+1 ..

There's nothing wrong with fixed-length control arms designed for a specific kit....

You really only need adjustable control arms if you plan on going higher at a later date.

No... but when they reach 36 psi the EVIC sounds off and instructs to inflate to 43 psi.

I think the label on my door indicates 43 psi.
