I’m working on starting my first project nothing super serious just something I can still drive but have fun on some trails I’m trying to put together a build sheet of all the major parts I need I can’t do a lot of fabrication my self and want to know of any good arms for the front end of the truck I’ve looked at putting some deaver rear leafs but I am having some trouble with the front if anyone knows any good companies that make it or shops in the north GA area

This is where I’m starting planing on dropping a 302 in it for more power currently has four-cylinder

85? Doesn't have arms. It has beams.

2wd or 4wd? Pics?

Also, introduce yourself for maximum credibility

Otherwise it's "TITS or GTFO"

youre gonna have a hard time finding parts in your area, i would consult with shops out here to see shipping options and pricing. I would contact solo motorsports, threat motorsports, or giant motorsports

You have a couple of options depending on budget.

I'd at least do a radius arm and coilovers. Extended beams would be the next step after that.
Okay I’ll look into finding some

With getting longer radius arms I would need to get longer beams along with it correct?

And is there a certain coil over I should be looking at or just any brand that works for my application
