So I've truly delayed my full suspension upgrade plans of a 3 link up-front and a 4 link in the rear.. however I would like to put a larm arm upgrade on the front before heading to Arizona...

Can you guys recommend / advise me to stay away from certain designs and why.
I see lots of radius arm setups where the upper arms attaches to the lower...
I see lots of 4 links that plug into the factory locations.

Which are better and why... my main goal for doing this is ability to drive on the street... get away from death wobble.

The reality is that they are all good, but have different specialties.

Flex - 3 link or modified Radius Arm
Strength - 4 Link
Cost - Radius

Personally I would go with RockKralwer, Full Traction, or TNT Offroad. You are already familar with RK and the one person I know running their set up has Mog Portals and 43" TSLs under his XJ.

A lot of the JeepSpeed builds are using Full Traction because of how sturdy it is and it is a true long arm kit. Vs. a many of the other 4 link kits that are just mid arm designs. The reason I didn't use FT (and the reason you won't either) is they don't sell a Long Arm Upgrade; they are a CalMini Company don't try and reason with them.

If you want a Radius Arm set up, the TNT Y-Link is hard to beat. They had great customer service when I bought my D44 Truss from them.
