Control arm issue

Bought a 2007 4dr JK about 2 years ago, it had a 4in lift on it when I bought it with 35in tires. It was completely under coated as well when I bought it(all black). The problem is now that the control arm bushings need replaced and I have no idea who manufactured the control arms to get replacement bushings. All I can make out about the suspension is that it had quick disconnects from jks. The control arms a adjustable as well. Does anyone have any idea how I could get replacement bushings without having to get new control arms?

Looks like it might be a Currie arm. It has Johnny joints on both ends.

They might have a bend in them. Hard to tell from the angle of the pics.

Rough country has a clevite. These don't look like they have one.

Looks like Currie to me. Plus it would make sense since they sell the 4" kit. What else does the Jeep have suspension wise?

Not real sure since everything has been blacked out. Looked on the currie website and cant really figure out what part I would be ordering without buying the complete control arm. Any ideas?

Decided to go with these:
http://www.metalcloak.com/2-5-8-D-x2...ade-p/7350.htm

So now I'm wondering if anything else should be replaced since these bushings were so worn out. Anyone have any suggestions on what else I should be looking into?

Great choice. Just rebuild the ends and you should be good. Also don't need the tool for those ends.

You need to go through the whole jeep.

X2 on the MC joints. I just bought a set of currie uppers I'm going to swap in MC joints.
