Suspension and clearance

I have a 97 cherokee that I'm doing an axle swap in right now. Thought I would fix up the suspension while I was at it. I have a six inch long arm lift and wanted to go 3 link. I finally figured out how to do that but ran into some problems. The long arms that are on it I wanted to keep as my lower control arms. They are 35" long and I cannot figure out how to put an upper on that is even close to that length. also...the long arms are high clearance so they have a kink in them. The top of the arm is only two inches from the frame. So my up travel stinks. How could I go about getting more up travel without changing the arms? If this had been answered please refer me to the link. Thanks

With 2 inches of clearance you won't be able to get any more up travel with those arms. sell the arms and replace them with arms that will work.
