What are you trying to accomplish? Have you run out on top, so you want to bring the bottom in to allow it to be aligned? They do make adjustable tubular A arms for both upper and lowers, but if you need more adjustment on top they also make offset shafts for the upper arm, so you can get things lined up easier. They're only about $80 a pair, where adjustable arms are around $500.

fatmans sells 1 inch shorter arms. you also need to cut the spring because it gets longer as it moves inboard. i take it your are too wide ?

Different offset wheels might do the same thing

These are the types of things that happen when the measuring tape is not used in pre planning
