Default long arm

im looking into building a long arm for my xj...
nothing extreme just to get a bit better flex and need to know what is better rod ends or johnny joints and who has the best prices for these i know johnny jonts last longer and are rebuildable but my question is what other advantages do you have???

what i am thinking is a radius arm setup setup

For what the parts cost to build something that resembles rubicons radius arms you could save some headaches and just get the arms. PM Ironman for the arms you need. He gets some of the best prices available. Then just build some frame brackets for them.

same here. so fare i've got one good season on them (trails only) with no signs of wear

by the time you add up all the part costs and labor to build them its probalby a better idea just to buy some. but if you really want to build some go for it.
