Need to replace right side upper A-Arms on my 2009 Summit. It has the 38-40" stance with 17" shocks.

 

I have a set of shocks and arms from a 2011 Renegade Adrenaline.

 

The shocks are 17", the lower arms are 20.5", like my Summit. But the upper arms are longer, like 1" more.. Not sure what's going on... I believe the Gade has a slightly wider stance at 42". But the lowers and shocks would also be longer right?

 

So can I use the upper without messing the suspension geometry?

 

Any help/advices would be greatly appreciated. First pics is the Summit, 2nd the Gade upper A-arm.,

Thanks

looking at the parts fiche, the lower a-arms have different part #s...

 

are the Rene a-arms from a sled of yours, or did you get them elsewhere? I'm wondering if they got mixed up with a Summit set. The Adrenaline has the wider 42" stance, so it would need wider a-arms... upper and lower.

Summits are narrower than renegades.  The tie rods are also different lengths between the two.  It will goof up your geometry if you use the renegade a-arm with the summit lower.

Both uppers and lowers comes from a friend's sled. I replaced his with Alternative Impact. We did the install together.

 

So I guess the previous owner of his sled may have mixed up the arms. Its a no go for the longer uppers on my Summit then.

 

Thanks for the comments.
