I think this might work

I have a short arm rough county 4" lift. It is alright but I am hooked and want more. While trying to fix the death wobble I ordered a set of adjustable upper control arms from Rustys. I want to change my setup to a long arm kit. I really like IRO kit, but I have already spent money on the uppers. So I am thinking about buying the long arm lowers from Rustys off road to save money. Where it gets tricky is IRO has mount for the long arm lowers for 100. Where as Rustys are incorporated with the skid plate and is 370. So I want to buy the lowers to match my uppers from Rustys but buy the IRO mounting kit. Had anyone done this before?

Why not get the full RC long arm upgrade?

You cannot run short arm uppers with long arm lowers. If you want long arms, return the uppers and buy the upgrade kit you want, whether its IROs or RCs, or anyone elses.

My uppers r fully adjustable and talking with rusty yesterday he said those are the arms that come with the kit anyway. That is why I didn't want to waste the money I already spent.

Those are the arms that come with their SHORT arm kit. Their long arm kit uses radius arms where the uppers attach to the lowers instead of the uniframe. If you have short arm uppers and long arm lowers, your axle will not move the way it is intended.

I am just going by what rusty had said. Obviously I had doubts or concerns as to why I took the time to post and ask the question.
