Upper control arm bushing?

I am looking for ideas for an upper control arm bushing/joint to fit the stock axle gear case ear on a TJ. I don't like the original rubber bushing because it looks like it will push out, the bolt is small, and the rubber won't twist enough for long travel. Another choice I found is Curries Johnny Joint. The 7/16 drilled attaching bolt seems too small for a single upper arm, or is it OK? The upper arm will be a custom long arm so almost any bushing or joint that fits the axle could be used.

Thanks for your ideas

I used an RE spherical joint, but I have two arms (the way it should be)...
TJ; ARB'd & ChroMo'd 1-tons; 42" IROK's; Atlas 4.3; 4-linked, 106" WB...

I used daystay JJ on axle end with 5/8" bolt and poly joint on frame end with 9/16 bolt
It works very good
Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed.
Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the
brewery and all of their hopes and dreams.
If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work
and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself,
It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come
true than be selfish and worry about my liver
