    Just installed the new highlifter rear arched A-arms on my pioneer last night. The install was quick and easy the only problem I had was highlifter did not include the two 10mm lock nuts that are needed for the bottom replacement a-arm bolt that attaches the armsw to the wheel hub. I made a quick trip to the local hardware store and picked some up for $.80 cents.

    Looks good. I need some arms for the front due to my Evos rubbing on big bumps. What is price of the HL compared to SuperATV?

    Do you have to change axles or anything else or are they a direct bolt on?

    Both the front and the rear arched a-arms are a direct bolt on upgrade. You will not have to change your stock axles to use these arms.

    I believe superatv has adjustable camber.

    High lifter doesn't. I wish I would have got the super ATV but they weren't out at the time

    Basically when you lift any kind of vehicle it changes the angle of things.

    When you add these a arms and a lift kit, the tires aren't straight up and down anymore (camber)

    With high lifter arms you are stuck with it. It just means the inside of the tire is going to wear slightly faster.

    It's not really a big deal, but I would rather have the ability to adjust camber AND toe rather than just toe.

    If you ever plan on running a lift, new suspension, or something like that, something to take into consideration.

    High lifter 2.5 inch and front a arms. 30 inch intimidators on 14 inch msa vibes

    I'll get some pics of camber. It's minor, but for the same price it's a bit of a bummer.

    I think the superatv uses a special ball joint. I'm not super sure.

    And again, it's minor. I don't regret my purchase in any way. I regret buying upper fabric doors, not the a arms. If you like the highlifter stuff and are brand loyal or like the looks better or whatever you won't regret it.

    It's just would you rather get a car with ten more horsepower that was identical in every way including price? I would.

    Do you regret the catvos? Was it worth the crazy amounts of money?

    Screeeeeeew that dude. Same reason I won't have synthetic winch rope.

    I'm a low maintenance kind of a guy. I grease my stuff every 2ish to neverish years. Give or take.

    That's how often I clean my winch cable as well.

    Also why I can't have nice things....

    I'm with you. I recommend the superatv as well. They aren't any different than high lifter other than adjustable camber. When I bought my arms high lifter was all that was out (for cheap arms)

    Woah... I had no idea they did that. Mine don't rub at all though. That's cool.
