It's mostly a steel frame just the sub frame is aluminum plus the steel hold up better than the aluminum frames. Talk to TQSATV KB for a good deal a arms. I got mine from TQSATV and he gave me a good deal on them. Do you have any pics of the a arms where you say there bending?

Its not a mostly steel frame...from the footpegs fwd on the bottom they r steel...the rest is aluminum. To the op...don't b cheap, spend more for better, stronger a arms..mx is not the only reason to get better a arms. Stock a arms are 3/4"...most aftermarket a arms are 1" so they are way stronger than the stock steel bottoms and aluminium tops.

man be careful that sounds like a catastrophic failure waiting to happen. I had a tie rod bend and it threw me off and the bike veered off the trail and rolled off a embankment bending all sorts of stuff. If it looks like it is starting to fail. DONT RIDE IT>

Are you sure they're bending? The balljoints in the lower arms sit at an upward angle.
