MauiTJ I have a 3.5" lift from rock krawler. The Lift lacks everything I need and as a new guy in the jeep community i learn as I build. I don't have adj control arms. Only the rear uppers going in this week for my sye.

Also check out what this guy emailed me:
"Your control arms need to be longer/adjusted on the side with the coil closer to the bumpstop.* Hard to tell from the pictures, but I would guess you are running close to 4"+ lift with stock control arms?* Have you had an alignment lately?* The shop usually won't adjust the arms for alignment unless you ask them to, but if you had a recent printout of the specs after alignment it would tell how much your caster was off on that side.* Lower control arms can be adjusted with the adjustment shoes in the unibody side control arm mounts if an XJ, but from the pictures I would bet this is a TJ Wrangler, which will have the adjustable cam bolts in the lower axle mounts.* Can't get too carried away trying to match the other side because you have stock control arms and you will throw your alignment all out of whack with that much adjustment on one side, so you will have to slightly lengthen one and slightly shorten the other.* Without aftermarket control arms you won't be able to keep those bumpstops from getting close to the coils with that height, but you can get a little more breathing room with those slight adjustments.

Hope that helps.

UnlimitedLJ04 very common for lifted vehicles. yes, you can adjust it...droop the axle, slide a 2x4 in there and hit it with a BFH. bingo, fixed.

for reference...that is the bumpstop, there are three main components: the spring/bumpstop tower, the bumpstop cup, and the jounce bumper.

moneypit-TJ How high are you lifted? (The jeep) looks like you need to adjust your lower CA's forward if you have adjustable lowers that is.
