Front upper control arm bush _replace with machined johnny joint kit?
 
I am sick of replacing the upper bushes on the diff housing and have them only last a short while.They are a pain to do and despite doing everything I can to ensure long life (torquing on ground,deburring housings,gently pulling them in as opposed to bashing them) the last set have only done 4000km and are shot.
My new arms I am about to install have johnny joints on them,will the kit they make for tj/mj 's to replace the bushes with the machined JJ work?
I cant see why not but would like to be sure before ordering one.
Cheers

Duggy2145,

I am with you on the difficulty of removing and replacing the front diff bushings. I have been considering the units below for my next replacement. Another WJ owner completed the install on his Jeep. A link is attached below.

I first want to research the race materials available before making a commitment to a specific brand, however...

Currie Enterprises CJ Axle Parts
Regards,

Carlos
