Anybody seen these yet? (I know they're not officially out, but they've been testing them for a couple of years.) I like the idea of getting rid of the uca's and raising the lca's so they're inline with the axle tube. Mr. Green

Okay, been thinking about this and trying to remember high school physics. If the lower control arms are moved up so they're mounted closer to the centerline of the axle tube, I'm thinking similar forces will be applied however they won't be leveraged as much as the OEM mounts since they'll be closer to parallel with the ground. Make any sense?

I know the control arms in general are the weak point on a TJ. They are just way too fragile. This seems interesting.

I missed this thread....yeah it does make sense. The same forces would be applied, they are just being levereged more effectivley and efficiently. From an engineering standpoint, I like what I see so far...it would help solve a lot of problems associated with lifting both coil and leaf sprung Jeeps, but I'd have to see/read more about it and maybe see one in action before I'm sold....

Ive seen it on there site.

I would wait for someone else to be the guinea pig(wheres Mike?) before puting it on my rig. For offroad use, its probably going to work great. My concern with it would be the 95% of the time when my rig is on the street. I have many years of stock car racing under my belt. That is a simular set up for traction in some divisions of racing. Great for the track, bad for the ride quality of a street vehicle. Too much transferance of shock to the driver compartment.

rofl rofl rofl

As a matter of fact...where has that limey bastard been?!? Was he deported or something? I havn't seen him around in weeks...

BOT, I do agree...that's why I'd like to see and read more about it. I think it would work awesome for off road situations...the question is on road.

Mikes taking care of some personal issues and we wish him good luck with everything. I'm not 100% sold on those, but I do like the looks of the tomken ca, just want to see them in use!

Good info, Todd. I'm not sure how the ride could get any worse, last time I drove it, I think a door vibrated off. Shocked Wink Mr. Green

Hey Todd, do you know what else the stock cars were running in the rear? swaybars, trackbars, etc?

I never ran a rear swaybar.....most dont, on the track rear roll wasnt an issue and it made it harder to dial in the suspension.

Most every set up Ive seen use a track bar, unless leaf sprung. With 3, 4, or 5 link or truck armed(a 3" "I" beam swing arm) you still end up with the track bar to keep the axle square in the chassis.
