Imped, what would you need for the rear upper and lower arms shipped to 74055?

Love the Jeep, definitely an inspiration to start my build. What are the specs on those aluminum links? Are they solid or hollow? How are the end threaded for joints?

I'll bet you a few caps they're solid... And he uses MC Duroflex joints, one right and one left hand IIRC.

Maintain, wheel, upgrade, repeat.

I was hoping they are solid. What aluminum alloy and the diameter of the links? I assume the threads were machined into the ends. If so, did a local shop do it or someone on the forum make them?

All arms are 1.5" solid 7075 aluminum hex bar. MC will be soon building RH/LH threaded aluminum arms out of the same material for TJ's but they'd also like to get into the custom-length business. They're still trying to determine if the material will hold up in LCA applications at lengths greater than factory TJ arms. Since my arms are a few inches over JK length, I figured I'll give them a shot to see if I can bend them. They're a little smallish for lowers so we'll see if I can make them last. If they don't hold up then I'll go another route for the lowers and keep the uppers.
