Long arm lift

Is there such thing as a budget LA lift? I'm told there's no better ride than long arm. But I will not be doing any extreme crawling but mild to moderate stuff. Need help!

yes there are budget LA's.

they'll ride worse than a well setup SA setup.

remember, the arm length doesn't determine ride. the design of the suspension system does. setup a good design, and it'll ride fine...regardless of arm length.

X2. I had a Rubicon Express long-arm suspension with RE's "best" Monotube shocks in my last TJ (stolen) & now have a short-arm Currie suspension with OME NItrocharger shocks in my replacement '04 TJ. The 04 handles better, performs a LOT better offroad, handles the whoops of washboard desert roads better, and rides just as well on the street... if not better.
