generally, short arms are shorter in length than long arms. short arms usually refer to utilizing stock mounting locations. most of the time, long arms refers to not using stock mounting locations.

that's about as detailed as it's going to get until you start learning the nuances of suspension design.

X2 there plenty of threads on here and other Jeep sites to give you a good idea of what you want. Make sure you read through the threads, you have to weed out some of the pissing matches but there is a lot of good information.
