dont buy the ones with poly bushings that dont flex. they stress the control arm mounts badly when crossed up. i have seen their stuff, never used it though.

i got a set of lower control arms for 3 to 5 inches of lift, with flex joints on both ends, real cheap used on escam a while back for my lj. look around for something flexible.

I have been running the tappered poly bushings arms for 2 or 3 years now. They are greasable and flex more than enough for me. I run them on an XJ with 6" of lift with Drop brackets and 35's and they have enough missalignment to stuff the front tire to the hood and enough to drop to max out my 6" lift shocks plus a few more inches. Decent bang for your buck, you certainly aren't going to bend one. My control arms brackets are all 1/4 inch so I have no idea if they are tough on the stock brackets but if you are wheeling your jeep they should be beefed up regardless of what CA you are running.
I chose the tappered bushings specifically for the fact that they survive well in mud and water, mine are still in great shape.
