For you since you are lifted sky high. I'd recommend the IRO adjustable a-arm for you. That'd be the best way to go for you.

For me. Since I'm at about 2.5 lift in the rear. I think ill just go with a whole new mopar arm and mopar ball joint all installed for me for 300 bucks. By the time I do the IRO arm for me it'll be near 400 bucks.

Yup, it sucks, but the IRO arm is a great arm for lifts. Mopar arm will work for me. It should still be able to handle 2.5 inches of lift.

IRO a-arm is $300 and works for 2.5". why would you waste money on another OEM a-arm only to install the IRO later?

Because I can get the OEM a arm with a new ball joint installed and done for 300.

It'd cost me 300 + 50 shipping + 50 install for the IRO arm for me.

I'm not sure what ill do yet, if I do install the OEM one, I won't do the IRO one down the road.

You could just throw on some rear long arms and skip doing it in stages...

Don't get the Omix-Ada bushings. Get mopar bushings.

Going to need some more lift to do long arms. I want to keep it at 2.5 inches for now. Maybe one day do 6.5 inch of 35's and 4.56 gears haha

Way to lazy to do the rear a-arm, that thing is a bit** or at least can be. I don't have the tools for it either. Or a way to get it out if its stuck. Its worth it for 50 bucks man. Haha

How's it fit? I would love rear long arms since the kit for it replaces that pos a arm set up! But I don't have the $1,000 lying around lol.
