Re: upper control arms advice

I have the JBA's on my lifted XK and very happy with them. I will put JBA's on my WK when I put a lift on it.

Re: upper control arms advice

They are rubber bushings and will be worn out by now, that is unless your 2005 has low miles. Replacing the control arms is easiest and most cost effective way rather than replacing the bushings in the old OEM arms.
I replaced front upper and lower, rear upper and lower arms, and rear track bar, (Moog, Mevotech) along with Moog inner/outer tie rods and the improvement in ride, handling and steering is like night and day. Not only is is much more solid feeling, NVH is lower, i.e. it is smoother and quieter than stock. No bouncing or wallowing around like the worn stock control arm setup. Before it was like playing basketball with shoe laces untied and loose; now the laces are tightened.

Hi all
Just to update all of you
I changed the upper ball joints only.
The charge of new upper arms was not OK for, 360€ without tax and without mounting for 1..
Ball joint 42€ each plus 200 for mounting.
Bushings unchanged they were OK after 230k km
Hope I don't need to change something else in the next months
