Looking at RE 3.5 long arm for LJ

I want to start looking at lifts for my jeep. I want to keep the ride as street friendly but also be able to hold its own off road. I ran a Rubicon express super flex with 3.5 coils and a 1 inch body lift and ran 35;s. How ever I don't want to run 35s on this jeep right away and run 33's. Does anyone know if the control arms for the 3.5 LA lift are the same ones used for 4.5 and 5.5? Also what more is involved with lifting a Rubicon LJ...I know my exaust will have to be altered... Do i need a new drive shaft?

I'm pretty sure all the control arms on their long arm lifts are the same, just springs are different. As far as the drive shaft goes, I don't think you'd need one with 3.5 springs.
