Xj front lower control arms on a zj?

So I've read a few places with people putting wj control arms for the curve and boxing on a xj and zj. I also read that xj control arms are 3/4 of an inch longer. So if wj fits on both, couldn't they swap too? I read also that the caster is adjusted at the end connecting to the body rather than by the axle but couldn't you just swap them in and use the cam bolts from the zj in the factory location? I am wondering cause I think I need longer arms since I lifted to 3.5-4 inches. I was thinking this would help out my caster that's at about 5. I know I can buy control arms but I'm broke and I got a deal on the jeep, I rather not drop alot into it.
Thanks for any input.

Not sure about length but they will bolt up, the xj's use an alignment shoe, but in your case it would still use the eccentric washer/ cam bolt/

Anyone know if the wj rear lowers work in the front of a zj? That would deft add some length.
