Same base design as our other HD Portal Axle Trusses with Riser but all weight savings went out the window. Extra material means extra cost but also extra weight down low.
This piece ties the shock mounts and upper link mount spot together with a metal truss. This will make the stock axles as tough as they're going to get all but eliminating axle flex. It also raises your rear upper links for more vertical link separation.
You'll need some longer screws and nuts to install. The links will mount on the outside of the truss, widening them a little. This should also help with side hilling.
Shapeways states a +/- 5% tolerance so some minor sanding may be necessary. We've done a lot of metal parts and shapeways usually nails the dimensions. The 20 day lead time is usually about 2x what it takes. In all of our orders we've only had one take longer than 10 days from order to ship.
