These are the bent arms for 3rd gen trucks, 2003 to 2009. These allow 1.5" extra tire clearance for those who are running factory wheels, or wheels with high backspacing (more than 4.5"), or those with wide tires. If you are having problems with your tires rubbing the control arms you have now, these are a great fix for that problem. We have not found a wheel or tire combination that does rub with these short arms, so they should be a "cure all" regardless of your setup. We use 2" OD 1/4" wall tubing for the lower arm, which has a high clearance bend in it, and then we use 1.5" OD 1/4" wall tubing for the upper arm and these are welded offset with no bends.
These arms are made to push the axle 1/2" forward of the stock location for more tire clearance and better suspension and steering geometry. The actual measurements vary based on lift height so please make sure you select an accurate suspension height when ordering. They are powdercoated gloss black.
If you have more than 5" of suspension lift, you will really benefit from our long arm kits. Even though we make the short arms longer to compensate for the additional lift height, long arms are the real answer to improving ride quality for lift heights above 5".
When listed in stock, that is for the stock to 3" arms only. All other lengths are built to order and will ship in 5 to 10 business days.
