I'm trying to figure out what length to run my control arms. I have been searching all day, and get differnt numbers everywhere I search. Thinking 16" lowers. Start at 15.25" for the front uppers and wing it for the rears based on pinion angle. Any thoughts from the peanut gallery?

15x8

Ended up going with the smaller lock rings. I would have had to wait another 6-8 weeks for the CORE rings. 24 bolt holes I think.
