    I fnot the JeepinByAl upper control arms , then Moog problem solvers, they are greaseable
    JBAs are rebuildable as well
    5100s are a better shocks but the 4600s are also a good shocks , 5100s are just an upgraded version

    I've installed both and rode in both
    running the 5100s on the rear of my 03 currently and love them ( have JBA adjustable coilovers up front )
    but to the average person to ride with one with 4600s and then 5100s it would be hard to tell the difference really
    Not calling you or anyone else " average " but you'd have to really need to ride a lot in both to even tell any difference

    RRO is a great company..use it on all my jeeps ..complete kit, but it can be a few bucks more than sourcing your stuff separately depends on you

    While you’re into the front end, check the front shafts for wear. If it’s already all apart, changing them makes sense too.

    ^^^^^ what he stated check CVs on both sides
    NAPA remanned are the best replacements if needed
    ( zone ones etc are not long enough )
    and ALWAYS replace the intermediate shaft on the right side
