I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review and installation of the JKS Control Arm Bracket Kit, fitting your 2007 and up JK, with 2 to 4 1/2 inches of lift. The installation of these brackets is a pretty simple one out of three wrench install, and you guys can do this in about 2 hours' time. When you lift your JK between 2 and 4 1/2 inches, you are going to naturally roll the axle a little bit, and that's going to really effect two different factors. One, it's going to affect your pinion angle upfront, which can cause some vibrations or some premature driveline wear. And two, it's going to change your caster angle, which will keep the steering wheel from centering itself automatically, which can give you a bit of a flaky feel when you're driving down the highway. Now, there are gonna be a couple of different ways to fix that. One is with a longer or adjustable set of control arms, either upper, lower, or both in the front of your Jeep. And there are a couple of different benefits to control arms. You're gonna have that adjustability where you can really fine tune things. Most control arms are going to come with a joint that's going to allow for some additional articulation, which is going to be really nice if you're off road, and you're not gonna lose any ground clearance. Or you can go with a set of geometry correction brackets like these ones. What these are going to do is still correct your pinion and still correct your caster but allow you to use those factory control arms. Now, you're not going to get the additional benefits of a control arm like that additional articulation, but these are going to save you significant amounts of money over getting a set of control arms. Those control arms are also not going to decrease any ground clearance, where these will decrease ground clearance a little bit. So it comes down to what you're really looking for out of your Jeep. Now, when you start comparing one set of geometry brackets against another, these are going to be about double the cost of the Rough Country Control Arm Geometry Brackets. Those ones are going to be a two-piece design, to these ones being fully boxed and welded are going to be significantly stronger. But, again, it comes down to your budget. If this is something you're only installing temporarily until you can afford to get a set of adjustable control arms in the front of your Jeep, maybe you save some money and you go with the less expensive ones. If this is something that's gonna be a permanent mod on your Jeep, you're not looking for additional ground clearance or for that additional articulation that you can get from control arms, you're just staying on the road, you want this as a permanent solution to fix your caster and pinion, then I think spending a little bit more on this set that's gonna be a little bit stronger is probably a good idea. These are built very strong and very stout, especially when you compare them to the two-piece design of some of the less expensive control arm brackets on the market. These are going to be a 7 gauge steel, they're fully boxed and welded. As I said, these are gonna be very, very strong. You're not gonna get any flex or any movement out of these brackets versus some of the other ones. Of course, they have a black powder coat finish on them, which is gonna help protect them against any rust or corrosion, and they are designed to bolt right into place. This is gonna fix your pinion, this is gonna fix your caster, and as sort of a fringe benefit, you're also going to flatten out your control arm angles a little bit. The benefit of that is it allows your springs and your shocks to absorb a little bit more of the bumps when you're driving down the road versus a steeper control arm bracket which can transfer a little bit more of that shock into the frame. It's not the main purpose of installing a set of brackets like this, but it will be a little bit of a benefit. To get these installed on your Jeep, all you need to do is park the Jeep on a nice level surface. Go ahead and unbolt the control arms at the frame, loosen up the bolts at the axle, but you don't have to completely remove those. You'll then bolt this bracket onto the control arm brackets that are already existing on the frame side, and then bolt the control arms into the new brackets before you tighten up all of the hardware. That's it really. You don't have to do any other disassembly of the axle. All you need to do is make sure you only install one set of these at a time. Of course, having the other side with the control arms fully bolted in place is going to keep the axle centered under the Jeep. You'll only want to unbolt two control arms on one side at a time. But this is something that's a very easy install. It might take you around 2 hours to get it done, but you can do with some traditional hand tools in your driveway. These control arm brackets are around $175. And as I said, there is a set on the market that are two-piece design. They're gonna be about half the cost. In my opinion, if you're looking to these for a long-term solution, you aren't concerned about the ground clearance loss, you don't want the additional articulation of the set of control arms, you're gonna be running these for the long haul, maybe it makes sense to spend a little bit more on this set to have them installed for a long time and take advantage of all the strength and the high quality of the build that you're getting with this set. Of course, if you're just looking to a set of geometry brackets as a short term solution before you can afford to get a set of adjustable control arms, then maybe it makes sense to save your money and go with one of the other brands. So if you have 2 to 4 1/2 inches of lift on your JK and you either don't plan on installing adjustable control arms or you just don't have the funds for them yet and you're looking for something to fix your caster and your pinion in the meantime, a set of control arm brackets like this is gonna get the job done and then again save you some money over getting control arms.So that's my review of the JKS control arm bracket kit, fitting all 2007 and up JKs, with two to four-and-a-half inches of lift, that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

Good, strong quality
I'm not sure what the jeep would have driven like after installing the lift and before installing these, but I can tell you that my Jeep drives great with these installed. No flighty of sketchy feeling when driving at high speeds at all. Super strong build quality and materials for sure. Overall, I'm super happy. They were very easy and fairly quick to install by myself. No lift or jack needed for install either.Helpful (1)

A must have
I can't say enough about these, worth every penny. If you have a lift this is a must-have item. install time was about 20 min and super easy, just about anyone who can turn a wrench can put these in. I have a 6" lift on my Jeep JK 2016 and I was suffering from the Jeep wandering all over the road at speeds of 60 mph and the steering was soft due to the caster and pinion angle being so much. just installed them and oh my gosh am I happy. Pair these up with DB3 rear control arm brackets from Metalcloak.Helpful (2)

As others have stated, the driver side went on perfect for me. Got around to the passenger side and thought i was putting the bracket on wrong but it just didn’t fit. Had to grind bracket to make it go in. 2/10 installHelpful (2)

These are by far the highest quality correction brackets on the market that I know of. Extremely durable and precise construction. If you are needing a permanent solution (you do not plan to lift your Jeep anymore) these are the way to go. I have them paired with a 1.5 inch Teraflex leveling kit.Helpful (1)

Brackets did not work
For some reason, on my 2007, the brackets bottomed out at the mounting attaching points preventing the holes to line up. The fix would have been to file or cut the lower part on the frame. Also, even if the brackets were to sit flush, the holes seemed to be 1/4" off. I returned and purchased RC Countrys "flex" arms. They worked out great!Helpful (3)

One fit perfect the other one was bent wrong did not even come close. One was bent a quarter inch to you soon and no one caught it and they welded it up anyway QC should have Noticed. They had a cheaper set for $99 I decided to buy the better ones for $179 All I bought was mental anguish. Who pays for all the labor taking it back off the good side put in the vehicle all back together sending them both back in then I have to put them back in again. Who pays for all this labor. All I asked them for is to send me a new one for the bad side. No I had to send them both back. I should have purchased this product from Teraflex best company out there.Helpful (6)

Do I have to use bump stop extensions with this if I don’t go off roaring with my jeep
The JKS Control Arm Correction Bracket kit will require 2" bump stop extensions to work correctly both on and off road.
I just added rc635 lift with 33’s....I am getting different info..should I still need this and with an additional 2 inch bump stop extensions?
These should not be required for your lift. Bump stop extensions are not required but would help extend the life of your shocks.
Will these work for the rear control arms?
These are designed to work with the front control arms only.
You would need and alignment after installing correct?
It is recommended to get an alignment after installing the JKS Control Arm Correction Bracket since you'll be changing the geometry of the suspension.
