Longarm lift instal question

I am putting a teraflex long arm kit on my jeep. I am ready to bolt the arms on, but I am not sure if the adjustable end goes to the frame mounted bracket, or to the axle. Any help would be great. Thanks, Jared

I have the old style kit. My short adjustable ends are mounted on the frame side.

I was leaning towards going that route. I figured it might help keep debris out of the threaded ends. THANKS!!

You seem to like your kit pretty well?

I have modified the kit to where I like it. I installed Superlift UCA drop brackets to fix the UCA angles, and used a RE front trackbar that hinges the trackbar to flex vs. fighting itself at the joint.

I don't know. I put on adjustable UCA's with the lift. I put on the drop brackets a few years later. They really helped with the handling and the rotation of the axle when flexing.
