I just wanted to show my latest project at Titan Machines 1 inch longer control arms on a 2001 Dodge Cummins with 3 1/2 inch lift. These were made with Ballistic joints and DOM tubing[
To answer your question I guess is I like a challenge and second of all when I first started this project I was trying to turn 33"x15.5"x18" on 10"x18" rims with only 2" of lift with out rubbing and with my after market front bumper I had a lot of room between the bumper and tire compared to backside of tire to fender .Im curious as to why you are going with 1" longer arms. We already know that 1/2" longer arms work great, so why are you going through all the extra work to gain another 1/2"? What are the benefits that you gain to offset the amount of work it takes to run them?
The shock towers were designed so I could run the same part# of bilsteins that are in the front as I have in the rear .Here's a question for ya... Those shock mounting towers... are they the same heighth as stock ones or can they be made an inch shorter to gain lift?? Sorry it this is a stupid question...
