anyone running long arms with little lift? I have a 6.5" long are setup off a old xj and was gonna transfer it too my new one, but I took it wheeling with just a BB and some junk 30's and I had a blast. So I think I wanna shoot for 33's as low as possible, but still use the long arms.
1999 Jeep Cherokee.
2"BB for now.
The TnT kit has chassis side mounts up very high, probably the highest of any kit out there. Problem is the arms are bent up and in for clearance, so if you run the kit with too small of a lift, you might have some interference. If the arms were mounted that high, but straight, you'd be better off with a lower lift.
Length has a lot to do with it as well. My 3-link kit pushed my front axle an inch or two forward, and that's with about 5" of lift. If I lowered the front end down, it would go even further forward.
I have Re long arms. The shortest spring i have ran is a 3" spring with 35's. If your gonna run a true long arm in front with little lift its gonna take alot of work to set it up right. Right now i have some 4" springs in front & absolutely love how it works. Even with 4"springs alot of sheet metal was sacrificed to get some good up-travel.
Not to get off topic, but how do you like the Poly Performace 3 link?
It's awesome. No idea why more people don't run it. Maybe because you have to weld a UCA mount on the axle? I had it installed in a day with a few friends helping.
Competitive price with most other high-end long-arm kits, but it's not a radius arm, so it doesn't have any of those drawbacks. Built for race teams basically, so it's beefy as hell. Flexes for days but street manners are still great. One of the best mods I did to the Jeep.
