« on: January 09, 2018, 05:50:04 AM »

I used to get mine from Jeepey Mart...different model Jeep, but good service.

It's a good place to start anyhow.

I'd try your local motor factors first for a price, ebay can be hit and miss. Without a decent press swapping some bushes is a PITA job, I am in the "buy the whole arm" camp after many years of burning/hammering out bushes from suspension bits.

Jeepey has Crown arms complete for £260 each,
Rockauto has Mopar ones for £300 and their cheapest at £60 each. They have bushes for £13 each (Moog)
I would change the bushes first at them prices and see how they last.

At those prices I would buy moog bushes and ball joints and get my local garage to fit, good chance alignment will need doing after swapping, I am lazy and have too many scars on my knuckles these days

DONE.

Not a bad job apart from the bolt that goes through Bush from shock absorber bracket.

Both sides seized and required heat to free from bracket.

Off too have wheels aligned tomorrow.
