    Do I need to change control arms when I put these on?

    Depends on if you can get your alignment to be ok.

    What height?
    2.5" is iffy.... anything under that should not require new uca.

    I'm going to set them as low as they can go. If I raise up 1.5 I'll be happy

    Just don't get obsessed with numbers on alignment, a lot of guys do , they strive for the acceptable spec. # & completely overlook that the first alignment was probably the best but because the "numbers" weren't within the parameters they've been forced to believe ... Good rule of thumb is if it drives straight , doesn't pull L/R & tire wear is acceptable , I'd say it's in the ball park...,.I couldn't even say what mine are, I don't care as long as the end result is as above...know what I mean ?
