Some of my 1st upgrades were Boom racing. At the time there were not many manufacturers putting out upgrades at the time. I find myself replacing Boom racing parts with better manufactures because Boom Racing quality isnt up to par. There is play on the outter hinge area. Also, the little rubber piece in the arm is warn. Shimming that does little to no good. Im going to just order some 3racing black aluminum arms, maybe those have tighter tolerances. Or I may just retro fit some overdose rear arms. BoomRacing parts look good. But if you really drift your machine, they fall short.

I have 3racing arms front and rear. ther is alot of play in the mounting pins. also with 3racing alu hubs. will need spacers/shims to make them tight. i'm also looking for better control arms. or go back to stock plastic arms. they have less play.

I also am using a lot of boom racing upgrades on my d4 rwd
Will the usukani lower arms work without buying the bulkhead? id like to keep the boom racing mono shock and use usukani lower arms.

i have tried MST, Usukani, 3Racing front arms in a lot of chassis and all i can say is that having shims are vital in removing slop. Even stock arms need shims to remove slop, it becomes necessary the older your chassis gets.
