    Anyone have experience with Rocky Road Outfitters upper control arms? Main thing I'm trying to change is caster. I m missing about a full degree of positive caster . 2003 kj with 21/2" lift on front, everything works good but it's kinda "twitchy" going down the road and it chant be adjusted to factory castor specs.

    JBA 4.5 UCA's would be the correct part. Can you post your alignment sheet?
    Want to quote TJKJ here re lifted KJ..

    I know what your saying but the factory spec is 3.4 and I'm at 2.1 and it has classic lack of positive caster handling.

    Just say NO NO NO to the RRO junk
    buy good ones from JBA
    RROs are hit or miss if they fit right, if they do not fit right then it's your fault, not theirs

    My first-hand experience with RRO arms...

    They cured the alignment woes it had from lifting. (horrible camber)

    FWIW, when it was stock, the steering seemed twitchy. Wheel spacers helped that. (They went on with the lift.) Wheels with less positive offset would have had the same effect.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm starting to think it upper control arms wouldn't help . My camber is fine and it sounds like my caster is in the ball park of what most are saying is ok
