The F150/Bronco radius arms are about the same length as the skyjacker extended arms.Originally posted by LT. LARRY:
IT IS A 74 BRONCO DIFF WITH CHEVY DISK CONVERSION. I HAD THE STOCK D-35 WITH SKYJACKER RADIUS ARMS BEFORE AND THEY HELPED A LOT, BUT SWAPPING TO THE SOLID AXLE GAVE ME MUCH MORE ARTICULATION, AND IT WAS A LOT CHEAPER TO PUT TOGETHER. NOW I WANT TO SEE WHAT LONGER ARMS WILL DO FOR A STRAIGHT AXLE, I THINK A LOT!
Basically, you put a hinge in the right side radius arm right at the C-bushing so that it can flop up and down. This will allow huge articulation from pretty much any spring, compared to the stock arms. Many people put a second removable pin in it to lock it solid when not needed, but some don't. I would, especially if you don't beef up the other arm. Should be OK to drive without the pin, just relearn how it handles, because it will be quite different from stock.Originally posted by LT.

YEAH I AGREE, AFTER I FOUND OUT HOW MUCH THE ARMS COST IT'S NOT WORTH IT. I'M JUST GOING TO DROP THE REAR RADIUS ARM MOUNTS DOWN A FEW INCHES, THAT SHOULD HELP. THANKS FOR THE INTERESTING INFO. HOW DO THE WRISTED ARMS WORK?
