- Can be rebuilt without needing to replace the entire joint.
- Fully adjustable without needing to be removed or unbolted from the Jeep.

- Tough enough for racing.
Did you lift your liberty and are now having difficulty getting a proper pinion angle? These rear lower links are fully adjustable allowing you to dial in the perfect pinion angle to keep your rear driveshaft u-joints alive longer. Whether you’re looking for better on road handling or your bashing rocks against them in an offroad race these control arms will survive the abuse you throw at them.
These Jeep Liberty control arms are made from 2″ diameter DOM steel tubing with a 0.25″ Wall thickness and you have the option of selecting between a few different joints. You may select between a Barnes4WD Enduro Joint and a Forged Poly Joint.
Both joint options come with a 1.25″ thick shank and 9/16″ factory sized bolt hole. Optional 5/8″ bolt upgrade available but you will need to enlarge the bolt hole on the control arm mounts. These joints on our control arms will improve your rear suspension flex dramatically. Your vehicle will feel more stable and planted. Especially if your current control arm bushings are worn out which can cause a side to side sway when you get on and off the gas.

When Barnes 4WD designed the rebuild-able Enduro suspension joint we combined the best materials, the best manufacturing processes and the best steel and polyurethane treatments available all in one joint. The body of the Enduro Joint is Forged 4140 heat treated Chromoly steel. We did not try to cut any corners by making a short threaded shank like a heim joint instead we give you 4.75 of 1.25-12 threaded shank. That is over two inches longer than 1.25 heims on the market. The Enduro Joint s ball is made from 52100 bearing steel and incorporates the high misalignment spacers all into one piece of steel. The spherical bearing is then Hard Chrome plated to provide an ultra smooth surface and has proven to provide excellent corrosion protection. The mounting width of the Enduro Joint is 2 5/8 and accepts a 9/16 bolt with 26° of total misalignment (13° in either direction). The cups that the spherical bearing rides on are an 88 durometer polyurethane that ensures maximum life, no squeaks like heim joints and they help to dampen axle vibrations felt through the chassis. The body of the joint is gold zinc plated to ensure that the Enduro Joint looks great for the life of the joint. Joints will need to be greased before installation.
Forged Poly Joint
If you are looking for the best in a forged polyurethane we have you covered, we designed these to be the strongest joints on the market! They are forged from one piece of 4130 chromoly, making them much stronger than other inferior joint designs that have the threaded shank welded on. They have a 2 5/8 mounting width, are available with a right hand or left hand 1 ¼-12 threaded shank that is 2 3/4″ long, and are available for use with a 5/8 or 9/16 bolt. A yellow zinc plating is applied to help prevent corrosion, the inner sleeve has the same coating and is a one piece machined design, not a rolled piece of uncoated steel like most polyurethane joints include. A grease fitting has been integrated to make lubrication an effortless task. These joints are perfect to use on the frame end of your suspension links to help stop the transmission of vibration into the passenger compartment.
Please Note: These are all hand built to order and may take 5-7 business days to fabricate before shipping. If you need them sooner please contact us and we will see if we can get them to you a bit quicker.
These will be a direct bolt in for a 2002 – 2012 Jeep Liberty. A wheel alignment is highly suggested after installation. We also recommend having these installed by a professional. Modifying your vehicles suspension may alter the handling of your vehicle. Buyer must verify that these parts conform to all applicable laws for on-road use before purchase. No refunds on built to order items.
