With the Duroflex Joint, the clevite does not get worked as hard, so is a better compliment to the Duroflex.
Thanks for the quick response!!

I think they have been posted elsewhere but IIRC:

16 inches eye to eye collapsed
18 inches extended

that's what mine measured anyways...

This is for the lowers, single adjustable MC duroflex arms.

Btw the single adjustable on go to 16 inches eye to eye at the shortest length. My arms were ok with my lift but they will not adjust to stock length.

But, but, but they say 15.5" for the lowers. Stock is 15.75. Just saying I'd love to find out they go down to 15.5" like in the chart above??
