    Well on the second ride hit small bolder in a creek and bent the radius rod. So started to order the Super ATV replacements and then canceled them after finding the L&W Fab site. They make aluminum billet machined set high clearance lowers and uppers super stout. I dont think these can get bent .
    L&W Fab also makes billet tie rods for the stock steering rack. I will post some pictures soon

    I have a set of L&W lower a-arms, radius rods, tie rods and shear stoppers (all powder coated) coming on the ups truck today.

    I haven't hit anything yet but looking to be proactive after seeing what it cost someone that bent a radius rod and broke an axle at an event earlier this year. They spent the money for parts and labor to salvage the weekend that otherwise would have been a bust and still wound up without high quality, high clearance parts.

    Allthingzutv.com has the set on sale. Honda Talon R ATU "Ultimate Suspension Package"

    That's exactly why I upgraded my suspension components from the get-go. Throughout the course of riding SxS's I've had a few rides spoiled or nearly spoiled by broken/bent parts and it ends up costing me more in the long run by the time I drive to/from a place, buy the riding passes, food, etc...

    I'm extremely pleased with my L&W stuff and have the lower a-arms, upper and lower radius rods, tie rods, and winch mount all from them.

    I forgot to mention, the bonus with the L&W components is the lifetime warranty.
