Interesting rear arms! They look very sturdy - did you make them ? What are the inside flanges for ?

the rear suspension started out as a mini tech kit

and then I mod them to make them wider

I put the flat plate onto the arms because I'm thinking about maybe putting
the car on air, and the plate will become the lower air bag mount
the metal they are made out of is 1.25 Dom tube, .120 wall

the arms with hubs weight is 5.8kg each
I never weighed the disc brake set up

I'm still unsure if I want to put this car on air, or air ride on my truck
