Heavy Duty Idler Arm

Hi All
Well got bored today so I put the hd idler arm I got from Lowrange on my tracker,Sorry no pic's.It was ten times harder to do than thought it would be.It looks like it would be easy until you start trying to put wrenchs on it,had to go buy a tierod seperator that goes in an air hammer cause I couldn't get a swing on my hammer,54.00.Then the holes in the hd bracket were 1mm to small for the stock bolts,called sean he said I was the first one that ever happened to.So I used my dremel tool to open them up,get it all back together and go for a test drive and it steers so easy it's almost scary,so I got back under it and tightened the big nut on the bottom of the arm up about a 1/4 turn,I haven't driven it yet ,had to sit and rest for awhile,LOL.
I sure hope it is worth all the work and cost,95.00 for the part 54.00 for the tool to get the old one off and then there's the shipping ,It never ends does it!
Sorry for the rant guy's,but now I can wheel my DD with a little more confidence.

Hi Guy's
Well after driving it and adjusting one time it drives real good,I can now steer the tracker with my pinky finger.With the short wheelbase of the tracker this can lead to wondering around in your lane if you don't pay close atention.But it is very smooth,and the arm itself is beef thick I think you break something else before the arm would break or bend,I will try to get some pic's of the arm tomorrow.It is worth 95.00 for th confidence ti gives me to go to places that I don't normaly go[did any of that make any sense]?Oh and my tires are 30x11.50x15 sx's.

Heavy duty really sounds good but the question is will it stand for easy maneuverability - hope it will coz I badly need one.

Good call on the arm, I bent mine and it ended up breaking the tie rod and the front c.v shaft. Should have upgraded the idler arm first.
