    Just want to pull which rear arms you are going to run in the future. And the reason why.

    I voted for Ram-Tech.I like the design better than the other alloy arms.Looks like some thought went into these.And I also like the cost of these as opposed to other alloy arms

    Canada is like a loft apartment over a really great party.LOL

    i vote stock
    once you get the wonderful vp extenders then all the rubbing is gone

    also the stock will flex to absorb some impact on large jumps, alloy will cause more force to be transfered into the car and that is NOT good
    ive already heard reports of bent hige pin holders when useing them

    Good point fergus,but I guess some guys just don't get it,just because you put alloy arms on doesn't mean you can drive your baja off of buildings!:p

    I voted Rock Concepts because I want to mount a sway bar, there is no wheel rub and there are no bushings to wear out.

    I voted rock concepts, if I was going to go the alloy way. Right now I have stock plastic arms with B&T braces and shock relocater. No real issues but if I every replace them then Rock Concepts are how I would go.

    I voted Elcon, I just like to be different!! But really I've run both Rock Concepts, and Ram-Tech's and really like the way both of them make the baja a little more responsive! But having no bushings and the adjustable shock locations, the Rock Concepts are in my opinion a little bit better! As soon as I get a chance to get a set of Elcon's, then I'll try them out too! With thier reputation, the a arms ought to be real nice!

    i dunno i've seen 5 bajas with RockConcept arms jump a distance of 85ft about 25ft high. destroyed rear bulkheads, split alum hinge braces crumpled chassis but at least the arms come out as straight as the day they come off the cnc. ever see a shock bend out towards the tires?
