Currie Short Arms vs Rough Country Long Arms

Hello.

At the moment I have Currie control arms, JKS track bars, 4" OME springs and OME long travel shocks in my TJ.

I could buy a Rough Country LA upgrade kit for only 500$.

Would the ride become better with the long arms?
Or should I better keep the Currie short arms?

Thanks for your help and sorry for my bad English.

I would stick with Currie. The LA upgrade will rob clearance due to the way it bolts up. Also, the Johnny Joints are a much better quality joint than what RC uses.

I wish there was still an OME 4" lift (springs and shocks) for the TJ, that's what I'd get to complement my adjustable (currie) SA kit.

That moment when you look at a really nice JK and think to yourself, "Well I SUPPOSE I could see myself trading in my TJ for one of those, but for those ugly ass door handles."

OME still has 4" springs and 3-5" shocks.

Nice, I will be getting these. There wasn't any "kit" so I just assumed they didn't exist.
