I love the belly skid which is probably why I will be going with it, downfall is the arms but hey for my use they will be great.my preference would have to be the T&T Customs Long Arm. I say this because I've heard nothing but good things and the arms have a bend in them to give you just about as much clearance a short arm kit. And plus you get one hell of a belly skid that they mount to.
IMO I love my TNT, but I think Claytons set up is very nice... also the RK LA is a radius set up, on the drivers side arm the upper arm is connected to the lower arm making a "Y" and the passenger side arm is just a lower arm no upper. The RK set up is nice for the price, but lacks in adjustment.
While flexed the pinion doesnt stay the direction it should be but rather rotates.
What they do have on the competition is they have a decent kit where no welding is required for those of us who dont have access to one.There's lots of problems. They bind like mad, and can pop axle tubes. The Anti-squat is totally wrong. And they cause a large caster change.
I could write a long post, but I won't. Basically, they do work, but a guy could do much better.
You have the LA's aswell going on?Can Of Worms.
Yes, there are inherent 'flaws' on 4-link radius arm setups, but unless you wont notice it unless youre running higher than 5-6" of lift. the whole 'ripping axle mounts apart' wont happen with a D30. D60 maybe, but I know guys running radius arms on 1-ton running gear and arent ripping their junk apart. have i seen radius arms 'unload'? yes. was it catastrophically bad? no. like i said, if youre not running a stupid amount of lift youll be fine. i have a few friends running the TNT kit and it is beef and awesome but i still prefer mah phactory phour lynk. i have a TNT belly skid in my shed waiting to be installed :thumbsup:
