what length should the upper and lower control arms at 4.5 inches of lift
I started my lift today and ran into a problem. my lift from iro doesnt tell how long the control arms should be adjusted to, I mean it gives tells me to find the 18 and 5/16 lower control arm and install. Is this number how far it should be adjusted to center to center or what? it also says install upper control arms, since mine are adjustable what length should i put them at? for the front and rear.
Is there a specific length I need to adjust the uppers and lowers to? I figured you would keep the uppers stock and adjust the lowers according to the lift. But you guys say otherwise. The installation instructions just say to install upper control arms. The length of both upper and lowers are crucial to the drivability of the vehicle and I don't see why Iro would leave that information out.
So the adjustable ca's help with the pinion angle, right now I have the lowers extended to 18 and 5/16 from center to center on the rear and the uppers are adjusted to stock length. Should I move them out? It looks like the axle isn't out far enough to clear my tires and it would rub the front of the rear fender wells near the rocker arms.
Is there a chart I can go off from or somebody who runs the adjustys that works and what length are they using? I plan on running 33s.
Or should the axle just be centered in the wheel well?
Or is this something an alignment would take care of?
