hi first off i wanted to say hi and i have already learned alot just reading and looking through threads and wanted to say thanks. But i got a problem i had purchased a 4 inch rough coutntry lift for my jeep along with 33x 11.5 tsl thornbirds. I was going to put the lift on tomorow. But, i had purchased it new besides control arms and springs but the problem is i think the guy ripped me off and gave me stock arms. will they work or no? I am pretty sure their stock because my father in law had put the same kit on and had his old control arms were the same. so i figured they wouldnt work. Any information would help. could i use the stock arms i was told it would pull the axle in to much sorry i am not great with suspension stuff thanks adam.
Ok i talked to the guy and he swore up and down it would work. I measuredthe oneson my jeep and the ones from roughcountry on another jeep exact same model i had purchased. They were a quarter of an inch different. Would it make the springs mount different and everything else????? Thanks adam
Are we talking about uppers or lowers here? The rough country lift comes with new lowers....but it does not come with new uppers. The new lowers are tubular and you retain the stock uppers. Although i would recommend at some point replacing the upper stock ones, i turned mine into pretzels gettin too much air. I replaced mine with adjustables.

i know a guy who is running 33" bfg all terrains on his stock jeep. if you stay on the street you should be ok. he doesn't rub over railroad tracks or anything as long as nobody sits in the back. he will rub over a speed bump if someone is sitting in the back though.
i ran 32's with no lift and never came close to rubbing on road so 1" extra inch would mean minimal rubbing at most. i still had a couple inches before the tires hit the flares even when parked up on a curb
i wouldn't wanna run this setup for a long time but for temporary use you'll be fine. btw, on another board the guy had a dilemna and installed his 33's temporarily until he could install his lift and he was fine.
