Control Arm Guru's needed

801 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  dieseljay74
I have a 2001.5 4x4 2500 that has a leveling kit... well a set of 2 inch lift springs... I just bought a set of 35-12.5R20 and the scrub at the back of the wheel opening... (drivers side is the worst)... I know when you lift one it really "needs" to be done right and reindexed (if that makes sense) to get the axle back where it should be....

Ok... now that I know I need a set of control arms.... how much longer than stock do I need.?.?.

I have seen .5 inch... 5/8 inch.... what do you guys think... I am thinking about getting the Top Gunz off flea-bay.... and of course they say that their arms are built to spec... so would they know.?.?. or do you guys know something....

Thanks :thumbsup:

I went 3/4" when I did my 5" lift which was sorta mismatched together. I had regular stock length Skyjacker lowers on and had rubbing on the fender. I called TopGun and they recommended the 3/4" for my application. Worked perfect...axle is exactly centered in wheel well...no rubbing even offroading or turning sharply into a inclined driveway. Give 'em a call....they are quite knowledgable...

I ended up getting a set of top gunz 1/2 inch longer than stock arms... Pain in the ars to change.. But WELL worth the effort :thumbsup:... Truck feels much tighter... And no scrubing at all... Just wanted to report my finds in hopes to help some one out :thumbsup:
