The stock 415 is not fragile. It's very durable. But when you add on the LW suspension.. then it becomes a TC3 as far as arms go. Bearings on the other hand are kinda small. I haven't had any trouble with mine (I didn't blow out the grease either)... but I'm using Squat 950 in the rears and the Pro4 knuckle up front.

TryHard... have you seen my pics on the Pro4 knuckle that I posted up in the Evo IV forum? If there are any special pics you need of it... let me know.

Would it just be easier to leave the stock arms on then go through all the bearing/hub trouble?
