How low can you go with RC long arms?

Anyone go lower than 4.5" on RC's long arms?

I have the choice of selling my xj for a more fuel efficient means of transportation OR modify it so it suits my needs and that basically means lowering it as low as I can and running smaller tires.

How low do you think I could go with RC's radius arms?

Thank you! Just what I needed to hear. Do the arms come close to hitting the frame on uptravel?

What springs (f&R) did you go with? I'm thinking OME springs with a spacer and their own AAL if needed. That's the first lift I put on my xj years ago and it was a dream to drive.

I'm running Rustys 3" HD coils and OME 3.5 leafs with no lift shackle relocators. I haven't checked to see how close the arms come to the frame at full flex, but I do know they clear.
