Even if you know of a really good deal on line somewhere that would work....

Opinion: Stay away from the sleeved or pipe within an outer pipe type sold by Superlift, Tera flex, the old style Rough Country among possibly others. Yes, the stock is sufficiently strong and they have zerks. The internal threading for adjustment and "flex" will strip out regardless of greasing. I've got all my rears fused. You want something with the jam nut to fix the lengths period. You'll get different advice on whether to get johnny joint ends, depending on how much flex you think you need out back. Before I said screw it and welded all my arms I checked for movement at the arm mounts full stuff and droop. Seeing no twist at the lca mounts(driver lca prev welded) I went ahead.
Getting crazy with the rear discoed I can see maybe some mangling of the mounts, but
in my econ condition my booger welds work fine.
Going by the big suppliers(4wd hdwr/4wheel parts/q-tec), you're looking at about $230, $300 with flex joints. Dead of winter these guys offer discounts on weekends, specifically lift parts i dunno. There's better deals out there. Search specific the sale forum?

That's part of their updated lifts that have been getting good reviews on JeepForum.com

Lot cheaper than RE, others. Go for it, I'd say. I doubt you're going to find anything for less.
