I understand it's generally best to just buy adjustable control arms, that's not what this thread is meant to discuss. I'm curious why companies and the few who do build their own seem to use DOM? Would using solid round stock, steel or aluminum, that has been drilled and tapped in the ends be the same? I understand the DOM would be lighter, is that the only advantage? I'm new to trying to understand the design and material choices for suspensions so excuse me if the answer is obvious.
