All my measurements are in for the 80, 100 and 200 rear control arms. I will have these available in the next week for purchase.

4R and FJC available as well.

Nice, but how will these be adjustable if there's a bushing in one end?
They are adjustable at the end with the johnny joint. Generally speaking a large amount of adjustability isn't necessary for most trucks, on average maybe an inch from either uppers or lowers. That should be easily handled by the johnny joint.
@reevesci is that accurate?

A,

As far as the amount of adjustment needed depends on the amount of lift and amount of correction the pinion needs to get it back to proper angles. IMO, minimal to no correction is needed for lifts under 2".

2.5"-6" lifts need the axle rotated to get a good pinion angle back. Some use a DC shaft to help correct this and some use a DC shaft and adjustable arms. To each their own.

Yes, this design and the Johnny Joint will allow for a 2"+ total adjustment, from 1" shorter than stock to 1" longer than stock. Just because both ends don't move doesn't mean its not adjustable. If you want an arm that is completely adjustable, on the vehicle, I can make those as well. Otherwise, pull the Johnny Joint bolt.. turn the joint to your needs... lock the nut and reinstall the bolt.

My 2 upper arm designs are on vehicle adjustable. Mainly because of the location and ease of access.

What I was getting at is that you still have to pull the bolt from the JJ to adjust it.

Some people are lazy and just want to put an adjustable wrench on the link :flipoff2:

While this is true, it seems that the majority of people won't need to make frequent adjustments, just an initial adjustment and then leave it alone.

A,

Correct!

Pretty much a set it and forget it for the most part. But, there are the guys that will fiddle with it every time they go out to get the absolute most out of it. For that group, like stated above, call me for details and pricing.

Does a buyer need to provide more clearance for upper control pockets, body end?

Phil,

The 80 series upper channels will need to be clearanced for these. The 100, 200, FJC (and all the 4Rs Ive looked at so far are good to go.) I guess Toyota figured the upper channels were a binding issue and removed them after the 80 series.

They fit and will move freely for light use, but get in the rocks/articulation and they are going to need to be trimmed/removed.

Nice looking gear.

I'm in the market for rear upper adjustable arms-80 series. Nice coincidence!

Will the Jonny joints last in that application? I like the grease zerk and implied potential to keep it lubed up.

Also, will the part that needs to be clearanced be obvious?

Andy,

Currie has JJs on competition rigs that are up to 3 years old. Both ends are greasable and can be rebuilt as well. The upper frame channel will need to be opened up.

I'll PM you payment etc..
