I've got one on a roller I got recently, havent run it yet. The arms bolt/clamp to the main bar and mine have a bit of play in them independant of each other. I may make new arms to weld to the bar if its a problem. The existing ones are aluminum on mine.

If buying new I would def get a TeamZ/baseline one.

thats what I was concerned with, I think the arms welded to the tube is a better setup.

The comp engineering piece is junk like stated above. They are bad about bending or breaking. Go with a good quality ARB from Team Z or Baseline.

My Baseline arb is an awesome piece, very high quality material and fits great.
Also came with excellent instructions.

I had the Comp Engineering bar.The aluminum arms wallowed out. I cut it out and put in an Auto weld setup. The only thing is the 3/4 inch bar didn't look like it would do the job. I cut off the splined ends and socketed them in a 1 1/4 heavy wall boiler tube. Also, made some bronze bushings to replace the rubber ones. I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have one on my Mustang with little use but so far so good. When I read how everybody hated theres I PM'd Novi357(because he said he had one)He has had one on his street car for over 4 years and runs 8's. So I was satisfied with that.

Flop5.0 how are you preloading yours? Thanks Mike
