adjustable rear suspension arms
 
I know these have been discussed on here before but I just noticed they are 10 % off. Seems like a decent price for the pair and they appear to be a similar style pivot joint as the OEM. Anyone have any recent feedback on these ? I know mine are shot and I'm close to pulling the trigger on these but would like to hear some real world feedback.

Someone on this forum must have some personal feedback on these .........don't be shy :D .

Well, maybe the headline is misleading, because this will not adjust the rear suspension. ;) It will make the rear alignment adjustable.

And because these are uniball parts, the noise driving comfort will decrease. More rattle from the rear. Good for racing, bad for street use.

Heavier than stock. I'm running the front ones because the TRW are unobtainium. The rear TRW should be available cheaply and would be my first choice.

As for the noise, mine seam to make a small clunk when loading in either forward or reverse, then are quiet. My coffin arm central bushings need replacing so that may be the cause of the noise :( Quiet compared to the stock tired OEM ones they replaced...

Not particularly in love with the orange powder coat either and I ride a KTM.

@WillH

The part numbers of front and back trailing arms are the same. ;)

OK so it sounds like not the best application for street use. Markus I appreciate the part number. Thanks guys .

@rfuerst911sc

You're welcome. But please always recheck if the part numbers are valid for your car before you order something. ;)
