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.

I agree, I hope you didn't actually swallow your hat.

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.

I have been leaning towards JJ arms for years. Now after reading this thread, it looks like MC arms are my next big purchase.

I'm still only on page 37 of this thread, so it may be mentioned in the next 30 pages, but I'd like to see a package deal from Metalcloak for their standard lower arms and the double adjustable uppers. Once I have the length on the bottom set, I usually only mess with pinion angle by adjusting the uppers. Obviously, it can be done by purchasing the pairs separately. Once you decide to spend the money, what's a couple more dollars.

Why not just call them?? They will work something out for you I'm sure.

You really can't go wrong with either but I consider my MC arms to be likely the best upgrade on my Jeep so far.

After having read the thread over a long time, (thanks Imped) I just installed 4 lowers and 2 front uppers, as I already had installed 2 upper, double adjustable JJ upper rears when I did the TT. I did the fronts first and a week later the lower backs. Each time the ride improved noticeably. Haven't taken wheeling yet, but I am expecting to be awed.

They still don't have an axle side bushing/kit. Still using the stock clevite bushing on the axle and the "fork" front section on the arm.
