control arm/bushings

My bushings went it out, would it make sense to buy the whole ARM or just the bushings?

+100 Definitely upgrade.


The factory rear control arms are weak and subject to flexing.
Replacing them with aftermarket arms will also allow you to get rid of the quad shocks, which gives you more room for those fat tires you've always wanted.

Umi lift bars are what a bunch of us are running. they come with relocation brackets that will need to be welded in. you can also bolt them but will be some what of a pita to drill.
