Ive never heard a bad thing about them myself.  Ive heard they are burly strong and well made.  Also they use a 1 ton chevy tierod end I believe.

kongs was a 4x4 shop that went out of business a while back, their steering arms had a pretty good reputation.  WT is right, they used chevy TREs

I saw a set on a Runner up on the Rub Menorial Day.  They were much stronger looking than the rest.  If it's a deal I would take it.

Kongs arms are beefy. Debatably one the stronger set-ups available. Their first run used 1 ton chevy tierod ends. There was another run of arms that used the 1ton TRE's for the tierod, and drag link ends for the drag link. The DL ends have more travel in them, and take a different taper than the 1tons.
