its worth it. I have some single adjustables from another company, but every time I have to fool with the arms, I wish they were double adjustable. Things may change like spring height or a tummy tuck which will require adjusting the arms again.

Spring height- as in, wear an tear over time such as sagging? Or upgrading to a different height, thus requiring adjustment of the CA?

Both. Your springs will likely break in after a little while, which may require a small adjustment to the pinion angle, or you might change springs out for a different brand or lift height.

Does anyone know the correct duroflex part for replacing the Currie arm JJ lowers? Is it the 2 5/8" OD x 2 5/16" L or 2 5/8" OD x 2 5/8" L?

Pretty sure they wont due to the spanner nut on the one side.
