    Best control arms for summit?

    Well it finally happened, snapped a front control are at the sand out yesterday. Witch BTW the summit did the best out of all of them. Possibly because of the mudslingers. Anywho what do you guys and gals recommend for control arms? Stock again? RPM doesn't have a arm listed, so I assume you use the Revo arms? Thanks for the advice!

    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    The summit because of the diff loc
    Requires some trimming of the braces for clearance,but can and has been done . I stayed stock because they don't break all that easy for me

    Here is a picture of the modification needed to use Revo RPM arms on a Summit:
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    A bunch of people have done it haven't heard of anyone breaking one.... I didn't think it would hold up either....I don't know what kind of voodoo plastic they use. But the bumper mounts are unbreakable from what I can tell. Full speed head on into a hidden rock in the grass and nothing the stock mounts would break if I looked at them the wrong way
