compatable?

just a quick brain pick. i was looking at piecing a new suspension kit togeather and found rubicon express 7.5" coil springs? i was wondering if the RE long arm upgrade kit would work with this kit. but if it would work in conjunction togeather then wouldnt they sell it as a kit? cause i couldnt find it as a kit. my thoughts are the adjustable uppers that are used with the RE long arm kit wont extend long enough to center the axle properly? would this assumption be correct? would they only be able to be used with a custom long arm lift or am i just thinking too much into it?

Look at the Clayton long arms, I have heard they are better than the RE. I made my own long arms and used the RE skid plate as an attachment point. If you have any welding skills this can be done much cheaper and you can get pretty close measurements off the RE web site. I built my 8 control arms for about $320.

BTW, Im not sure if the RE long arms will work with the 7.5" springs.

2001 TJ Built, Wrecked, then Built Bigger, then rolled and fixed again, now rolled again. Do you see a pattern!!
