question of morality

I'm going to be putting my CRD up for sale pretty soon but I have stock upper control arms and the front end is at 22.5" hub to fender. I'm not sure I feel okay selling it like that. What would you guys do? I have Moog UCA's on it with only 20k miles on them right now.

I've got 265/70r17s on it so just putting it back to stock isn't really an option (and I lost one of my stock front springs) Money (lack of) is the cause of selling so buying a set of lifted UCAs isn't an option nor is buying stock sized tires. I was hoping maybe I could find a set of XK hemi front springs cheap and a 1/2" spacer maybe to just clear the larger tires but keep it safe.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Hendrix,
There are much larger things for you to check your moral compass.
Just advertise the truth, that is all any future buyer could want.

For 5 grand I will take that burden from you. LOLOLOLOL

Sell it. Just explain the whole situation in an understandable way.

Mine is at 25.5" with stock arms and 265/70/17's and it is fine. has some great wheel travel. .. and is in the dirt 1 or 2 times weekly.

Beyond the 31.6" tires is where the arms have the issue.

Put 33's or 285's on there and you need those arms or they break.

I never said thanks for the input, fellas. After many spreadsheets my accountant wife decided it'd be better to sell her Rav4 (much higher monthly payments) and her to start driving the CRD. Putting it back to stock height though as she has a hard time getting into it while pregnant and then with the baby in a carseat will be a problem, too. Just ordered some hemi commander front springs for it and will get some stock sized AT tires. Least I get to keep it a little longer!
