Rovertym Rear Links, Offset Radius Arms

It's a long shot, but does anyone have a pair of Rovertym rear links or offset radius arms lying around? Anything similiar? I figure I'd try the Rover Underground Parts Railroad (RUPR) first.

Cheers

Cheap?!?! The Equipe ones are $100 cheaper. I personally think the RT ones are the best. The bend is down by the axle and more out of the way of the rocks. The Equipe ones have the bend up near the frame. I don't think I've heard anything bad about the RTs.....

Duh, you're right. I misread that. I didn't see Qt on Lucky8's site.

the rovertym radius arms not only correct caster but due to the dog-leg design also reduce binding @ the frame bushing, allowing for more articulation (assuming your shocks are long enough). The QT radius arms do not appear to be "cranked" and thus do not appear to affect flex.

Just buy the bits from RT, they are cheap enough! As for looks, I don't care for shiny things dangling from under my rig, prefer the look of the gray and black parts...

I like shiny galvanized things under my truck.

BTW, I had RTE rear links on my disco and they were great. They also weighed like 40lbs each, but there was no way you could break them. They also come with shims to get castor right.

Dave,

the QT are cranked and also availabe in 3 or 6 degree Castor corrected.
The rear links are cranked as well on the frame mount .
If you remember the D90 at MAR on the L8 Ramp, I'll say it has a lot of flex.

Scott,

that was below the belt line. ( even by my standards *LOL* )

I don't but I have to tell you, when I did not know any better, I called OTHER VENDORS ( to be politically correct ) , got a bunch of BS on the phone, couldn't get straight answers and / or exact delivery times.

Then I met Justin, and from that day, no one else will get my hard earned dollars.

hmmm, I didn't see where the qt front radius arms are cranked, only their rear trailing arms. I am talking about front suspension. Your photo only shows the rear flex.

Ok, I guess from looking at Qt's site you can maybe just make out where the upper end takes a slight jog. If that is the case maybe the RT links just look "more" cranked because they make the upper bend alot further from the frame mount, in order to keep the arm up off of obstacles. Though I suppose for most of us that shouldn't be a huge factor.

Gustavo is the Lucky8 poster boy.

I am with Gustavo. Justin earned my business because the other vendors suck at customer service or are non-responsive to calls and emails. Justin has received nearly $6k of my money in the past year in Equipe and ARB parts.

On that subject, Justin pulled a bunch of Disco axle parts for me for FREE just so I could upgrade my axles from 10 to 24 spline when I install my ARBs. Now that's customer service.

Back on topic. The RoverTracks rear links are just bent 1 1/2" DOM, I can do that.

Having Rovertym radius arms and rear links installed on your old rig as we speak. Noticed my mechanic had a used set of RT rear links in his shop- I'll ask him if he'd like to sell them and let you know.

I have the QT radius arms on my truck and they really are not cranked at all. there is a slight flat spot at the frame end, but nothing like Rovertym radius arms. They have a weld running down the center as two pieces were formed to make them. I run some rough stuff and they have held up. They sell them wide and narrow so make sure you get the right one or it will hit your frame.

I would say both are build from the same quality, because one of the guys I drive with, Jarek has the Rovertym and I have the QTs with no breakage. So its really price and flat spot as your preference.

oh yeah... that is fake galvanizing.. its gold paint. really weird looking.

If its like the QT diff guard it's anodized. Not quite galvanizing, but not paint either.
