Johnny Joints are awesome and a part with a proven track record. The Johnny Joint doesn't go through a lot of changes every year because they work just the way they are. They are inexpensive and easy to rebuild if necessary.
I have Currie control arms all the way around and like them. I am very curious (yeah Marcus if you read this, I said curious. Haha) about the MC arms though. It seems they have aligned everything correctly which is a huge deal in my book. I do find that the Currie arms are slightly misaligned to begin with and it causes a little rub on a couple of the ca mounts but not to the point that it's problematic. None of this mattered that much until I crushed one of the front mounts and now I have a little bind which I might not have if the joints were aligned better to begin with.
I would avoid the ebay thing and go directly to Currie or talk to Marcus at River City Offroad and see if he can get you some Currie control arms. I personally wouldn't install a control arm without having a high quality joint like the Johnny Joints on both ends but that's just me.
Of course you won't have a similar flex joint on the front upper axle side ca's unless you change the factory bushings out on the axle which I highly recommend. Again, you can get a Currie front end housing kit to do that and it's actually pretty easy to install if you can weld. If you can't weld then its still a pretty small job so it wouldn't cost much to have someone tack it all up for ya. Anyway, that's my .02 cents for what it's worth. Good luck
