Currie or TeraFlex?

So I'm looking at ordering parts for a lift and I can't decide between currie or teraflex control arms... I see apt of people running the teraflex but not many running or reviews on the currie... Any opinions or insight from people running them? I'd be looking at all 8 control arms...

Thanks for help!

Currie is the way to go! I have them so they have got to be the best
Four years with minimal maintenance and still going strong.

Nothing teraflex goes on my jeep. Currie is the way to go.

Currie over Teraflex based on reviews and what I have read from owners on here. Can't say first hand I have had neither.

I went with teraflex for the lift, arms, and track bars. Everything I got is quality and definitely a lot stouter than stock.

Pick which ones you like there's really not allor of difference till You go Metalcloak arms (because of joints) or rock Krawler because of clearance and different bends for rocks.
Aside of that they are all pretty spot on, choose what you can get a good deal on and feel comfortable with.both quality both good track reclrds on em and a jk will only flex so much till gas tank and tranny pan gets hit with driveshafts so they aren't gong to give you some massive flex improvement....heck aside of the thin walls stock arms do well rubber on both ends flex well...

I'd look at cost and what you like looks wise.....

I will say that when I added the MC lower control arms, the front flexed more than it did with the stock control arms. Flexed enough that my tires bent my sway bar disconnects at full stuff.

Wrong.

There are plenty of differences in end construction--preload design, bushing element material, center ball construction, end forging construction. I could go on. Just because TF joints look like Currie JJ's doesn't mean they're similar in durability, NVH absorption, and overall performance.

That's just talking about the ends, not the arm in between them.

Out of those two, Currie. No question.

Currie, RK, or Evo. I have RK arms and Evo 4" springs.

I'm not a fan of Teraflex stuff.

I think the big thing is Teraflex gets so much love because of the way they market themselves for the JK. First thing most people think of besides JJ is TJ for the Currie.

I think its very difficult to argue the quality of Currie on pretty much everything they make. Personally I think I'd go Synergy over TeraFlex but thats just me...
