Control arms

The adjustable control arms I have are bumping into frame after I pulled out my lift. I want to install oem arms, I see the upper ca brackets, but don't see the lowers. Where do they mount?

Thanks for any help

More info needed. What kind of lift did you remove (and for the love of god why)?

Was it a long arm kit? OEM Lower control arm brackets might have been removed.

Pics help

Yeah I am in the same boat. I have all those stock parts just sitting in the garage collecting dust.

It is a long arm kit, the lift was from RC, and being my dd, I hated how it rode. I think the cas are from RC but not sure. I'm saving up for a new lift, but for now the ride is better.

Your ride wasn't bad due to height. It was bad due primarily to the RC shocks. Your factory lower mounts are gone so if you want to swap back to stock length arms, you'll need to fetch some universal mounts and weld them onto the frame in the correct spots and orientation. With the axle centered and at ride height, as long as you've got a stock arm available that'll fill in the blank of where to put the mount.
