well the guy has the setup now and likes them. and without the Drop Brackets. and he also has a 2" spacer so 8.5" so i think that 6.5 with the Drop Bracket would be ok.

There is no way 8.5 inches of lift rides anywhere close to good. Those lower arms have to be pointing pretty far down.

8.5" with short arms?

I don't think so. Maybe for a strick Mud bogger, but 8.5" lift is useless with short arms, you are better off with 3-4.5" lift.

it does pretty good. deff has a lot more flex than mine, no doubt that Long Arms would be better but the short arms are just fine on it
