trying to make up my mind

I've been thinking of buying Clayton front long arms and getting rid of the iron rock front long arms I have Claytons long arms in the rear

Just so you understand my iron rock front long arms around for the zj I have the xj front dana30 and it's maxed out for the alignment so I really need to buy the xj long arm
If i buy the claytons i can not only match my rear long arm kit i can adjust my front axle and push it forward about an inch for the bigger tires and possibly install my headers and if I ever change axles the front long arms will work

so should i spent the $1200 on the front Clayton long arms and new skid or $300 on the iron rock xj long arm and spend the money on other things

If I do go the claytons route i will sell the iron rock long arms and skid

You could go cheap and just modify the long arm to accommodate , I did . I had to shorten the upper link .

Cool. Just a little curious as to why you wouldn't just build your own front or modify the iron rock setup
