Re:Thoughts on HighLifter XP1K Trailing Arms...?
Let me try to ease your mind about this item. It is stronger than OEM. It's built from 1.5"x .25 wall steel DOM tubing. The heim joints are rated at 28,000 lbs. In all our R&D tests in the rocks, we tried hard to see what might fail to include the necked down bend. Nothing failed period. Also none of the ones we sold have had a strength problem. Our Max Clearance Trailing Arms run parallel to the frame giving 4.5 inches of added clearance over OEM. With the arched design we have eliminated the decent of the bar in FRONT of the rear tires. That completely stops any drag, hang ups or scraping in the rocks. The drive line/suspension angles stay the same as the factory. So, zero perfomance problems on the issues you are concerned about. Plus it is AMERICAN MADE right here at High Lifter.
