Clayton front long arms

Has anyone pieced together a Clayton front long arm kit using their upgrade kit? My front lower control arm bushings are getting worn, and started making some noise. I don't really want to replace with short arms, so I was thinking about getting a Clayton long arm upgrade kit and keeping my current poly springs, and short arms in the rear.

I have 2.5in poly springs, they seem to net more like 3-3.5in lift, and I don't need more lift, but like the idea of long arms.

Really like the idea of a heavy duty cross member and link mount all in one like the Clayton setup that is why I have been looking at this as an option.

I have not in my JKU, but I did this is an old TJ of mine when Clayton first hit the market years ago. I had Carolina Rock Shop do the install at the time. I did the front Long Arm kit and left my short arms in the rear. The jeep handled amazing on the street and the long arm up front made it predictable with great flex.

Good to know. It makes sense that it would work, just looking to see if anyone has done this.
