    We just went through this with another thread. Front lower are the only arms you will need to get your caster and pinion angle back into spec. As far as a brand, try to get something built in USA and some with Johnny Joints will likely last longer if you spend a lot of time offroad.

    If you're okay with the way your Jeep handles now, you don't really need to get anything at all. If you're feeling like your Jeep wanders at highway speeds, adjustable front lower arms to help set caster will be what you want and as mentioned, something like a set of Currie arms which has Johnny Joints is what I personally prefer. Also, as mentioned, you only need adjustable rear uppers once it's time for you to replace your rear drive shaft with an aftermarket u-joint style one. They will be needed to set your pinion angle.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
