Rovertym Arms/Links Front and Rear

Got these and the fronts don't fit my vehicle, hence, surplus to requirements. They are for a 3" lift. Trailing links have two of the 3 spacers that they come with. You'll need the 3rd one for a bigger than 3" lift (I think). All of the bushings are good save for one on one of the radius arms. I tried to drill out the bolt but ran out of drill bits. It isn't far off if someone has the patience to finish the job. Or just press out the bushing and install a new one. Save yourself the core shipping and the wait. A bit dirty and could use spme paint if you are into that sort of thing but as anyone who has seen these knows, they are about 2" thick solid steel so not much to worry about.

$450 picked up in DC or delivered to NOVA Happy Hour. Interesting trades considered.

Interested in splitting the set? I might be able to use the rears. How do the rears differ from the ones on your truck?

Rears are the same as what I have, AFAIK. Adding or removing spacers corrects the pinion angle.

I would split the set if someone will buy the fronts. 250 fronts 225 rears. 450 all four. Cabell what are you using up front? Are you lifted?

I'm looking for a set of RTE radius arms but hoping to do better than $75 less than brand new.

No RA is brand new... unless you buy Equipe, Terrafirma, etc.

If you buy them from RTE you will need to pay for a core charge (cannot remember the amount) and ship yours to them. The $325 turns into $375 or higher depending were you are.

FYI these fit D1, D90/110, RRC.

The fronts are 30lbs each and the rears are 15lbs each. They can be shrinkwrapped and shipped pretty economically. Some examples, I think it was about 65.00 to ship all 4 to GA. $75-80 to ship the fronts only to the West Coast. I have a buyer for the rears if someone wants the fronts only.

I suspect you will end up with too much caster which may make the steering heavy. You may also have problems with your front driveshaft.
