Jeep Suspension Control Arm Options

Posted in How To: Suspension Brakes on April 2, 2014

Many Jeeps since the mid-’80s came from the factory with coil suspensions and control arms. Most of these control arms are more than adequate for a little off-roading, but things wear and not all control arms are the same. If you own a TJ, XJ, ZJ, WJ, MJ, JK, or others, your Jeep has control arms and they may need some attention. Over the past couple of years we’ve been beating on a set of stock control arms in hopes of finding the weak links, wear points, and points of failure. A good case of death wobble and looks to match the beatings finally encouraged us to swap these stock arms for some well-designed and functional aftermarket arms from JKS Manufacturing. Follow along as we swap out the stock beat arms for some shiny and trick new parts. We’ll also give you some cheap alternatives that should work for you while you save up for some real control arms. These tips and tricks should work for TJs, XJs, ZJs, MJs, WJs, and JKs. The last two, WJs and JKs, come from the factory with pretty decent tubular control arms.
