Have Decided to Replace Bent Rigging

I want to thank everyone for their advice. I did a better inspection of the rigging after some research and looking at some photos of damage caused by bad rigging. I've decided to replace all the rigging. My budget is not happy. But vs. possible cost if not fixed , it's a no brainer. Any suggestions on where to get rigging. I looked at local places. Looks like $400-$700 dollars for my boat.

JSI, The Sailing Source Try these guys. Had a friend ship his old standing rigging to them to use as a template and they shipped back new ones. Perfect fit. He was (and still is) the cheapest tightwad I have ever known and JSI was by far the most competitive. No affiliation.

Wow, that seems like a lot for a SJ 21.. but maybe not. Two uppers, two lowers a fore and aft stay right? All 1/8"?

Yeah that's right. One of the lowers has two broke strands, so I'm replacing both. Also replacing the toggles and eye bolts on uppers and lowers. The uppers are in better shape, but I'm still replacing them in a week or so. The fore and aft stay are both newer by the look of them. So, they get replaced last. I would love to replace it all at once but can't.
