Hey now, do front long arms replace front control arms? If so, is it all 4 front control arms? If not, is it just a extra add on?

Sorry if this is a dumb question, just trying to understand it a bit more

There are different types of front long arms, but to answer your question, yes they replace the front control arms.

Yes they replace your current short arms. Some kits you need to cut off your short arm mounts on the uni-body and others you don't. Some are 4 arms and some are 3 arms. Well radius arms. Do a quick google search to see what I am talking about.

Have fun,

AFAIK none of the kits out there utilize stock body-side CA mounts. You don't have to cut them off, but you aren't exactly using them either.


Edit: at least not lowers.
