definitely interested to see what you come up with...

yeah, it's particularly bad without the front sway bar, but even with it in, it's annoying to say the least.

I want your factory 07-up take-off/thrown out JK front/rear Lower Control Arms! Bent ones are perfect also as long as the bushings and cold cut rings are in good shape/useable

I just finished reading through this whole thread and just wanted to say thanks! I just got my first jeep and am looking for ways to get the most out of it with the smallest impact on my wallet. No one ever said this was a cheap sport, but things like this and some of your other DIY stuff sure makes it a lot easier on the pocket book.

Thanks,
Jon
