Years before any recall on the lower control arms, my jeep was jumping all over the place, as the bushings were toast.
I'd like to see what new arms & bushings are now being provided for free.
So if you are going to have the new replacement work done, please get some pics of the new arms and bushings before they install them and post some pics!
What I found was relief slots/cut outs were present at the axle side bushings, that I filled in with windshield urethane with new Spicer bushings, for less wiggle room, tighten things up.


The OEM control arms I still have, with new bushings pressed in, without any problems since.

Of course my 03 has a rusty arm, but isn't covered: https://imgur.com/lM1qJf6

Is there that much difference in the 03 to the 04?

Good "heads up" towpro.

Don't know about your 03 GetEmSteveDave. Looks like 04-07.

I will make this a "sticky" so more people will see it.

Yeah I received my letter yesterday. I'll take the free parts since it will save me the trouble of doing it.

Straight replacement, there are no adjustments / alignment for the rear.
It would sure be nice to see what arms / bushings they are using in the replacements. pics please!
