I didn't buy the ARP ones, I would rather break those then rip the threads out of the knuckle. They are Marlins "stronger than stock" ones. It took all of 25 minutes to drill out 3 of the broken ones and have the new ones in and everything ready to go. Plus the ARP's are 12 bucks a piece!!!

You won't rip the threads out.....the issue is tightness...anything torqued to stock specs will loosen and shear...i had 4 arp's and a 1/2 grade 8 bolt per side all torqued to 110lb/ft....even with hydro and 38.5's they never loosened.

I know they are $$$$ but do yourself a favor and get them, then do the 5th bolt mod.....i have seen more than one knuckle ripped off on the trail....it sucks.....alot
