Superior Product September 4, 2014
Reviewer: Tristan Leslie from Estes Park, CO United States  
These control arms replaced stock uppers. Combined with the rear lowers and Metalcloaks 3.5" springs, the ride become far superior then the stock ride ever was! The included metric 10.9 bolts were a life save due to my near rusted out stock bolts. No drilling required which is really nice due to the cramped space. When offroad, the duroflex joints flex like no other joint on the market. Fantastic product!

Amazing ride quality April 10, 2014
Reviewer: Robert Williams from Richmond, MO United States  
These arms are amazing! Before installation I was almost to the point of selling my jeep because of the horrible on road ride but after installing these my jeep is enjoyable to drive. My jeep used to feel so unbalanced and like a bobble head going down the road now it feels more balanced and sure footed, feels more like the wight transfer has been spread out equally on all wheels now. Can't wait to see how they flex offroad! The only con to these arms is they will not adjust down to the same length as stock arms but all the way in was just right for my pinion angle on my 4" lift.

beef arms, excellent joints November 4, 2013
Reviewer: William Sherwin from San Diego, CA United States  
fast delivery. installation hickups due to my oversight. The MC instructions ASSUME that you are installing their ENTIRE suspension system, as opposed to ONLY the upper rear CAs that I ordered to adjust pinion angle for lift/sye. So it wasn't as straight forward in my case as far as installation. I had to use coil spring compressors to remove springs in order to drill out the holes for the larger bolts. Also, the prescribed drill bit size for the holes was incorrect. Instructions stated 7/16 inch drill bit. did not work for me. I used 1/2 inch.
All that said, having only changed RU CAs my ride is already a bit smoother. In time I will have their entire 3.5 inch suspension.
yes these joints are awesome, check the online jeep forums.
