You're one of the most knowledgable people on this forum without a doubt. I've looked at the definitions of them before but it didn't really stick. Thanks for any help.

With my 3" lift, Currie LCAs set to 16" restored enough of my caster and also eliminated the annoying 47-53 mph shimmy.

|Imped||Just visualize it.....lengthening the lowers will rotate the housing around the upper mount, moving the pinion down, lower ball joint forward and upper ball joint rearward....ie, increasing caster angle. By how much should you lengthen the arms? By the amount that puts your caster where you want it. The final length is a byproduct of caster.|

|PStov98TJ||Unlimited, I've been kicking around the idea of adj. CA's as well. So I was wondering, exactly how would you adjust the control arms? If I'm not mistaken you'd need to lengthen them right? And by how much? Thanks! Should help the OP too.|

|UnlimitedLJ04||you'll start by extending the lowers. you can also install uppers, but you likely will not adjust the uppers away from stock length.|

Adjustable Control Arms
I have a 3" Teraflex lift and I have no vibrations or DW... but my steering is too light compared to stock . I'm wanting to install adjustable front control arms to dial-in some caster and make my steering effort greater. Does it matter if I install upper versus lower control arms? The uppers seem to be a little cheaper, and I'd rather have threaded parts up & out of the way.
