Went from short arms to long arms. The ride is night and day better. The corrected geometry makes the truck point and shoot on and off road.
After talking with the folks at Thuren, I pulled the trigger on a set of long arms. They arrived faster then i expected. After getting them installed I drove the truck home which was about 110 miles and I would say I definitely feel a difference between the drive to drop off vs pickup on the so cal streets and freeways.
Truck feels smoother going over small sharp bumps rolling bumps, potholes etc. and more stable going through streets and on the freeway. I also noticed the truck doesn't dive nearly as much under braking. Just need to upgrade the shocks to complete the package.

Don’s Alien Arms are very well designed and the craftsmanship is absolutely world class. The install is more complex than installing short arms but it is not too bad as long as you have a competent welder complete the welding. Huge improvement in ride and overall feel of the truck! I installed these on a 3” lift and the small sharp edge bumps that use make the whole truck shudder are now absorbed and go almost unnoticed. Roll steer is greatly reduced as well. Highly recommend!
