    Default A-arm k-member question

    I have a QA1 tubular k-member with their a-arms and my tires rub the front of the fender when turning. Would 1" shorter a-arms fix this? I'm running stick front brakes right now but I'll be upgrading to areospace over the winter. I was thinking of swapping the qa1 kit out for a UPR chrome moly kit to save some weight but don't think it will save much more weight to justify the $. Any thoughts, comments or help is appreciated

    I'm pretty sure the kit you currently have pushes the tires forward. If you are going to but a new kit why not buy team z?

    I'm just wondering if I can put team z or upr a-arms on it to correct the issue. Like stated earlier I don't think there is much wight savings to justify the price to do a full kit swap

    I had the same problem and went back to stock arms for now. I'll get the team z arms when I'm ready to swap them.
