Shannon Campbell Racing Trailing Arms!

These have been a long time coming but they were well worth the wait!

Shannon Campbell and I have known each other for 8 or 9 years now and had spoken often about how we might be able to work together. These are the first thing we have developed because of that.

2 Years ago Garett (Ruffstuff CEO) spent a week with the Campbells in Gilbert thinking, talking, and drawing CAD up of directions we might go. After many prototypes and design decisions we are ready to release these Trailing Arms. These are the same trailing arms Bailey Campbell took 5th place at KOH on last year, they are not some untested junk we want you to test for us, these are the real thing and we are now making them for you!


Wayland, Bailey, Shannon, & Dan at Offroad Expo

When you look at them you first admire the welds. Shannon was very particular about letting just anyone weld these. We only allow 4 of our 8 welders to do the work and they are all excellent welders.

Next you look to the attention to detail in the reinforcment. Right down to the to the RuffStuff fixit weld washers the shock eye holes are strengthened with.

Then we can talk about the reinforcements you cannot see. The internal plate with multiple bends that give amazing torsional rigidity with very little added weight.

One of the most interesting & important items is the Aluminum bar pressed inside the leading section of tubing. It not only fills the space to prevent deformation but cures an ill many have had in the past of tearing out bungs on extreme impacts. The bung is extra long, then the end of the bar is threaded into it & plug welded so they become 1 piece that is not going to pull out.











Finally I should mention that the arm itself is 4130 Chromoloy and the aluminum is 6061. The tubing is 1.75" in diameter and they come with a 2 - 1" uniballs and 2 - 1.25" heim joints. They are 40-40.5" long & Overall they weigh in at 30lbs each which is way lighter that most. We only sell these fully welded so you can be sure they are the best arm possible.

These are the first in what we hope will become a long series of items from the Campbell Racing Garage, Shannon and Nick and pretty badass builders! Stand by to see what else we come up with

Why isn't the rod end at the axle?

u10072-

There are a number of reasons we went with the Uniball for the axle-end, and a rodend for the frame-side. The primary reasons being strength and protection, The uni-balls can take a bit more stress than 1-1/4" rodends can. Being down low, and these being marketed to the racing community, the beefier option for the axle-end was the right choice.

Additionally, it is nicer from a protection standpoint to have the adjustment point at the frame side, so that you dont wind up with exposed threads on the heim down in the rocks.

If you really prefer them the other way around we do have another option for you, called our URC or Ultimate Rock Crawler Trailing arms. Which are of a similar basic design as Shannon's, and you can check them out by click on the pic of them below.
