I ordered a procomp 3" lift for my 91 XJ, these are the 4 control arms i got with it. 2 of them should be right for my LCA's, but from looking under my jeep the uppers are different on an XJ.
What jeep are these for?

They look like lower control arms...probably XJ, TJ, MJ, or ZJ.

I would not suggest using them though. Polyurethane bushings with not form of articulation will destroy control arms bracket unless you're using them for strictly onroad driving with NO articulation.

It looks like you got 4 lower arms instead of 2 lower and 2 upper.

So ehirner u are saying I shouldnt use these lca's because the bushings dont allow articulation in the lca bracket?

Use rubber, this will stretch and move. They wear out faster but allow more flexing of the arms. Did you buy the arms from a company or an individual? If from a company I would let them know you got the wrong arms and see if they have rubber bushings to replace these with.
I would also let an individual know that you got the wrong parts and try to get your money back if you bought it off them.
Save the red bushings for trail spares or sell them.


I do not know if these will fit in the RE arms but you might call and ask.

Here is a write up that may help you.

Here is what an upper arm looks like.


Looks like you just need to get the upper arms replaced.
