upper or lower adjustable control arms

I've been looking and looking but do you need both upper and lowers for a larger lift or can you sneak awaywith only the uppers?

With a full blown short arm kit you are only a few hundred away from a long arm kit.

I personally got fixed lowers that were the length I needed and got adjustable uppers to be able to dial in the pinion angles. If you are lifting it 5" or more then you better get your wallet out and get a long arm kit. Then plan on getting your wallet out again to buy all the stuff that the kit didnt come with to make it perfect (if your a picky bastard like me).
