Did you switch to a different arm? What arms do you use now? I've seen several guy's here run Part Mike arms but don't know how well they hold up. I need arms in a bad way to go any further with my SAS and need input. I just want to buy a good set of arms that will last. Does anyone know how thick Parts Mike arms are? I know Shaker arms are 3/4" and that seems kinda skimpy for all the stress that big tires and off road use will put on them.

I've ran my rockstomper arms all summer with 38.5's and hydroassist. Tore the hell outta my truck, but the arms are just as straight as the day I bought them.
How thick are Scott's arms? I know it's hard to tell online but Scott's and Shakers arm's look like the same thing.

Got mine from AllPro....my tiny 36" TSLs don't strain them the least....my PS box almost tore off but that's another story. I got the Heim joint version and glad I did.

I can tell you that shaker arms do not! Three runs with 38's and mine is like a taco.

I just got off the phone with Scott @ Rockstomper and his arm's are 1 3/4" wide(where the most strength is needed) and 3/4" thick. I'm just about sold on the Rockstomper arms but for compaireson, how wide are Shakers arm's? Shakers arms are also 3/4" thick but if they are only 1",1 1/4" or 1 1/2" wide that is probly why they bent for Bigburlynakedguy.

I didn't know All Pro made arms for dana knuckles. I looked on their site but didn't see them. Do you have a picture of them? What was the cost?

couldn't find a good pic, here is an old one. Notice I had to run bolts and there is a half inch spacer under the arms. If you didn't need the spacer you wouldn't have to run bolts. Lift is the biggest issue with arms I think.

From what I can see they look like pretty good arms. I would like to find their site and look into them but I can't stop thinking about the Rockstomper arms.

Thanks for all the info guy's. After calling around and talking with several companies about their arms I went with Rockstomper.

After talking with Scott for nearly 2 hours:eek: about the arms and several other thing's I bought his arms. I couldn't be happier to deal with such a nice guy. Next time I need something that Scott can help with I will call him first. He gave me several new ideas and I got a little convidence now that I am going in the right direction with my truck. Thank a bunch Scott.
