As luck would have it my arms were the last of the items to arrive...I got tired of waiting so I bought some more from my LHS. Fortunately for me he did not have the arms by themselves but had a kit for sale.

The part # for the kit is 6082-00 and comes with the following:
  1. Front and Rear ProTrac™ arms 6082-01 (4 pcs)
  2. ProTrac™ Suspension Kit Renegade 2.2”/3.0” Black Wheels 2727-03 (4 pcs)
  3. 50mm x 4mm Rear Camber Links 6062-06 (2 pcs)
  4. 60mm x 4mm Front Camber Links 6082-02 (2 pcs)
  5. 70mm x 4mm Steering Links 6062-07 (2 pcs)
  6. Turnbuckle Wrench 6062-49 (1 pc)


This was a blessing in disguise as it never occurred to me at all that the camber and steering links would need to be longer for the extra length of the arms. Stock would probably work but with the rod end having less bite thread so to speak.

From the above list...the bloke at the LHS sold me all the items except for Renegade rims which I did not need.
