    It looks like A arms on next on the list of things to figure out. There is an awful lot of choices out there but I think I'm going SATV. Now there are still 3 choices. Just forward lowers, high clearance or boxed. Just lowers seems weird. The ultra high clearance (or whatever they are called) seems a little extreme for me and worries me about stressing stock axles. Leaning toward the boxed A arms because I like tough and these look solid. Anybody wants to chime in on these would be appreciated. That and is it worth it for me to trailer the Snake 200 miles down and 200 miles back to do the work myself. I'm a pretty smart guy, that being said, it may be smarter for me to find a shop than to kill my precious free time working on it myself. Not to mention the wife's reaction. She already rolls her eyes every time I take off solo. "I really think you have this unnatural obsession with being out there." Well duh!!! So, cutting back on her anxiety is worth it's weight in gold. Thoughts on A arm decisions would be appreciated.

    Just the name I'm giving the ride. Central California. When of those things that you don't hear until you're right up on it and it scares the crap out of you.

    Now I'm checking out the S3 power sports A arms. Not sure if I should do front and back either.

    I am intrigued by the boxed arms, they are deff more pricey, but they give you the extra clearance and look super heavy duty. That said, I just have the arched and offset ones they sell and have been happy for the month they have been on. I think if you replace them, just the regular ones don't make sense, it'd be the same result you have now.

    No info on the s3's I didn't even know they had them.

    Well I'm already looking at $1000's what a few hundred more. Gonna to clear out a credit card (or two) in the next few weeks. Seems like there's no point in getting the tires/wheels until they fit. Read some unhappy reviews on SATV arms but they are few years old so maybe they've improved on the weak points. And yes, the boxed arms look pretty serious so why the hell not.

    Just the standard forward A arms with no lift will give you all the tire clearance you need.

    I've got the highlifter arched front a arms and I'm happy with them. I also put heavy duty springs on all 4 corners to keep tough country front bumper from sagging front end.

    Well now I'm more confused. Talked to SATV and they make the boxed front with 1.5" lift, but not forward. This means I'll get clearance for my 28's but no forward clearance. They it would be no problem and I won't need steering stops because the radius won't be increased like the forward A arms. And then the rear, want to have a matched set but, they come in a standard version and a 2" lift version. The lift is in production till the end of the month, no issue for me. So the question is two fold.

    With my 28's is the forward arm as important as say running 30's (which I'm unlikely to do) AND lift the rear or not? Will it make it the stance more even with or without? Ok, I lied, 3 fold question. I'd also like to thank everyone once again for chiming in and offering experience and advice in my time of need. Now I just need a GoFundMe site for the remaining mods.
