Default Questions about high steer arms

http://www.greatlakes4x4.com/attachm...1&d=1259631066
These are the arms i'm thinking of getting. Theyre 1'' and theyre $149.99. My question is about where the caps bolt onto. Do i need to get a stud kit for these? Do the cap just bolt to the top? Ive seen capless arms, but from what i've seen theyre a little out of my price range. The jeep is never going to see the road and i'm using full hydro if that makes a difference. Thanx jason

caps go on top. some kits use studs and some dont. most will need longer bolts then the stock caps require

The caps go between the arm and the knuckle... They get sandwiched. You'd need one big ass spacer to run them on top of those.

I prefer a springless design.
