Personally I would just go with a set of Lonestar arms. They are not much more and everyone knows of the quality behind them.

I have heard Janssen Racing makes some good arms also and they come with a lifetime warranty. (http://www.janssenmotorsports.com/)
For shocks, I would also check into a set of TCS shocks. Bob (BansheeBC) races with them and he says they are just as good or better than Elkas, but cheaper. I have a set and I love them. Would recommend them to anyone.

For the eyeball engineering, I think RaptorCam carries them. I would PM him and see what you could find out. :tup:

I have a set of Denton +3 Longtravels on Elka Quad Rate and love 'em. If you are worried about the width, go ahead and go with the +3 arms and then get the front rims in a 4-1 offset, you'll get alot less bumb-steer that way too. If you call the guys at Denton, they will work with you. I got my front end (arms, Elkas, and SS brake lines) for under $1700.

If u can get elka long travles cheap then go for it but if you gonna pay anywhere around normal cost your better off going the extra mile and getting custom axis....If your not riding axis then you might as well be riding stock is what like to say ive ridden different setups before w/ elka's and tcs's both adjusted for right around my weight and i liked the axis shocks more....as for LT a arms you have a few choices but if your saying you want to go all out then you might as well get a front end setup from some of the top names out there like loren duncans (duncan racing) Lobo ll front end that comes w/ shocks lines and a arms, LSR's LTDC4 setup is pretty nice i hear a, and lastly My favorite set up that i run is dave gibsons (east coast atv) long travle Gibson set up...I swear by his work and i do almost all of work there dave started ECATV when he was 13 years old or something like it so he has some knowlege in the buisness. Heres my raptor w/ his LT front end on it. It preforms absolutly amazing







sorry for the shitty shots but thats all i had...need a new digi camera badly
hope that helps some

Hey Man. Ya, Janssen does not list thier Long Travel arms under the Raptor Section but they have them for the YFZ in the that section and I heard somewhere they make them for the Raptor... Anyways, they are called thier Outlaw series arms, I am sure you could call Janssen and get more information on them.

As far as someone on here carrying them, Cameron (RaptorCam) tried to sign up with them a while back and they never returned his email, but he may be signed up with them now. I would shoot him a PM he can answer that for ya.

Good luck with the setup and let us know what you end up with. :tup:
