Which ones do you like better?

Racer tech
Zbroz
Highlifter
LTI
other

I am liking the LTI because they do away with the heims on bottom and use a bearing that you can replace, I still have no idea how they will hold up in the real word. Just trying to get all my ducks in a row. Any thoughts?

Are you sure you cannot change the heim joints? I would imagine that the heim joints would be better in the long run. 32749

The threaded heims are your weakest point and will break---maybe you can get stronger threaded heims but we know that the Zbroz heims break....But I really dont know..thats why i'm asking you guys because i dont want to go down they same road I did with the 08 buying parts and "upgrades" that turned out to be nothing but a waste of money...... 113872

I have the Racer Tech radius rods on mine. They are tough but I have already bent the lower two. I bought the Highlifter lower rods like Archie did. I think they will hold up better than the Zbros and give more clearance than the Racer Tech. (I will still run the Racer Tech upper radius rods)

Most every one of the aftermarkets one have already been proven not to be unbend able, id go with the cheapest since chances are its something your going to be replacing a lot.

Don't forget, Buck has already broken two, left and right, of the Zbros radius rods. I was there when he broke the first one and he wasn't riding very hard at all when it broke.

If regular guys are trashing them on regular trails, Jerrzr better order a couple dozen to get him thru a riding season, best stack them like cord wood behind his house 729242

Only if Polaris could have designed the XP with regular a-arms it would have been the ticket. The amount of suspension it or the Wild Cat offers doesn't amount to a lot in where and how we ride. My 866808 never gets spilled unless I'm upside down! 971386

It must have been the same fool that designed the wild cat...going to stay far away from that thang! 971386

I bent one too on Saturday, but not until I had to limp out with a flat. Thanks again to Roger and Archie for hooking me up with a spare!

Actually, I did run out of beer for the first time. It was probably a good thing, but it won't happen again.
