    Round 5! We're excited to get started on making these again! The advertised pricing here is contingent upon getting 20 people prepaid and on the list, with a maximum number of 30.

    The arms are fabricated from 4130 chromoly tubing. They weigh in 30% lighter than the OE arm. (5.0 lbs, VS. 3.5 lbs) So total weight savings = 3.0 lbs. The shock mount and inboard end use Teflon-lined sphericals. We currently have 81 sets previously produced and being used in the field from previous group buys.

    Aside from the weight savings, other benefits include:

    * A stronger, rebuildable, and greasable balljoint
    * ~1/2" drop on the outboard pivot, which helps raise the roll center
    * ~1/2" more shock travel (lowered mount)
    * All sphericals, so no more bushing deflection

    These arms are e-coated and powdercoated cascade black. They will come assembled and greased with Joe Gibbs Driven grease. They will also include boots over the ball joints as a standard option. If you require boots and seals over the other sphericals, it will be an additional $35 total.

    Price is $520 shipped anywhere in the US.


    Full payment up front is required to get on the list. PayPal is preferred. Gift payment or buyer to cover 3.3% PP fee. I also accept personal checks, money orders, and cashiers checks.
    I will begin work on these are soon as I get a final count.

    If interested, PM me here or send me an e-mail to: paul@volkmetalcraft.com

    EXTRA::: If you'd like to add in a set of tubular toe arms or trailing arms to your order, I will include them in your LCA shipment at a discounted price! This applies to these only:
    Toe arms (AWD or FWD): $160
    Trailing arms (single adjustable): $145
    Trailing arms (double adjustable): $175

    Anybody else??

    I'd like to get this closed out in about a week so that I can order balljoints and start fabbing very soon. If you still want in, please contact me asap!

    Hey guys, just a quick heads up on the group buy. The fist 10 sets are welded up and at the coater already. Another 12 sets will be welded up this coming weekend and will go tot he coater next week. I'll be finishing/assembling/shipping as soon as I get them back from the coater.

    All arm sets are back from the coater. I will be finishing/assembling/shipping them all this week. And I will forward tracking as they ship.

    Thanks for your patience, all.

    Are these coming out again and I thought that these would be bad for the shocks and give a harsh ride when changing the front bushing to poly on the stock arms and these custum ones pretty much have no bushing period ?Confused and just want to know.
