Can you do a simple lay n play setup on a x-frame without reinforcing the stock lower trailing arms? Has anyone seen the arms fail on a street setup?

Like 4-6 batts,1-2 ton springs, no hopping, you get the picture...

I see a lot of people shave the lips off, then add a flat plate on the bottom, but how much strength is that really adding?

Also, does anyone know off the top of their head what the eye to eye length of the factory arms is?



thanks,Andrew

that purple impala i had for 4 years as a daily. i set it up 2 pumps 4 batterys two switches and bone stock factory frame. i never even cut the driveline tunnel.

8's front 10's in the rear never had an issue. with that said i think it depends more on the person than the setup.. some fools can fuck up ANYTHING.

center to center is 22.5. mufasa showed me how to read a tape measure. so that may not be correct.

I THOUGHT YOU KNEW EVERYTHING?????????????? AT LEAST YOU SEEM TO ACT LIKE IT. ANYWAY THO, HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN LOWRIDING? DO YOU THINK ALL THE SIXFOES LIFTED HAD REINFORCED T/A'S? NOBODY DID DAT CHIT UNTIL THE 90'S. THAT LEAVES 2.5 DECADES OF CARS THAT WERENT REINFORCED. SOME JOTO'S SHOULD STICK TO TROKAS WITH LEAF SPRINGS.

Funny really because its the rolled lips at the bottom and the curves at the top edge that give the stock arms their strength.

I've never seen anyone (at least not anyone that knows what they are doing) shave the lips off of their T/A before, because it would weaken them. I've seen people wrap the side of them which makes it look like the lip is gone.
