Hey guys. I recently purchased a set of rough country control arms off Craigslist. The upper arms have already been upgraded by the previous owner with Currie Jonny joints, and I would like to replace the joints on the lower arms with Currie joints as well. I'm having a hard time finding the correct joints to purchase from Currie that will fit the RC arms. I was wondering if you guys had any experience with this and could possibly point me in the right direction. I already emailed Currie but it's been a few days and I'm yet to hear back. Thanks!

I tried the links provided in that thread and they both lead to "page not found". Does anyone have more current links to the joints in question?

There is a guy that is a sponsor to the club that build arms and suspension components. His name is Andy and his company is Ironman4x4fab.com and I bet he can tell you exactly what you need. Currently people are moving away from JJ in my area and using endro joints. http://www.barnes4wd.com/Enduro-Joint_c_51.html

They will work just as well as a JJ. I'm guessing they use a 1" or 1.25" threaded shaft. I've never seen these so I'm guessing. I had my long arms built with 1.25 JJ. The JJ is going to transfer all of the vibrations compared to the stock rubber. Call Andy: https://www.ironman4x4fab.com/ He is a great guy and has been building and racing and driving jeeps for a while now.

Hahaha if I didn't want vibrations I wouldn't be driving a Jeep! I'll give him a call, thanks for the help!
