How are they holding up?
One of the vendors was selling them when I was at Moab in April, so I bought a set. Around $55 +/- if I remember correctly. Soon after I got home I changed them out.
The installation went fine. Slow & tedious but not technically difficult. I removed each control arm, took it to the workbench, swapped the bushings out, then remounted it. It was a little bit of a pain to get the original rubber bushings out, but with a few screwdrivers it went fine. On my passenger side rear upper I couldn't get the bolt out from the axle side, so I ended up having to change that bushing out with the control arm still attached to the Jeep. Of my factory rubber bushings, the lower control arms looked fine; the rear uppers looked like they were starting to split, but hadn't yet.
So far they are holding up well.
