First off I am not trying to be a dick or anything but is the radius arm going to clear at full bump with the stock transmission cross member?


Thanks, looks like a great start!

yeah thats what i thought matt... yeah i know those radius arms will most likely not clear.... havent even cycled it yet, especially once i finish plating and boxing them... but i already planned on making a removable tranny cross-member... just not sure how i want to do it yet and if i want to try and tie it into the radius arm mounts. i would have more done but it took me like 1-1/2 hours to get those bungs on the heims due to little nicks/scratches in the threads that they came with.

took me waaaaaaay longer than i expected to get these triangular pieces done with the right angles/notching... but now the beams are finally ready to be welded up...

hey not to bash you but i have built king pin beams the same way. what i recommend is that you remove that top plate on the beam. take a flap disck or something and grind down the original radius arm boss. cut a new a plate that is longer so you can bend it to the contour of the "s" in the beam. theirs isnt a that much surface area where you fab'd parts come together withe the beam end.

i did it the same way my first time and the beam cracked when i came down hard on the passenger side.
