If you think you might need them down the road why not just buy them now if you can afford them? They are nice cause it gives you more adjustability.

When I put my lift on 5 yrs ago it came with lower fixed arms, last weekend I put on some rear upper and lower adjustable ams. I finally could center my tires in the wheel well and adjust the pinion angle. When I bought the lift I should of got the adj arms.

I wish I had. Brand new lift - 1 day old. Already replacing the fixed rear with adjustable.

get the adjustables. You will be happier down the line. also, it will allow you to get a lot of your caster back thereby allowing for a better alignment.

Ideally, once the mod bug has struck, you will want to get adjustable pieces like the track bars and control arms as you may one day want to go higher lift wise. if this the case, you can use all of your linkages with new springs or spacers. this is all assuming you stay with a short arm setup or don't go crazy with 6" lift springs or something.
