17.25" for the lowers and 15.5" for the uppers is the short-arm recommended lengths. I would recommend long-arms oir control arm drop brackets at that height though to make the ride bearable.

  2. Sold'99 WJ limited, 4.7L, 3" IRO lift. Bilstein shocks, JK rubicon wheels, 255/70/17's, carolina driveshaft, IRO adjustable control arms, IRO adjustable A-arm

Thanks for the info. I will have to measure mine tomorrow to make sure they are the correct length.

Did you find that info on a website or is that what yours are set to?

http://www.yuccaman.com/jeep/re_db.html Those are just the basic recommended lengths. You may have to tweak them a little to get the proper caster/pinion angles.
