    Evo high clearance long arms

    Can you use the evo long arms high clearance with an AEV 3.5" lift?

    I'm not exactly sure what you're asking here but, the EVO long arm kit would require you to cut off all the factory control arm mounts and install new ones more toward the center of the frame rails. An AEV kit uses drop down brackets that bolt up to your factory control arm mounts so that you can still use your factory arms. They're entirely different kits and aside from the coils and shocks, not much else can be used from what you have.

    Sorry i wasnt specific. Im wondering if you can install the EVO High Clearance long arm instead of using factory arms and brackets. Isnt the High Clearance only the above frame brackets and the long arms? I have the AEV kit and i want to have long arms and im getting 37's and need the adjustable arms to move the rear axle back.

    I think what your after are just longer adjustable control arms and that is different then what you are looking at on the EVO site.

    Ah, okay. What I can tell you is this. Up front, the only real difference between the EVO Double D kit and high clearance kit is that the rear brackets will be situated above the base of the frame rails. However, you can only run these if you are running coil overs. The good news is that you can get the Double D now and, if you ever decide to upgrade to coil overs in the future, they will give you high clearnace rear mounts for free.

    High clearance long arms can only be used with EvoLever rear suspension.

    So i should have just saved more for the Double D instead of the AEV? I do plan on DTD when the money comes around. Would you suggest replacing AEV with the Double D kit from EVO? or could i get Tera flex long arms and brackets? but with teraflex could i still get the true 14" of travel? once i upgrade to DTD

    Is there anyway Off Road Evolution could just get me the long arms and bracket from the Double D bolt on kit? And if they could would the work with the coils and stuff from my AEV kit?

    TF bushings will fail with the amount of flex of a coilover.
