Keep in mind. You break the lunsfords, they replace them free. You bend the associated ones, they don't, so in the long run, the lunsfords are better, an I have yet to break one on a buggy.
As for the cost comparisons, keep in mind what you are pricing and also take off what you are pricing out. so if you are saying this:
Thread shocks : $40
Don't forget you probably are going to sell the kit shocks that came with. So keep that in mind. Price isn't exactly that amount.
Also don't forgot to add in the cost of the composite chassis as that is one of the popular changes right off the bat, and the graphite ones are not in high demand because of it.
Finally, graphite may cost more so you may feel you are getting a better deal, but if it breaks easier and you have to replace it sooner than the other stuff, did you really save anything by getting parts that are inherently more fragile?
