The original LST platform (LST I, Aftershock, mega baja) had wheel adjustments, but the LST2/XXL's do not. Not the end of the world - stock camber/caster is fine. Both of my trucks drive the same - 1 LST2 has RPM front arms, the other is all stock suspension. Only real difference is my .28 has more snort than my .26.

I've seen most people that put RPM arms on their LST2/XXL's replace the RPM turnbuckles with Lunsford titanium parts because of strength. I havent broken the RPM turnbuckles yet but I will swap in the titanium parts when they do break.

Also - RPM has a lifetime warranty on their parts.. Most of the time, they're very good about their warranty. If you break a part, you send it in and they send you new pieces. You won't get that with stock parts.

I wouldn't go replacing a bunch of parts until you start breaking them. No sense in replacing the suspension arms, hinge pins, and such with titanium/rpm pieces unless the originals break. The stuff ain't cheap. just my opinion.

I just ordered the RPM arms today. It seems that the lst2 and xxl have stornger a-arms than my LST1. I finally got sick of replacing the stock arms. Again I have the LST 1 which came with weaker arms than the lst2 and xxl you should be fine unless you really want camber adj.

You adjust the front toe with the steering turnbuckles. Camber can be adjusted when you get the RPM A arms, but I find camber should be set to 0 or 1 degree negative at the most front and rear.
