Hi
I'm looking for the weight of an OEM steering arm.
Anyone with a spare could weigh one for me.
Thank you.

The weight is the least interesting property of the VRSAS arms

They allow quick and easy change of the steering ratio from -4 to +21% in roughly 4% increments which is far more versatile than a quick rack.

Quick and accurate bump steer correction is on the arm itself.

They are fitted with a ling life bearing (same unit as the toe link).

The allow more camber

They are much stiffer than OE and aftermarket arms

 

And they are 40% lighter than OE
