So you are just running a lower arm and thats it? Doesn't it try and rotate when you are offroading since there is no upper arm?

...sometimes you see guys that take the stock dana 30, run a lower arm. But they take the upper link and tie it into the lower arm. Giving the impression of just lower arms. Atleast thats what i think hes asking
