Stop already. It is not possible to move the lower to the upper without cutting off the upper mounts and making them wider.View attachment 204813
Haha, thanks Blaine. As a matter of fact, I'm currently drinking my morning cup!
The photo above is the one I'm referencing. That is your upper control arm and it need to be swapped to the top, as well as flipped so that the solid, non adjustable side is attached to the frame.
Not that Currie makes bad stuff, but I really love that all the Savvy arms are double adjustable. Makes things a lot easier in my mind.
I still have that Currie set up here in my driveway. It has double adjustable control arms top and bottom.
I didn't know until this thread, but Currie does make double adjustable arms. But more importantly, we know this combination of springs, arms and skids will work. We've seen it before.
I don't know. All I know is what I have here now and I know the kit is a relatively new purchase. I also haven't installed a set of Currie arms in a long time so they could be very old arms or very new arms, or just standard stuff that isn't talked about much.Did they switch to double adjustable arms top and bottom? This is the short-arm lift I had and it came with double adjustable uppers but not lowers:
Here are some measurements I have. Again, I have a 4.5" Metalcloak short arm lift with a 2-1/2" tuck on an 05 Rubicon TJ
DS angle 23*
Pinion angle 21.5*
DS length (center of U-joint @ axle to rear U-joint @ double cardan): 13"
LCA center of bolt height @ ride height: 19.5"
Rear coil length @ ride height: 11-3/4"
Bottom of 241 output dampener @ ride height: 22-1/4"
I'm not the OP. I was just throwing my numbers to him for reference as It appears we have similar vehicles, lift height, etc.
My track bar bracket does not scrape the tank. On a rare occasion, the diff covers does but just grazes it and if and when both wheels are stuffed or dropping both wheels off a ledge. It's Happy medium for me that works so far, in short arms, until I pony up for mids.
I've not seen a single picture that shows any of that yet.@Kevin Q I think what we are learning here is that there might be a difference between the double adjustable and single adjustable arm lengths when extended. If you have jj's at both ends with threaded fittings you would be able to extend the arm another inch or 2 vs a single threaded jj and a fixed jj. We just need to first make sure your axles are lined up correctly with the bump stops and there is nothing else fishy going on. Are you having any issues on the front axle? I assume the front uppers are also single adjustable?
