Are JBA uppers arms really needed with BB lift?

Was wondering if I really need the arms for a 2 inch lift. They look great and also look like they were made for a lift they way the ball joint is positioned. They cost $400+ though. Not saying that they are not worth it, just wanted folks opinion. If I need'em to do it right, I need'em. If the factory upper will last without it, then I save the money. Thanks

you do not need them. your stock arms should last a while. i would wait until they need replaced.

Save you rmoney. They're really meant for 3" + lift kits.
