Between the two, I would choose Currie hands down. Currie has the Johnny Joint and a 2 door specific coil spring instead of a 1 size fits all coil. I'm not impressed with the specs on Rock Krawlers new "Triple Rates" at all. They are short and their "firm" rate is rather high in my opinion.

Both are Short arm or Mid arm how ever you want to look at it. "Mid arm" sounds good though doesn't it.

I have Currie CA's and Track-bars along with front and rear AntiRock. No problens with any of it in over four years. Just grease 'em and forget 'em, then grease 'em again when you think about it whenever that may be
I know people have had issues with the RK truss. My kit didn't use one since it's not a 3 link. For all my other brackets I went with Poly anyways.
I am not a huge fan of the RK springs. I have some and are changing them out. Couldn't be happier with how stout my CAs and TBs are. No issues with the joints so far. If they fail I'll upgrade to JJs or the MC Duroflexs depending how they come out long term wise.
I personally think both kits need help as fas as components and I wouldn't run a drop pitman like the Currie kit.
Thanks everyone. I was leaning a little more towards the RockJock and it looks like a good move. I also plan to run Bilstein 5100s with it as I've heard good things about them.
Even if you aren't looking at the RK kit anymore check our their RRD shocks. I was so/so about getting them myself at first but now I am glad I got them. Good ride and built well. Plus I like that I can upgrade them to run res if I want.
I read through that review and a good one too. How long have the duroflex joints been on vehicles compared to the JJs? I think thats what people are waiting to see. Sounds like they should work fine long term though.
