Do you yearn for more lift on your WJ Grand to run that next larger tire size, but know that you’re short little factory-length control arms are maxed out on angle, resulting in a jittery ride and/or Death Wobble? Thanks to a recent partnership with an industry leading Long-Arm kit manufacturer (Clayton’s Offroad), we are able to offer you a Long Arm kit for your ’99>’04 WJ Grand Cherokee. Does the thought of driving your WJ over rail road tracks send chills of fear up your spine? Have you lost fillings when driving through road construction? Does your WJ go into convulsions when you hit a seam or pothole in the pavement? If so, then it’s time for a Clayton Offroad long arm kit, my friend!!! Clayton long arm kits completely re-establish more correct geometry for your leading and trailing control arms, allowing a pillow-smooth ride over paved highways and offroad trails alike, as well as articulation galore. Imagine “floating” over the sections of washboard road that used to make your entire WJ shake and chatter. The Clayton Long Arm Kit re-establishes NEW control arm locations, fitting your WJ with longer control arms to reduce the control arm angle, so that the energy of the road imperfections are now transmitted directly into the springs and shock absorbers, where they belong…rather than being transmitted up the lower and upper stock control arms due to the poorly-placed control arm mounts on the “frame”. This becomes desirable on anything more than around 2.5-3.0-inches of lift, and necessary around 4.5-inches of lift. You’ll NOT BELIEVE the ride quality difference between Clayton Offroad long arms and ANY aftermarket short arms on a WJ Grand Cherokee lifted more than 3.5″, and these Clayton Offroad packages also include an upgraded crossmember for drivers who find themselves belly-up on rocks. The Clayton kit also includes a triangulation of the rear axle upper control arms so that there is no need to run a rear track bar, which was necessary on earlier Grand Cherokee models, and eliminates the part that makes the Jeep rock side-to-side when you hit speed-bumps. The Clayton Offroad Long Arm kit works even better if you add on a beefy upgraded Addco anti-sway bar (available below) to allow more precise cornering as well as a quicker response to your steering input through the steering wheel.
Kevin, just wanted to give you a huge thanks on helping me out with the long arm purchase… Its now sitting in my garage waiting to be installed. Send my thanks to Cassie as well. You and your crew are a dying bread that shows excellent customer service. I have had my fair share of dealings with other offroad shops and no other has met the quality you have shown. Perhaps one day I’ll see you on the trails! Thanks again! Mike Naglieri, Fountain Hills, AZ
