Front lower control arms adjustable

Can you use the rear upper adjustable control arm for the front lower control arm to get the proper caster angle? I have recently put on 33x12.50x15 on my 04 tj and this thing is drifting all over the place. Money is tight and i have the rear adjustable control arm for a slip yoke eliminator and right now steering is more important than the driveline. Thanks for the help guys.

Have you checked your toe in? Mine was wandering a bit that was the main reason.

I know the toe in is off i just installed a new tie rod and drag link. It was wondering before the new tires. I had 31x10.50x15 on before and it has gotten much worse with the larger tires. I'm getting a alignment tomorrow, but from what i've read here with larger tires you get the improper caster angle and the wondering.

Nope. Bushing/ joint sizes are different (smaller on the uppers) and the lengths are different.
