    Talking Just got my new DKT LCA's!

    Man, these lca's are beefy, .25" tubing, and easy to rebuild JonnyJoints!
    Even with the .25" wall tubing they're still a little lighter than my old G.W. lca's.
    The normal tubing thickness is .12", but I wanted a little more beef!








    Here's a comparison with my worn out G.W. LCAs

    The Spherical aircraft bearings are worn-out, and to get them out you have to grind the welds down, then press the bearings races out , and finally spend around $90 for new bearings, for each control arm!

    FYI, GlobalWest has those control arms on sale right now for $300, instead of $344!
    So guess what?.........I chose the DKT lca's for a lot less, that I can rebuild in 5 minutes for about $18 per control arm.

    GlobalWest make really good products, but money wise rebuilding them just didn't make any since.

    Thumbs up

    Installed them yesterday, All I can say is I forgot they were there. No noise, and the rear articulation actually seems a little better than the J&M LCAs they just replaced.

    Overall, the best LCAs I've had to date!
