building them to sell them, trying to see if anyone is interested in something like this, lowere are 2"x1/4" wall dom with weld in bungs ends are 2"x1/4" wall with 1-1/4-12 threads and poly bushings, 175/pair, will fit stock to 4" lift on xj or tj, will have upper pics tomorrow, also can get a price on flex joints or johnny joints as well. uppers will be 135/pair. lowers are adjustable on the rig, one end is left hand thread opposite end is right hand, can also do fixed on one end and adjustable on other.

(these ones are sold already) can build more if there is interest

here are the uppers, they are adjustable but I didn't have the jam nuts on in these pics as I had the ends threaded all the way in for paint.

They look good, but, why didn't you just build long arms?

these aren't for me, they were for a jeep of one of our club members, he wadded up all the factory bracketry and the upper and lower control arms and wanted something stronger. He is happy with the short arms so I guess it works for him

How much are you looking to get for a set of just lowers? and what eye to eye range are they adjustable though?
