Default 2 more inches in front?

I have installed two inch drop springs and a flip kit with new shocks. I want to lower the front another two inches. What is the best away: just upper and lower DJM control arms?

yes you need them, unless they put them in when you got an alignment last time.

Do alignment shops carry them? I actually haven't got a alignment yet. I will sunday when I install the arms.

I always take my vehicles to the alignment shop and have them supply the correct eccentric needed to be put in spec.
