Nope...the rear control arm is way to forward on the frame to be the stock location for the LJ. As is the front to far back to be stock. This lift pictured above is either a custom "MID" arm or mid arm system of sorts.It's a short arm kit on a LJ. It's prob a Rubicon Express 3.5 inch or 4.5 inch short arm.
Main advantage is decreasing the control arm angle in relation to the ground. Being more parallel gives a smoother on road ride. And the longer arms also have a larger rotational movement compared to short arms.Related question. Long control arms let the axle sag lower. Is that the main perk of LA kits or am I wrong?
Okay thanks . Almost what I was thinking.AzTJ said:Main advantage is decreasing the control arm angle in relation to the ground. Being more parallel gives a smoother on road ride. And the longer arms also have a larger rotational movement compared to short arms.
Think of the frame end of the control arm as the center of the circle, and the arm is the radius. If the arm was short it would quickly come down and start to tuck under the Jeep with little movement. A longer arm keeps the end out farther away in the same amount of movement. Make sense?
I think those are the closest to the same as this lift but those lifts are still a little long. I could possibly go for one of them if I can't find this actual lift. Maybe it is even a custom job.I'd have to say it's a Rough Country or Skyjacker long arm "upgrade". It retains the stock skid plate and puts a skidplate spacer in there with control arm mounts attached to it.
that picture is not detailed enough to make a determination on what it is. get better pictures.I found this pic on the web. The long arm kit seems to have shorter control arms than any I have seen. I don't want super long arms. This one looks about where I would like to be with the control arm length. Any ideas of what kit this is?
