Different mounting hole lenghts for the coil buckets. They use the same bushings though. I have also run accros different casting thicknesses as well. I can post up some photos of each.

Well I'm asking cuz I'm gathering parts to sas my ranger with a FW dana 44 but need radius arms. A guy about an hr away is selling a set of EB radius arms for $50. Will they work for me or should I look for arms from a FW 44?

They'll work, you'll just have to buy EB lower coil retainers.

FWIW, I have 3 or 4 pairs in the garage. I stock pile them lol

Yes. Actually from what I've found 77 and older full sizes use the same arms as a EB. The mounting holes are closer together. I have a stack of them behind the garage too. I had close to 50 at one point lol.

Good info. Thanks. And yea, stock piling is a horribly addicting thing. I still have a shed full of fullsize ford, ranger, chevy, and dodge parts :icon_rofl:
