Looks like a nice piece. Now, offer up a chrome moly version with half the wall thickness that's just as strong, but 40% lighter and these will fly off the shelves. Only my opinion, of course...I like your products...I have a pair of your lower control arms myself \:D/

Thank you for the support!

We did a little comparing with chromoly and it could save a little on weight but was though with weight vs. price, we are actually pretty thin now, 0.095" wall up front and 0.065" in the back. We just didn't feel most customers would justify the price so we went this route to make most happy. So it's definitely doable and could save a pound or two.

Thanks for looking,
Ryan
