SPC Toe Arms

I bought a set of SPC toe arms a few days ago. they came in and have this bracket on them that i do not see on any other pictures of the arms. Every source i check has the same picture. the part number on the parts seem to be correct but the vendor does not know if the design has changed.

Has anyone else bought these? if so can i get some confirmation if they are correct or not.

thank you for any help. pics below.

Hmm, that's odd. I bought a set 3-4 months ago, but don't remember seeing that bridge metal. If it's bridging rod and bushing area, I'd think that's for added strength.

The bridge also has nut welded to it and they provided a bolt to go into it.

Mine don't have that bracket either, but they are at least a year old.

Contact SPC and see if there was an update.

That makes sense.

While we are on this topic, what are aftermarket toe arms meant for (what's the benefit )? Increased rigidity ?

Ohhhh for Toe adjustment. After lowering the vehicle and knowing what wheel/tire to go with, then you'd know if you want any toe + - adjustment .

Yeah, usually oem adjustment is enough even when lowered and running camber but some need more. Also OEM seems to be semi prone to slipping where you can get lockdown kits for aftermarket ones.

Also curious about this as I'm thinking about getting the SPC toe arms and using them with the SPL lockout kit.
