Stock the arms are almost horizontal. Might be a dumb question, but what would this have to do with setting up long arms? <IMG SRC="smilies/confused.gif" border="0">
You'll never match the stock angle with lift springs in there, even with the long arms...

Yes there are Jeep dealers up here, but they seem to have a problem with you crawling under a new jeep with measuring equipment. Not to mention that I wasnt in the mood to crawl through 8 inches of fresh snow to get under one (I know, cry me a river). I was just hoping that someone living in a little drier climate could help out.

You may be right that I may not be able to match the original angles, but as with any experiment, it is always a good idea to establish a baseline to compare your changes against.

Accckkkkk. Don't talk about snow yet!!! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">
I have about a month left before I can think about that..

It might be more worth your while to find out the lengths of the Tera, RE, and Skyjacker long arms and go from there...

Good luck <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

The length is not the problem(and for those who want to know Rubicons arms are 36" and Skyjackers are about 28"). I am trying to figure out what the instant center, anti squat,pinion angle change, roll steer and anti dive is for a stock TJ.

As for snow, we have over a foot now and climbing. <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">
