well Ive never broken a stock one sooooo................

and you basically did nothing for the actual weak point of the arm (the stud), so whats the point of making the body huge? Its not like people are snapping them clean in half.

I mean its cool and gee-whiz fancy and shiny, dont get me wrong. But I just think there are cheaper/simpler ways to go about this.

EDIT: and wtf do you need huge pitman/idler arms for anyways? You have a 2wd truck/

Leave the guy alone! I'm interested as hardly no one produces anything to solve the problem completely. Tell us more about this arm and what about the other side?
