Name that suspension! 06 Jeep Rubicon Unlimited

I hope someone out there can help me. I recently purchased a 06 Used Rubicon Unlimited. It has what I believe to be a 4 inch coil lift with 2 inch spacers ( above the springs ). The upper arms are all adjustable, however the lower arms are solid with a slight bend in each. The shock are stamped explorer ( which led me to think this was a pro comp setup ) however pro comp does not sell this combination. I want to set up the suspension due to the fact It has a slight pull to the left, but cannot find instructions on how long the upper arms should be front and rear ( eye to eye ). Has anyone seen this setup before ( below are Links to pics ). I also included pics of the steering which I believe is a currie setup???, not sure on the adjustable track bar which bolts to the original mount. Any help someone can provide would be appreciated.

Please see links

I'd second the rough country as well. The Lower control arms look the same as the ones that came in my 4" Series II except bushing color. Mine are black, but I heard they changed those out recently

X2, those look like RE uppers but the lowers are pretty generic looking to it's hard to say on them. You got lucky on the steering, that is indeed from Currie.

Find a guy called Mr.Blaine if you need info on the Currie Steering

Seems to be a sourced together lift and I'd imagine it'll do alright. The uppers will help with the Pinion angle and the lowers are longer with helps with the heights. What kind of trackbar is on both front and rear?

Attached are links to the front and rear track bars

Front ( is adjustable but mounts to the stock bracket not sure what Mfg)

In your Guys ( and Girls ) opinion what would you start with in length for the uppers in the front. ( The rear pinion angle looks good probably wont change anything in the rear )
