What is the bolt size for lower control arms (rear). Would like to install Grade 8's.

Boy, who did you irritate? Lower control arm bolts are 9/16's fine thread if you prefer. Stock is 14mm.

I'm confused, do you want the best or the cheapest. Last I checked, they weren't the same arms.

It needs to be adjustable. I would also like at least one "johnny joint" or similar.

I don't see any swivel joints under $200 except rough country @ $180.

Certainly not the cheapest, but definitely the best
You have the johnny joints on the frame side. Is that right? Don't know why but I was sure it goes the other way. Or maybe it doesn't matter.

Rokmen instructions say them to be on the frame side. So he has done it right. I know 'cause I have the same LCAs.

Long delayed response but wanted to chime in.

It make a LOT of sense that the johnny goes frame side. Installing them you find that side is MUCH heavier. Keeping any extra weight on frame and not 'sprung weight' traveling with the axle. (all angles being equal) Double johnnies do seem obvious for max flex.
