The bend in the lower a-arms is for the longer shocks (kfx450r), the tubing is 1"od .065 wall dom mild steel. The upper a-arms have slight bends also, if you do the +1 forward you will need to bend the back tube a bit to clear the shock. For the axle it is a durablue extended axle, not sure where your gonna get one though. I got 2 of them from east coast atv but I called a few weeds ago and they said they ran out and durablue does not make them any more.thanks for info and pics! Why do you put the bend in the lowers? Is it for ground clearance? Did you use chromoly? what did you do for the rear...new axle or wheel spacers? thank you for your time
The rod ends on the uppers allows for camber adjustment and with the small spacers I use I can also adjust the caster angle by moving the arm forward or back. Here is a link for the rod ends QS Components Inc. Quality Racing Rod End & Components and here is a link for the weld in bung QS Components Inc.

I noticed you are using a screw in connection on the upper arms to the frame, who makes them and what is the advantage. how much did those shocks set you back? how much longer are they than stock? Could you use any other shocks? Thanks again for answering my Q's.
