hey guys. what are some decent a-arms to replace the factory? i know about houser and the like, but i'm good with the factory width, and don't want to shell out that kind of cash, but my ball joints are shot. having done a little research, i know the uppers are not replacable, so i'm stuck with buying a set of replacement arms to solve my ball joint issue. some direction here would be most appreciated!

I woudl go that route before I bought new ricky stator uppers and replacement ball joints for the lowers.

Just dont get a pair of cheap ebay brand arms. (ASR or Full Flight). Ebay should be their brand name.

There are PLENTY of used, stock arms available on eBay, for both 660s and 700s, from people that have replaced stock with extended arms, or parting out bikes... a little investigation should get you a full set in good shape for $50.

Ouch! Quad I have a great set of stock A arms with less than 50 hours on them in a box in my shop and they're only worth 50? I've been lazy about trying to sell them but I figured they went for more than 50 for all 4. They even have the YFZ 450 shock mod.
