These high clearance lower rods are built from 7075-T6 aluminum and feature over an inch of ground clearance. This is aircraft grade aluminum and pretty much the strongest aluminum option for our sport. The ends house FK uniballs, the same series joints that the trophy trucks are running, there is nothing better. Gain over an inch of ground clearance and incredible strength.
Our business and products are based around using American products and material, we don't source cheaper parts or materials from overseas.
Here are some basic strength differences between 6061 and 7075 aluminum and how much stronger our lower radius rods are being made from 7075.
