    Blur LT: carbon v. alum swing arm

    Santa Cruz just warrantied my broken aluminum swing arm, and they are sending me a carbon swing arm as a replacement. Does the rear (XT) brake attach the same way to the carbon swing arm? Or do I need to buy some kind of spacer?

    Are there any other differences between the two swing arms?

    Thanks.

    The Blur LT2 lower link diagram says:

    P/N [08-11903] APPLY GREASE TO SHAFT, APPLY
    LOCTITE(242) TO THREADS. LIGHTLY TORQUE
    TO 35 IN/LBS TO REMOVE PLAY. 2 PLCS.
    ...in reference to the pivot axle collet bolt. What does "2 PLCS" mean?

    I guess omitting the A and an E saves a lot on ink?

    By the way, the carbon swing arm has a different derailleur hanger than the aluminum swing arm. So if anyone gets a carbon swing arm as a replacement for an aluminum swing arm, they should ask Willie to sell them a spare derailleur hanger and include it in the box.
