Set the rears so the bumpstops line up without pushing the diff into the gas tank or creating tire clearance issues on the fenderwells at full bump, and so the pinion angle is appropriate at ride height for the type of driveshaft you have.

If I make sure they are the same length from bolt hole to bolt hole as the factory then I should have no issues correct? But if I do this I could be loosing a little bit of articulation correct?

see my previous post. If you don't understand the terminology, do some research so it makes sense.

Your post is about as helpful as mine, lol.

TripleNickle Any idea on what those measurements should be?

Adjustable Controll Arm Installation

I just picked up a complete set of pre-owned rough county x flex control arms from a member( I know they are no currie lol). I could not pass up the deal. My question is:

I have a 2-3" lift ( not sure last owner installed it). Should I adjust the control arm to factory length? Or how long should I make them. They are currently adjusted to the 4" of lift length from the previous rig. Is there other items I should be careful about when replacing the factory control arms. Seem pretty cut and dry. Just dont want to open up a can or worms.
