Okay now that my lift is in I come to any of you with a hypothetical question.

Depending on the all mighty fundage, if you needed to get longer or adjustable LCA's or UCA's, which would you get installed first and why?

Or, should I just wait till the funds are available for both at the same time?

TIA
Todd

My suspension lift included four replacements for the stock Lower Control Arms. These were fixed length arms. The first adjustable arms were rear UCAs from Tera, which were needed with the Slip Yoke Eliminator kit (to tilt the pinion up higher). I just replaced the front LCAs with RE adjustable flex arms - the adjustable part wasn't really necessary, but I needed the flexible joint because my control arm mounts kept getting ripped off.

I don't think I'll be replacing any other control arms until I invest in the long arm kit...

I like RE arms. The other brand I'd buy would be Currie. I have issues running heim joints in my area so the majority of control brands won't make the cut for me.

I've got the Currie uppers - if you go that route, check Summit Racing. They have deals every once in a while.

Interesting.....I was going to post this question tonight. My axle is pulled back about 2"(due to short arms). I am either going to get adj upper and lower arms to correct this.......OR......maybe front long arms. I dont need more flex, just need to correct the axle placement and handling. SORRY FOR THE HIJACK......JUST THOUGHT THE QUESTIONS ARE SOMEWHAT THE SAME.
