A little vague in the question...what is your issue that you believe you need adjustable uppers?

Advantage...can set the pinion angles for sye installs and larger lifts.

Well then Yes. When you install the SYE you will need the upper adj arms to set your pinion angle. With out..you pinion angle will be way off and your U-joints will hate you and you'll have wonderful vibrations.
