If you are too cheap to pony up for new control arms, don’t give up on your Jeep. There are other options, but heck, none of them are gonna last as long or offer the same benefits as our JKS parts. First, we have heard of guys with welders beefing up their stock control arms by welding flat bar stock to the bottom of their stock arms. Just make sure to use some bar stock that is near the same thickness (like under 1⁄8-inch) as the stock arms. Otherwise, when the arms flex the plates need to flex with them or the welds may start failing or stamped sheetmetal may start tearing.
