Watched Tf's video. Awesome video for those who have not seen it.
They mention wheel base and how lifting and tire size affect it.
My question is how much WB is lost at different lift heights. 2"-3"-4" with the stock control arms/stock 32's.

I tried searching google but came up with nothing.

I would guess lcg would be the biggest impact on going higher on stock tires. Smaller tires will give you more wheel base. But not in a good way. When you texted me, i thought your plan was ok but I'm planning on lengthening and not shortening. Just time...

Yea... Still undecided on what to do.

Send them back and have the RK uppers shortened.
Shorten myself. Pretty easy.
Leave as is, buy the longer lowers and do the 1"
I already have the correction wedges. The swaybar needs to relocate. Not sure about the track bar. The Tf Bracket brings it back a little.

I'm loosing sleep over it lol....

It depends on how easy it is for you. You know there are more benefits for off roading. Wheel base and lack of space has lost me a lot of sleep.

RK just uses a bandsaw. I will rough cut .400 and machine the ends perfectly square.
Plus they over drill and tap the holes almost 3/4" on each side for this purpose.
On request they will shorten the uppers.

My way of thinking. RK is one of few company's that move the axle back 1"
Most arms will give you 1/2-3/4" anyways.
Synergy's #'s from what I heard are perfect for most mid arms systems.
Will get the wheelbase back and allow for pinion/caster adjustment.

With all that being said. I should just do the 1"

Ain't this fun
