Yes. It's all about liability issues. The longer the better but yes they will all work.

Head down to the wrecking yard and pick up a spare set of stock arms. Extend them at home about 12 to 15" and make a set of rear mounts. The whole setup would probably cost less than $100. Install them over a weekend in the same time it would take to install the expensive ones from Duff or Skyjacker.
