how much lift or u taking about? if u have the tools and equipment to do this with, it will only take time and a lot of brain power to come up with a design.

The angles will probably be the hard part. As long as it isn't higher than about 2" you shouldn't have to extend anything. If you do have the proper tools, it would probably be good to go ahead and extend everything. You might have a problem with stress if you start to cutting and welding.

the a-arms will be built with square tubing instead of round tube. buzsaw is the builder of this project so if you have any questions just ask him and he will help you out with some info.

Do you still have the stock rear joint in that boot or did you put a more heavy duty joint. In the pictures it looks like its being stressed alot.
