Aside from it being a potentially fun and rewarding project, is there any reason why we don't see more aluminum suspension components?

IMO .... Aluminum arms create worse damage. Arms break and chassis's are saved. Aluminum arms break chassi's .... not to mention a little bend can be missed and oh boy screw with a tweak bar.

IMOx2 lol ...... carbon fiber braces for arms if your looking for just some fun machine time
