It's 1/1/2" longer, thicker metal, more reinforced in key areas and needle bearings in the pivot plus it was $55 delivered. It wasn't a bolt on and go application. The pivot tube is larger so the stock end caps wouldn't work. I had to adapt washers to fit around the inside bosses to act as thrust washers to prevent side to side play. 1/4" I also had to shave the inner races to fit. I may have to add two thin washers in the future if side to side play develops. So far so good for now. If anything happens I'll post it here.
