First let me say I'm a pretty big newb to offroading. But I now have a 78 Jeep CJ7, that will only see medium trails at most. I've read about the advantages of installing a long arm suspension. What I can't seem to find, are the disadvantages. I'm trying to weigh long arm, vs just keeping the stock stuff on my 1979 CJ7. And I don't want to leave anything out or miss any important detail, that makes me have regrets. So what are the disadvantages of having a long arm suspension on a CJ7?

The re long arm kits for the tj and cj make them wildly more flex able but they are not necissarily prime link desings. The rears are a bit long for optimal nuetral squat geometry and can cause some funky actions that could be better handled with shorter links and better angles. But packaging suffers to gain function in a truely ideal suspension.
