control arm bad angle??

hey jeepforum take a look at my short arms and give me ur input

1 the fist pic is sitting on flat ground
2 the second pic is flexed halfway
3 the third pic is showing how my axle is being pulled back at half flex

when i fully flex the control arm gets to about a 75 degree angle its pretty bad i dont have a pic of it but.....its bad.

drop bracket or long arm obviouslly long arm is way better but expensive. so would a drop bracket fix this problem

Yes. After about 4" of lift control arm drop brackets are beneficial. They will smooth out the bumps on pavement and give you more flex.


A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.
