I need help deciding which +2 a-arms to buy?

Pro comp are $450
Burgard are $450
Laeger are N/A
Houser are $590

These are standard travel arm prices only (NOT LONGTRAVEL)

Best Bang for the buck

There you go right there! I don't think any of them are a bad choice, so go with the cheapest ... my vote goes to Burgard B)

Thanks trx450rkid, the only thing I don't like about burgards are you have to ream out the spindles for the ball joints.

Wow, you learn something new every day. I also didn't realize that the Pro comp are the same price, even though they aren't as big a name as Burgard, I would go with them if you don't have to ream out the spindles for the ball joints on those too B)

Actually I think Pro Comp's are just a set of Laeger's with a different sticker.

and also you don't have to buy brake lines for these a arms... the factory lines fit right on the upper a arms, and to me that is worth 100 bucks.. since the r already has great brakes

i live in nj near atco and not to far from englishtown motocross tracks and i see alot of ppl running JRD arms. they say there pretty good but on the pricey side. 800 for the mx ones and 600 for the tt ones. check out there website. but you cant beat the price of laegers either.

I thought they were for standard!! You should have both prices so noone will get confused or just say that price is for standard..because the long travel are about $100 to $200 more than that!!!! Just my 2 cents!! :D

If you buy your standard travel A-arms, just do yourself a couple favors. 1. dont try to get faster, because as soon as you do you will find the limits of your std setup quickly. 2. never ride a long travel quad, because you will want to catch yours on fire, collect the insurance and start over
If you are going to spend that much money for a std travel, you might as well spend the extra couple hundred and up grade your Frame, and body, and race results will thank you!
