Bosscat lower arm question

Post by Retro rc »

Anyone fitted bosscat lower front arms to a xls-procat if so what mods did you do? Planning my next project and what to do this as part of it

Won't that make it very wide? Only thinking that because my Bosscat was originally a Bosscat Touring and to narrow the track it had procat lower front wishbones.

Yep if you use the standard procat mounting position it would be too wide that’s why I was asking if anyone had done a mod to the uprights to use bosscat arms. I sure I’ve seen one done on here somewhere

Ah, right. Not seen that done before. What's the benefit? Just the longer arm?

I’m looking to run the bosscat top arms as they’re an easy swap out but if I do the pivot point of the top arm becomes longer that the lower arm which isn’t ideal

Bosscat uprights? Scarce here in the UK but they might be able to be adapted?

The hinge pin hole is existing so that made things a bit easier.

Yep, basically convert front shock towers back to XL spec by removing web under crashback lug.
