rokmen or currie short arms

need to get rid of REshort arm lift tired of changing the rubber bushings. they are the new bushings also lasted maybe 3 months. looking at the currie or rokmen they look beefy. if igo with flex joints both ends will the ride really suffer? do i need to stick with rubber or poly on one end? comments please

thanks steve

Flex joints on both ends won't make the ride suffer, and some say it can even make it better. Both are great companies. Throw this in th search or look at the "similar threads" section at the bottom of the page. There have been a few debates on this exact topic.

I don't think you can go wrong with either of those companies... I have the Currie arms, and I love them. PM provelogear for a great deal!

Merry Christmas!

Both good companies. I have the Rokmen ones and get a good ride and haven't had any problems...

Rokmen is pretty much a 2 guy shop and are really into customer service. Give them a call and they will discuss your concerns with you...

Your local to me. I guarantee that you'll love JJ on both ends. If you don't like them, I'll take them back within 30 days! No more squeaks and groans and better performance from a JJ. I can get you Currie Arms at a great price. Rokmen JJ arms are fine as well.

Rokmen is definitely beefy, however as I have never heard of a currie arm bending I don't think it matters. Both use Currie Johnny Joints.

I say go Currie and get JJ's on both ends, you ride will not suffer. Just this weekend I drove Imped4now's Jeep and my Jeep basically back to back. We have the same RC2.5" springs and shocks, but Imped has Currie arms and I am still on stock arms. Both Jeeps weigh a similar amount, but his Jeep rides quite a bit better than mine in my opinion, and he is even on 35" mud tires, and I've got 33" all terrains.
