I've been reading but really haven't found any answers to my questions so far. I ride mostly loose gravel and some hard pack dirt trails, Im wondering if it would be worth investing into some +2 A-Arms from houser long travel. any input would be a ton of help.

most trails have a 50in limit...

if you wanting a full LT front end setup your lookin at around 2k new (shocks, aarms, brake lines, ect). for the riding you described id go with some ST travel +2 a-arms and some SE OEM shocks (rebuilt to your spec would be even better). that would be below half the cost of a LT setup. all depends on what your budget is...

I run LSR but there are many other companies that make quality a-arms. Houser is a great company. check out KBMATV.com, he has premade kits...

I agree with Adam based on the riding conditions you posted a standard travel setup should meet your expectations. I'd go with a set of +2 a-arms for the extra corning stability. Although, if the loose gravel has rocks the size of your front rims you may want to forget what I said about going standard travel, and go with a stabilizer and a good long travel kit. Give us a call at 270-774-1982 if I knew more about your riding area I'd point you in the right direction.

Thanks Adam for the name drop!

Thanks I don't think I need long travel as I don't go over anything the rear axcel would hang on or really air it out just need a little stability in corners on the regular +2 are the shock mounts in the same position/place so geometry ain't affected?

You can go with +2 arms easy and fit on 50" trails. If for some reason you are to wide get a set of 4+1 offset front rims. I run a +2 a arm for flat track racing and run the 4+1 rims and iam AMA dirt track 50" legal
