I picked up some used +2 sport a arms from lonestar.

I’ve already knocked out the upper Delron bushings.

It looks like the lower is held in like oem with two c clips.
They aren’t loose at all but rather tight.

Have you guys had any luck pulling and adding grease to the lower bearing? Or usually just replace?

Thanks DD I did read that.

Looks like I’m on the hook for the bushings from Lonestar.

I can reuse my lower oem bearings if they are in good shape

UPDATE

Pulled the a arms partially apart.

The lower bushings are in great shape.

The uppers were worn out.

It was only 49$ for 8 new upper bushings.

I’m the 3rd owner so these a arms have seen some miles and haven’t been rebuilt (partially) until now.

Hopefully this weekend I can get the a arms and Axcalibar pro axle installed.

I will have a set of Honda Trx rears hubs for sale now too.

Not too long ago I did a steering stem rebuild and replaced both the upper and lower. I rode for a few months on it and put the +2 +1 lonestar a arms on and new bushings and bearings....and now the top mount on my stem has a decent amount of play in it already. Its plastic and has a small bushing wall inside. I'm not home or I'd post it... what kind of mount should I use?

Sells a billet upper mount.

You can change the bushings and it has zerk fittings. Mine has slight play as well. But I won’t change it yet

Just got the a arms on today. Install went great. The LSR arms fit right on.

Went with 3/2 front rims for more width. (Have a stabilizer already)

I need to get on it and have someone measure the front to see how wide it is.

The rear might need one spacer remove from the LSR axle and the Honda Trx hubs reinstalled for a full 50” width
