Default Lower control arm help please

Ok I'm going to order a set of LCAs but I was just wanting to make sure if it mattered I got the adjustable ones or if I could be fine the j&m ones since their 40 bucks cheaper?? Idk if I plan to lower the car or not there's a possibility I might will that affect it? I'll also be purchasing 4.10s with it.. Now when I order the gears does everything come that I will need? I mean everything or is there anything I will have to get additionally with it?

If you order from American muscle, you might want to add the installation and bearing kit along with the gears. From what I read and asked the american muscle guys you probably want to get the ford racing gears and not the Motives. That is what the shop that installed mine recommended for their installation.

Ok I am ordering it through AM I knew to get the does racing gears just from research.. Now on the drop down tabs for when I'm purchasing the gears do I need the gear installation kit and 8.8 bearing? Or just the installation kit and of course I knew I'd need fluid

All I ordered was the Gears and Gear install Kit, and had a local shop here in Raleigh do the install. If you doing it yourself you could give AM a call. They have long hours and are very helpful. Plus if your doing it yourself you might want to order some gear oil.
