ATV - 6" WIDENING KITS
The INEXPENSIVE way to widen your front end from Diamond J Customs is here!
Diamond J Customs' a-arm and shock widening kits are a unique approach to increasing the width of an ATV. Instead of replacing the a-arms with custom built, expensive after-market a-arms, this kit simply relocates where the a-arms and shocks mount to the frame. The precision laser-cut brackets supplied in the kit bolt to the stock mounts on the frame, and provide two sets of new mount locations for the a-arms and shocks that are 3 inches outward on each side. This provides a 6 inch total increase in the width of the ATV while making use of all of the stock suspension components. Threaded extensions are also supplied to extend the steering tie rods to match the widening kit.
Some of the widening kits also include shock mount kits that are adjustable to allow the customer to vary the ride height of the ATV, utilize longer shocks, or both.
Kits come complete with all necessary hardware and tie rod extensions that thread onto your stock tie rods and secure in place with jam nuts.
Stock shocks and a-arms can be used with all of the widening kits. Shocks and a-arms are not included with any of the kits.
The kits require no cutting or welding and can be installed easily in an afternoon by a typical home mechanic. Brake lines are typically long enough for the conversion. Longer brake lines are available on other websites if the customer prefers to also make that modification.
The bumper mounts are not affected by the kits. Stock and aftermarket bumpers should work fine with all kits.
Steel brackets are made from 1/4" thick carbon steel and are designed to be used in all types of riding and racing, including motocross. Many customers are using these kits to race every weekend. The a-arm mounting brackets are designed to be as strong as the a-arms connecting to them. The eight separate brackets work together to share the load in all directions (such as rough terrain or hooking an occasional tree on the trails). These kits ARE designed (and used) for the harsh conditions of motocross racing.
All kits come powder coated gloss black. Color choice is not available, but other colors can be painted or powder coated by the customer over the gloss black finish.
