Have any of you heard anything about LTR'S longtravel, good, bad? The reason I ask is that I live 5min from his shop & the guy is very cool, and if I had any troubles the shop is right there....Soooo let's here it.
Our long travel was designed as a 100% bolt on kit. It is built from 1 ¼ “ .188 wall boxed tubing. It is 5” wider per side and swept forward 2” and back 2” and has 14” of travel. The front arms utilize outer 7/8” spherical bearings. The upper arm uses a 17-4 stainless steel tapered pin to fit the spindle. The lower arm uses high misalignment spacers and a machined spacer to replace the lower ball joint. All inner pivots use Delrin bushings. The kit comes complete wit custom 300M axles and king coilovers.
Thanks for the info, your kit looks the same almost as the LTR kit. I like the boxed arm's a little better, they just look alot more beefier. I just want to make sure when I'm ready I make the right decision.
I have that kit and love it. Allot of people will tell
you not to go with Kings for one reason or another
but these guys did thier homework dialing in the
Kings to go with this kit. I drive my rhino hard and
it takes anything I put at it. I have heard alot of
negative feed back about thier customer service but
I went thru Rhinocrap one of thier dealers and recieve
excellent service from Dave and Nick. Not sure about
the bad comments about Brian from LTR, he always
called me back when I had questions and he seems
like a nice guy. Nick has video on the Rhinocrap web
site of Ltr kit going thru the woops near beach store
at 40 or so mph and I can tell you it does. I take mine
down OLDS as fast as I can get it to go thru the big
section of whoops and it handles them no problem.
Ther are a ton of other great kits out there as well.
I would get as much info on the kits you like and try
to buy close to where you live so If you do have an issue
You can get it resolved quickly.The first question I asked
Dave from Rhinocrap is what if I break something.His
answer was bring it back and I'll take care of it. At the
time I had to take his word for it but I now know he Is
a man of his word.
thanks for the compliments terry and we have done alot more testing with king and have made the kit even better than before its our own new valving we have had another company "try"and knock our kit off so we went back to the drawing board and made a few more improvements!!! get a hold of me and when you have a week of not using your rhino send me the shocks and I will put all of the new valving in them free of charge and if you want me to custom make you a new cage let me know and I can make any changes to our standard cage
