Are these the right alloy upper arms?
 
Hello everyone, are these the right alloy upper arms for the marder please?:

They look a little short, will they extend to the correct length? Do all alloy arms retract this short?


Thanks ever so much :)

yeah the alloy bit looks right just use your turn buckles and balljoints

The arms on my MB are the same,but in place of that vertical pin I have a screw and lock nut for adjustment,that's how they were when I bought my MB:D

Are the standard turnbuckles and ball joints the same strength?

Thanks :)

those have the onroad turnbuckles but the alloy part will fit...exactly the same ones i had on mine, all the off roads have the longer turnbuckles that are common to MT, baja, marder...
as you're from blighty you have the best used fg parts source on the planet....ebay.co.uk, you can get good used bits for less than half price usually

Yep, not doing too badly :)
Think I've got everything for a good truck now, cant wait to get it running again ;)
What's the consensus on running on wet grass right after rain, is it a bad idea to get them wet? (even if the radio gear is waterproofed?)
What would it do to the engine and moving parts? (other than was away their lube)
Might parts rust?


Thanks everyone, you're all ever so helpful, wish I could return the favour :)
