Default Control Arms?

I need to replace the ball joints and I noticed the rough country lift just comes with control arms torsion keys shackles and brackets. Well I already put shackles on and I was wondering if I torsion bar crank the front end and put new aftermarket control arms will the new control arms give it any lift or no.

The control arms are made to help correct the ball joint angle after the lift. I have them on my truck.

So all it does is help ware to make ball joints and other parts last longer?

Basically. They are longer and designed to be used with the lift but don't offer and extra lift. You still run into the cv angle issues like you would with stock arms with a diff drop which comes with the entire 2.5" kit.

So is it even worth it I did do a T-bar crank and added 3inch shackles.
