    I don't know, the extenders are cheaper and solve the issue so the arms would be something you want because they are aluminium not just because the solve a problem.
    I am hoping next weekend Akela and I can get out with our Rock Concept arms and give them a good drive, they sure seem beefy.

    Lets here how you guys make out with those items. I understand there are newer rear lower arms to help the wear issues from factory, but i guess they still rub a little. I have the newer front thicker ones, but have not had to use them as i have not broke one yet.

    I have DS extenders, they eliminate the rubs on the upper A arm but there's still minor rubbing on the lower A arm. (Its the lower shock mount) I guess will see if the Rock Concept arms will completely eliminate the rubbing.

    I too have the DarkSoul extenders and after 8 tanks of hard running, I have not noticed any additional wear on my arms. I haven't heard any other feedback from extenders by other manufacturers though.

    The other MFG is Vertigo and they work great (not that I am biased or anything) But they have some features.
    Designed to hold the ring on the rear of the rim in place.
    Keeps much of the debris away from the bearing
    The end hole is plugged to stop the axle from filling with dirt.
    8mm instead of 10mm which works great without extra offset which may lead to greater rear hub/bearing wear.
