Control arms: build or buy?

I want to get some adjustable control arms. Is it worth to buy these ready from someone or build them myself? With joints and metal costing a decent chunk, is why I am asking..

If buy - any recommendations that get the PBB thumbs up?

I don’t get signatures on the mobile app, so if there’s one I’m sorry. But are you talking basic arms, no real bends. Get correct tubing and end joints and learn or do your own. I would any day of the week. If you have the know how. It should be cheaper then purchasing, if you don’t include your time at $/per hour

Dodge arms need bend for less steering rubbage. Get some Synergy shit and be done.

Synergy is overhyped IMO. I bought Core 4x4 for my 97 running 37s. No bend. No rub. No ridiculous offset on the rims either.

Two friends of mine built their own fixed-length arms over a weekend. 1.5 to 2" longer IIRC. Err on the side of more caster, not less. Track bar cut, welded, sleeved, plus a Luke's Link on the TRE to combat the wear.
