i know long arms are better....i think it has to do with how much they flex but im def not positive about that

They're control arms.

The more you lift and larger tires you have the closer the axles will become.

The long arms help to push your axles back to the originial position.

Take two pencils and put them end to end.

Now lift the the middle. see how the end gets closer? Same principal.

Long arms allow you to get back to the stock angles for a better on road ride and improved offroad flex. The smallest tire you should go with a long arm is 35's. The arms might scrape when coming down from stuff if you go with smaller tires, actually inhibiting your ground clearance when clearing stuff.

I am running 33's with mine and the bent or dog-legged arms make a huge difference.

Thanks,
No flex shots yet. took it on a shake down a few weeks ago and it flexed very well. looking to go on another trip first week of July. I went from a 4 inch short arm lift and 33's to a long arm and 35's what a huge difference on and off road. should have went long arm in the beginning.

I agree. While I'm only at 5.5" and 33s it rides nice but I find myself scraping them on rocks more than my sliders lol. The LAs are only at like a stock angle because they're mounted under the crossmember but I definatey want to go up another inch and I've got 35s waiting to Be put on.

I'll post pics of mine soon.
