it looks like a good idea. to take stress off the frame and mounts while three wheeling they twist.a little better for longer cars.im wondering how strong they are.

Do you have a pic of the arms you are talking about? You don't need arms that 'twist' per se, but joints design for misalignment, rather than stiff bushings.

Aftermarket trailing arms with pivot bushings are abundant, and vary in design and price range quite a bit. There are some nice units out there for very cheap,but at least buying from a lowrider shop, you dont have to search for the right mount sizes and lengths.

yea ive seen those ^ but these are different.they are like that but the mount pivots with the car on the half square side..i cant find a picture but its in the new lowrider.they and eliminate the stress it puts on the ears.they also have poly bushings.i have some like above on my truck and they work good too but if you start flexing it a little they bind where they mount.

Not be a hater (ok, I actually dont care,lol) but thats not a very great idea. An arm that rotates, but doesnt misalign... How is that going to help the bushing mounts? (or at least I hope it doesnt pivot in the middle of the arm, thats an even worse idea.) The angles of the mounts need compensation, not solely the rotating plains of each bushing bolt...

Not to be a hater but I think they look like ass and I don't see what difference is between them and a reg adjustable ARM both will twist in the middle lol guess it is an ok idea just don't think it was executed very well

Pic of them on you ride?
my truck is bodydropped so i can show a picture but you cant see too much with the bed on it.i have my bed floor raised so theres no hole in the middle to take a good picture either.there just adjustable link bars with heims.

They look like they used a powerball on the end.







yep these are theones i was talking about.i think the whole point is to be able to pivot the car up on three easier but it seems like if you do three it only one side is going to pivot at a time.

Mmmm i been trying to stay out of this one.... Buuuut i jus cant... Lol. Lets not forget on a triangulated suspension setup you need "bind" or u defeated the porpose of the triangulation. Now granted some things can be done to eliminate some of the stress... BUUUUUUUT welding a cce powerball on a prohopper adjustable aint it..lol. Stop being lazy and set your suspension up correctly and accordingly rather then make more work for less then aceptional solution.
also... What about rear axle hop? Pinion drop from having a loose joint at the axle? SCARRRRYYY. no thanks kids... Our adjustables certainly wont be changing to keep up with the jones's on this one.lol but super pivot with misalignment shims are availible for those who wanna pay the diff.;-)
