Ill say it again...if you want the swaybar, you need the lower a arms from a 2015 ZR 4000 RR. I bought all new hardware and bushings, but you can reuse the lower a arm bushings and hardware. The upper a arms you will need the new smaller hole bushings and hardware. Don't forget tie rod tubes. My stock QS3's were lengthened to 19" from 18 3/8". This is done by taking out the factory 1" slugs and changing them to achieve the 19" c to c. Cost me $150 to lengthen and rebuild the two front shocks.

I’m sorry guys, I’m still trying to figure out what the returns may be on this to justify it.

I back-read but, what am I missing? Is it just to update the front end for the sake of updating it?

I'm being impatient and putting on the snoX 43.5" ARS2 front end. Who knows when the part numbers will be out for the 2020's. That being said if you wait, it should be just the spindles and top A-arms, and you'll have the new ARS2 front end, assuming no backorders on new parts. Unless you want a wider front end, like I'm doing. The colors work perfect for me too. That's another reason I'm doing it.

ARS2 project complete. Very easy, all bolt on. Cat should come out with an upgrade kit and make some coin.

Intriguing for sure. IDK, cat’s already got the best front end in the biz, maybe they should have spent more money on the rear skid, IMO.

Oh well...never scoff at engineering improvements!

Front end upgrades (spindles & arms) came from the 18/19 SX chassis as far as I know. See, SX is important.

Well, you most certainly don’t need to convince me of that.
