Lower rear control arms/upper control arms

Being tired of the vibrations above 60m/h, I have an idea, I would use the old original lower control arms and put them up - as upper ones. Lower ones I use are adjustable ones.
Why? To reduce the driveshaft angle and save on the upper arms purchase.

Anyone has done that?

I have 4" lift with sye kit and lower Rough trail adjustable ones.
Will that work? (Longer arms...= smaller angle = better cv/pinion angle alignment = less vibration)

It sounds like it would work while you save the coin and buy some adj arms. Give it a go and let us know how it works for you.

Thank you guys. I will let you know.
I have to order them in US, have them shipped to Prague, tax them - and then you are at double the cost with the delivery in 2 months:-).
