|LickMyLJ||Well funny enough my friends brother has a parts jeep that he's going to let me snag the knuckle off of, it was totaled in rear ending accident so everything on the front end is perfectly fine. At least this way I can get a manufacturer part for free, and it wasn't a lifted jeep so a lot less stress has been put on it in the past.|

Cheap parts are cheap for a reason.
Just about every part from Crown Automotive and OmixADA I have bought for my Jeeps has either fit poorly, failed quickly, or done both at once. Buy top quality repair parts and genuine Jeep engine sensors. I would buy a good used junkyard part first before I would even think about buying a new Crown Automotive part.

|LickMyLJ||I guess, I saw some posts earlier who were saying the two companies are almost exactly the same. I saw the parts I was looking at on Quadratec. I'll wait for a few other replies before pulling the trigger on the part and I'll shop around to see what I can do.|

What steering knuckle to buy
So I had some death wobble the other day and when I looked at my front axle while my friend moved the steering wheel back and forth I saw that my ball joint wobbled out the mount on the steering knuckle...like really bad. I decided to go ahead and replace the steering linkage and track bar (I went with synergy linkage and a rock krawler track bar ) but my main question is what steering knuckle I should buy. Mopar make one for about $200 and crown automotive makes one for about $110, is the difference in price justifiable or is it just a manufacturer/brand name kinda thing?
