    2020 rear a-arms on 2018?

    WON'T WORK!!!!!

    Welp, I just picked up the 2020 rear arms from my dealer. Doing a few things with my kids now but hope to take some measurements tonight. Even if they do fit, I can't install because I dont have the longer axle shafts yet. Scheduled to come in late November.

    From what I can tell, the arms, axle shafts, and shocks have different part numbers. The 2020 specs give you 1 inch extra wheels base which I'm hoping brings the rear back 1 inch. Also get more rear wheel travel. I'm hoping the part number for the shock is due to a spring change. I have JBS springs already.

    My dealer likes me and does there best to price match online prices. So they are about $42 for 2 of them and $52 for the other 2. Each, so about $200 for the set.

    Very nice. Can't wait to here how this mod goes and if the results are what you are hoping for. Definitely something that I would consider doing if it all ends up being bolt on and go.

    From what I can tell, the arms go back about 1 inch and are about 1 inch longer.

    Do you think your brake lines have enough extra slack to work with the longer arms?

    I have portals which came with longer rear brake lines. Check the parts break downs for part number changes. From what I remember, the factory ones almost reached with portals. Looks like mine won't be a problem.
