1BLKJP You don't by chance know how much thread there is total?

I know that at least on Control Arms you don't want anymore than a half inch of thread showing.

Rockodile I have had the RE and do have an RE LA lift. I really didn't care for the RE TB though ( Mainly the upper bracketry). I ended up getting the JKS adjustable (OGS 125? '03TJ) and it has done me very well. I perfer the Johnny Joint over a rod end or a Hiem Joint, after 2-3 years use I haven't had any issues other than keeping the bolt tight initially, double nutting solved the issue on that though.And I keep it clean and greased

Did have a friend break his upper clean loose from frame but then again that was at one of the Hammers. Seems to me I mailed my RE to him.

In the mean time I am going to weld up something brace my existing upper front track bar mount from the other side of the frame.
