The longer replacement control arms keep the truck's suspension properly aligned. There are lower-priced kits that don't include control arms, but if the truck is lifted more than a few inches without replacing them, the suspension's geometry will be thrown off. The cam bolts on the lower control arms should be marked before disassembly. When installing the new control arms and hardware, make sure the marks are realigned.
