Long Arm Build

I built these long arms and thought you guys might like to see em. Some of the goals with the truck were best on and off road ride possible. Great articulation. Very little roll steer. Adjustability of instant center and anti dive. Move the axle as far forward as possible and clear biggest tire possible! Keep in mind these are not done and still in pretty raw form.

Yeah Thurens long arms are way cool. I wanted something that didn't hang so low. This truck isn't a rock crawler but does see some knarly trails. I think Thurens upper arms are the same material as mine 1.5 3/8" wall DOM. not sure on that though. My lower arms are 2" 1/4" wall DOM. They will easily support the weight of the truck without bending. I got a little more creative in bending the upper arms for more tire clearance. My upper arms are actually under the frame at full stuff and the outside of my arms are flush with the outside of the frame. 37" Toyos on stock wheels will fit without rubbing the arms.

Very nice. Those are some really cool homebrew!
