srsbc Thanks for your response. I ordered the RE 3.5 Super Flex w/ adjustable upper arms, going with the matching RE shocks (which I am told are made by Blisten). I went a slightly different direction with the tires> I was set on 33x12.5 but would have needed to buy new rims. Opted to go with 285 75R16 Pro Comp M/T Extremes. We'll see how it turns out..

fishband I just picked up my 06 rubi lj last saturday and have been researching the same appears the re7000-3 comes with adjustable upper control arms which I believe are necessary to adjust the pinion angle....hope others will join in and help. I am not sure about the shocks....

Bone The only advantage is adding the adjustable uppers in place of the stamped steel factory control arms. A spacer IS NOT necessary nor is a SYE or new drive shaft for the LJ due to it's longer DS length. RE has, at least in the past before their reaquistion, made fairly good shocks that provide a good ride on and off the road. I'm not sure about their current quality but I'd assume they're still the same.

Advise for an LJ lift


I am looking to install a RE 3.5 Super Flex short arm lift on my '05 Rubicon Unlimited. I have a couple questions:

What is the advantage / dis-advantage between the standard super-flex lift (RE7000) and the same lift with upper adjustable arms (RE7000-3)? The cost difference looks like it is about 500-600 between the two.

Is a spacer necessary for the drive train? Should I also replace the SYE and rear CV drive shaft?

Any recommendation on replacement shocks? I use this rig on both the street and off road.

Thanks for your input.
