    Clayton rear lower control arms

    Clayton doesn’t get a lot of talk on here. But they recently came out with some new control arms with dual durometer bushings they call Giiro that I really wanted to try. The only OEM control arms left on the Grendel were the rear lowers.

    This is my 3rd different company on the Grendel. Lol. 2x Currie, MC and now Clayton.

    These seem really well made. Interested in how well the Giiro bushings hold up.

    Got my 37x13.5R17 Coopers mounted on mine slabs. Replaced a few rusty bolts and thread inserts as well on the Slabs. Something I noticed on 37s which wasn't as apparent on 35s is that my rear axle needs to go back slightly. Looks like my 37s will possibly make contact with the body. Need to flex it out to see.

    Looks great! Hard to tell from the picture, but looks like you have room to move it back. Will it bow the springs if you do?

    Its close to that pinch seam right? My 35’s just miss it. Your Jeep looks clean.

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.
