yup, thats my arm.


41xx steel is a family of high-strength low-alloy (HSLA) steels, as specified by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). Alloying elements include chromium and molybdenum, and as a result these materials are often referred to as chromoly steel, or cro-mo, or CRMO. They have an excellent strength to weight ratio, are easily welded and are considerably stronger and more durable than standard 1020 steel.

Examples of applications for 4130 include structural tubing, bicycle frames, AK-47 receivers, clutch and flywheel components, and roll cages. They are also used in aircraft and therefore 41xx grade structural tubing is sometimes referred to as "aircraft tubing".

I don't get it...that's your arm not "Aircraft tubing". It's like false advertising.

actually we shouldnt need the stock shock measurement, since we will be redesigning everything. and yup, fab is what i do. it relaxes me and keeps my mind occupied since ive had mild depression going on for about the past year.
