Putting together 4.5" hybrid lift, have question..

I've been putting together parts for a 4.5" but thinking of going a little higher.

4.5" question...
If I were to leave it at 4.5", would I need aftermarket or longer fixed upper control arms? At this time I have a set of Rusty's adjustable lower control arms. Wasn't sure if it was needed or not.

5.5" question...
Was thinkikng of using adjustable upper and lower control arm. Going to use a spacer along with shackle but how about this track bar. RE1600. Do you think it could be used at this height? Will I have to go with something else? Was planning on making a double shear bracket, not sure if this would help. Seen other use it but not sure if it give any problems.

Your thoughts, suggestions and opinions always welcome...

Thanks for your help. Hope to one day have this completed..
