Adjustable LCA'S or not?

Im am going to order up the RE 4.5 lift this week but the place I plan to buy everything from, suggested that I also need to buy some adjustable LCA's or I will have severe DW. How true is this ?

Well your definately going to need a way to adjust your castor/pinion angles but I would suggest adjustable uppers!They're not only cheaper but maintain the tire/wheelwell placement!

I just talked to the local 4x4 shop again and they insist that it is the lower control arms that adjust castor and pinion angle. But I trust what you all are saying much more than them. Gonna have to keep looking, thought I found a good deal , the place is local and could get everything that I wanted without killing me on shipping.

Well LCA's and UCA's adjust castor and pinion angle, you need longer (not adj) LCA's to get the proper wheelbase and tire placement, use the uppers to adjust the caster and pinion angle. If they get your toe adjusted correctly and get your castor close to the stock, 7*and have your tires balance really well, DW should not be a problem.

Stop talking to the local guys <wink>

I'm running 6" of actual lift with fixed LCA's and stock uppers (haven't got around to installing the UCA's LOL) with no issues.
