With fixed arms, you can't adjust your driveline or move the axle how you please. So if you get driveline vibs cause by a bad driveline angle, then you can not adjust the vibs out.

Also, longer lower arms should be put with new upper arms. This way you can achieve maximum adjustability and can move the axle front or back to get the wheel where it needs to be.

Can I switch to long arms or adjustable control arms in the future, if necessary? I really don't want to drop 1400 bucks right off the bat for a 80% on road vehicle.

Thanks for the replies guys

How about 265/70/17's, Will I need spacers for the stock wheels?

The control arms are poly so yes, it will more than likely squeak.

They will fit, and you will want spacers otherwise they will rub on the control arms when making sharp turns.

When I had 265/70/17 BFG AT's they didn't hit the CA's when turning. I have Goodyear Wrangler ST's in the same size, and they do. Must be a manufacturer thing.

Zone is also currently offering free shipping, so it does make it very competitive.

The P/A is not necssary with our kit b/c of the adjustable track bar - built from 1 1/4" solid stock and 1" threads.

The CA's are 1/4" DOM and are greasable so there shouldn't be any sqeaks as long as they are greased properly.

The biggest tires we fit were 255/75R17 BFG Mud Terrain on stock JK wheels (6" BS).

I have the 4" Zone lift on my TJ, The ride is excellent. My bushings were noisy, but I greased them up... Now they dont make a sound.

I did not use the drop bracket. Instead I have adjustable JKS Tb in the rear and in the front. Also I bought adjustable uppers for the rear to get the pinion angle back to normal. I ditched the springs and went with RE springs too. I also recently got rid of the tcase drop and put in an sye with ds.

So pretty much I only have the lower CAs and the shocks...
