More Information for MOOG CK620188

$77/ea,

how are your links? I just had an issue with a knock in my front end- thought it was my diff bushings, but it ended up being one of my swaybar links. swapped them out for a set of moogs, anytime I replace a part on the suspension its been moog LOL
Yeah im on the same ucas since the beginning. Awesome thanks for the link they are not so expensive. Do they come with the ball joints? Swaybar links are locked tight and are doing great but my balljoints are stressed.

So what you think of my idea?

yep that's the complete control arm for $77. seems to be the go to for guys who don't wheel as much but what an "upgrade" over their worn stock arms.

what idea are you referring to?

Thats awesome thanks for hooking me up with the link! I just emailed nick at Kolak to see how much for some rear 5100s and ome coils.

Well since I have some 4600s I would just need coils, 5100s, and ucas

well depends... see I have 4600s with like 30k on them and its all highway. so im just using those front and rear with my MD coils. you don't need 5100s with the rear coils- ive talked to nick multiple times about this. if youre daily driving it and doing nothing more than maybe a fire road- youll be good with the 4600s in the rear, the extended length even with the OME coils will be 1.5". being that these shocks are still fresh, im just swapping in some coils and rolling with it. I think he wanted like $150 for the rear 5100s.

I got the springs for $310 shipped, been in my basement for over a month. ordered the UCAs from rockauto and an extra set of isolators for the rear from rockauto, they'll be here next week. everythings going in end of feb, SO EXCITED! after looking into as many measurements as I can find(on avg even with a hemi youre sitting a hair below 22", the rear sits right around 21.5"). the front will set .5" high or so than the rear with the MD springs with a V8. so im stacking an extra set of isolators in the rear to get that leveled look/slight rake back.

just some food for thought LOL

I have some front 4600s have several miles on them since I had my srt coils. I have some 150 MLLs that would work fine till later. I would prefer running coils over spacer lift. The UCAs would be a must along with the ball joints. I might be on the same boat as yourself end of Feb I would do a full makeover

I would think your mll's would be fine in the rear with ome springs since they are meant to be extended longer than our jeeps do, lol you remember how much of a bitch it was to even get those suckers in. So you wouldn't need 5100's in the rear. Those moog upper control arms are pretty much the same as stock except they have a grease fitting on them... I don't think they'll help very much TBH.
