good find!!!

Yes, from what i've found that part number comes in pairs.

I'm surprised you would not be covered under the recall.

i PM-ed that seller and they are only selling it as a single unit not a pair.

Does a bad rear boomerang cause the clunk sound when turning?
I'm wondering if I should replace both at the same time or just the LCA.

It's possible, can you have someone rock the Jeep around while you watch the tri-link?

Be able to see it move ( ball joint area )
I've seen them bad enough that you could even just leave in gear and roll back and forth a bit and see movement in that area .

I did also. PM'd another and they also sell them as singles. Seems the pair goes for $70ish or so.

Im either replacing the bushings or the entire boomerang at the same time. The bushings have seen better days in mine.

Just replace the tri-link with a MOPAR unit
You'll be much happier in the long run

Currently using Moog LCA's and they've been good to me. That's what caused my swaying around when accelerating and decelerating on the highway. Like my Jeep was shaking its behind when I would touch/let go of the accelerator.

Been a while...but this looks like it. Not sure if sold in pairs...but I remember they were dirt cheap on Amazon when I got em. Unfortunately I can't find em there anymore.

Edit: Found it...but again looks like a similar price to OE.
