its all the same part, aside from the shock and spring.. spring was missing. my butthole puckered at the $160 price tag on a new torque arm so we are hoping fixing it will last.

its all good i really wanted to get a complete shock set up so i knew it was correct, i should have looked into it more after i had the eyelet on the rear shock wear through. i think who ever put the walker evans shocks in just miss-measured or didnt care and put the wrong size in.

im stoked so far that i might have saved it!
got it all back together but found one more small crack when greasing it so i'm headed back to the fab shop tonight to get it welded and will have it back in after that. i think it still has a slight bend to it but should work just fine.

Yeah you're gonna want to at least get yourself a can of red rustoleum. Those fresh weld will rust as soon as they get wet.
