I'm looking into getting some wider A-Arms. My question is when they say +2 does this mean each arm is 2" longer making the front end 4" wider? Or is each arm 1" longer making the front 2" wider?

when looking i would get a name brand also. if parts are needing replacement the name brand a-arms will be much easyier to find parts for.

I run IShock and have had no issues. They are +4 set up and really absorb the hits well. They come in complete kits with shocks or just suspension only. I race offroad desert so we need something that has to work and these do! Good luck...

+2 means, 2" on each side. You should also think about looking for a rear axle. And when it says +4 on the axle it means 2" wider on the rear.

Your ride heigth will be adjust by your shocks. Take a look at the "How To" section where I posted "How to adjust your suspension". This will help you set up your quad to handle much better, even if you don't have after market a-arms or shocks.
