I'm about to buy the axles off a 74 bronco and I was wondering will the factory radius arm brackets off my 89 b2 be comparable with the radius arms off the bronco? I was wondering bc I remember how much of a pain my stock ones were to move when I lifted it. Thanks

If I remeber right you won't be able to use the arms that are already on the b2. Plus if you're going as far as putting a sollid axle under there I would just make a set of radius arms off of the 44.

no and no. stock b2 arms will not fit a dana 44. get the radus arms for the 74 and if you can get the brackets too.

dont take this the wrong way but if you thought that just grinding down a couple rivits was a pain the ass to move your brakets you might not want to get into a sas. there is alot more to it than just throwing an axle under the truck.

^ X2 however you will want radius arm brackets from a fullsize 73-79 truck. The EB 44 rad arm brackets are welded to the frame.

Crud. Is this reading right: The F-150 RA brackets are bolted, and Bronco RA are welded directly to the frame? Even for '78-'79 years?

Or do you only mean EB Early Bronco's up to 1977?

66-77 Broncos are welded to the frame. The 78-79 Bronco is made just like a truck and can be unbolted.
