Just a thought, if you were to drive the truck into a ditch or something, those arms won’t give at all which means the frame and pivots will become pretzels. I’d rather fold up suspension components than the frame.

Thats a good point i intend to do some frame reinforcement to stiffen up the frame mounts.but it may not be enough if i hit something super hard

i have been working on the lower arm this weekend. I finally got my plasma cutter working well ish. I put it in and it bolted in perfectly to the stock frame mounts as intended. I just have to finish boxing the end where the knuckle will bolt to and this arm will be done.

I'd hate to say they are overkill but when stacked that's 1/2 inch and that seems a little extreme to my non professional fabricator brain.
