Rear Long arms with 2" lift possible?

Is it possible to run rear long arms with only a 2" lift in the rear? Thanks guys I'm aware that some require exhaust mod, but would lean towards one that doesn't like rustys rear long arms which are only $270 for the pair.

It's completely unnecessary. Stock arms are fine up to 4". Why would you want to spend an extra $270 in something that serves no purpose at 2"?

Ok he asked if it was possible, not for your opinions... the only issue I can see is clearance, you'll have to cut off the lca mounts for sure, but I'd assume it would work besides that. Are you considering la's for the a arm as well?

Thanks for clearing that up. I didn't think about the lower arm mounts. I would probably only do the IRO rear arm at most not the long travel arm. See, I'm trying to make the ride as plush as possible and short arms just don't cut it, especially after going LA on the front. My buddy's wj on long arms is excellent in the rear granted he is at 4". If you look at older land cruisers they also have long arms from the factory and they ride way better.

Yeah it could be done I bet. You might have to cut out the stock lca mount but I think it could be done. I'm on short arms rear with 6 of lift and I wish I had LA's. What brackets would you use with the rustys arms?

If I go that route, Rustys sells the brackets for the rear arms in their complete kit, it's just not listed separately on their site. I'm sure they would part it out for a sale if you call them.
