Default another DJM suspension question!

I feel like my fronts too high with the 2/3 kit. So I'm planning on ordering http://m.summitracing.com/parts/djm-ca3098l-4 and this http://m.summitracing.com/parts/djm-ca3098u

I already need upper and lower ball joints anyway so I have to buy upper control arms.

Question is, are there benefits to having the DJM uppers or are they just like stock with urethane bushings? Also, will I still need caster/camber washers?

There's also a link on my rear shackle that I was planning to step up to to make it a 4" drop all the way around. Any advice is appreciated.

Many who go 2/3 end up eventually going 4/5. The difference between the 2" front and 4" front is the new control arms. Therefore, the control arms will give you 2 additional inches of drop.

Yeah I figured as much, I'm just wondering if the upper control arm is necessary to replace. I know you need the DJM lower control arms to drop it 2 more inches

Yes you need both upper and lower arms to get a correct alignment.
