Round 6! We're excited to get started on making these again! The advertised pricing here is contingent upon getting a minimum of 18 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 102 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 powdercoated chassis 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. (Free boot/seal option for anyone paying with a money order)

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: [email protected]

EXTRA::: If you'd like to add in a set of 2G 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 arm sets only:
Toe arms (AWD or FWD): $169
Trailing arms (single adjustable): $165
Trailing arms (double adjustable): $185

Question, I just bought a Talon so I don't have the funds to get in on this group buy, but is this something that is available for purchase outside of the group buy, down the line at a higher price? I really want a set.

I'm not certain. We do these via group buy only because the custom balljoints need to be ordered in bulk. And we don't want to tie up $4k in inventory of balljoints just for these. More efficient to do group buys. At the very least, we will continue to do a group buy annually. Maybe down the road, we can consider stocking balljoints and trying to keep this arm set in stock.

Sounds good. If anyone backs out, let me know, I will find the money somehow since I need new LCAs on this car one way or the other.

Do you have a time frame to get everything sent out?
The balljoints just showed up. We're still waiting for the bearing cups to finish machining and then we'll start building them. Hoping to start shipping the first sets out at the end of April.

Should be assembling and shipping the first half in about 2 weeks. And the second half 1-2 weeks after that. I'll get some pics posted up within a day or two. :)

Hey guys, just a follow up on the 2g DSM front LCA group buy; balljoints, bearing cups, and standoffs are machined. Tubes are cut and welded. We're starting to get these welded up now. Hoping to have the first half at the coater in a week or so. And the second half a week later. So we'll be shipping these out very soon.

I put money aside a few years ago for these and for some reason I keep missing the deadline...

LOL...every f***ing year. ..

Is the group buy around the same time every year, so I can finally end the steak?
