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

thanks.

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.
