Long travel control arms

Has anyone made any long travel control arms for a solid axle?

Are you talking a radius arm for a front axle? Like a James Duff?
-or-
Trailing arms for a rear axle?

Some guys have welded Dom tubing to the end of their existing radius arms and boxed the "I-beam" portion of them. Personally I've never messed much with a coil sprung solid axle... Mostly leaf sprung.

here are the extensions that we put on mine. They were stock R/A's that were plated and then had a DOM extension, 18 inches if I remember correctly.

These came from a company called Bent and Twisted, it's been so long, not even sure if they're still in business.

BigBlue 94 and PearlJam like this.

Do you guys have to run a taller stance, like an ~8" coil, to run that style arm? Looks neat.
