Tons of people love the currie 4" with the Rancho 9000 adjustables. They also couple that with the full line of currie goods which is a pretty slick kit.

I also hear people like their AEV 3" progressive springs. Some also like BDS

Some people like the Old Man Emu stuff but others say its too soft, depends on your ride and preferences.

Are you lifted now? 305's are pretty wide which generally equates to a decently tall tire they're like 33-34s.

Cant go wrong with either the Currie or the Rokmen!!! Rokmens control arms might be a bit beefier. I'd stay away from Rustys... Heard of too many people with installation issues and less than satisfactory customer service.

I've never used any of those, but heard plenty of stories that say Rustys is crap.

im happy with my currie goods, the rokmens are great, but control arms dont need to be that heavy duty for as short as they are,

Either of those are going to be good, but i like the currie trackbars and bumpstops better than the jks stuff that rokmen sells.

I have Rokmen control arms with OME (ZJ/LJ) springs. I had to replace the Currie front upper control arms with Rokmens because the Currie arms were at the maximum adjustment before installing the belly up skid. The skid required slightly longer uppers in the front to get the pinion angle right.

Probably discussed many times elsewhere but, did you call Currie or David up and try to purchase longer FORGED JOHNNY JOINT® W/THREADED STUDs to reduce costs? I am just curious because, I am at my limits, as well.

I spoke with Dave at Rokmen and purchased their front upper control arms after he gave the measurements. I sold the Currie arms for slightly less than I paid for them. I was not aware that you could purchase longer joints. The Currie arms are good, they just didn't meet my needs.

I just installed a complete set of Rokmen arms using the full traction Tri-link to eliminate the track bar for a buddy on his TJ sport back in May. The Rokmen's are beefy and like anything they make a work of art. I used the AEV 4.5 progressive springs and will be adding the great JKS 1.25 body/mml. If you want to keep rubber out of the fenders you will have to do either taller springs, lower springs with a body lift, or do some type of hy-line fender setup....which would allow you to keep the suspension pretty low....do some searching on here there are tons of examples of each setup that others have done.
