Depends on if they are new or not. I'd just make my own though to a longer length, **** short arms.

You'd be better off buying 2 new joints for my RC arms and then reusing them later when you stretch. Cheaper that way and you ain't wasting any money.

They don't list the tpi on their website, so I contacted Metalcloak a few months back to confirm, and they are the same shank size.
