Hi all

After my traxda 2.5 inch lift installed desided to put btf upper arms (hard to believe that my original control arms will last long in real offroad-maybe only roads or gravel)

Talked with Brandon via emails and he told me that arms design looks according to btf site photos- square profile made..

It is a bit ugly look (in my opinion but ill handle it)...

Anyways...
Is anybody knows why btf arms designed changed?

Hi apoctank

Can you please share your experience with btf arms ?
 






There's not much to say really, they were expensive, easy to install, and have given me zero problems so far. Looks are obviously subjective but the craftsmanship and finish are both very nice
 






Hi all

Anyone knows whats going on about BTF guys?

Ordered BTF arms on 16.06

On 06.08 contacted Brandon in order to get some shipping estimation or update.He told me that arms will be shipped soon...

Something about 8 weeks for production (before leadtime)? Sounds strange...

And until today no any updates and no any answer from BTF..how long it really takes?

My old oem control arms going worst from day to day

Should i contact paypal for dispute?
 






Mine took a long time to arrive, and that was US to US. I would say send them an email to check in but you're probably fine
 






talked with BTF finally.
package now in origin USPS office or awaiting pickup by postal service so I should be ok..

driver side stock arm failed already (replaced by cheap brand as temporary remedy ).joint almost separated from arm housing (shimmy detected on high speeds)
 






Hi all

Finally got my BTF arms

Very well made..looks like OEM vehicle equipment:

Installed today.fits perfectly.professional welding quality .no special issues instead of washers purpose question (solved)

Painted it black matte and added some kind of dust cover to the bottom joint portion,just to restore factory look.
