Couldn’t seem to get the right wheelbase/clearance from the radius arm mount position so I flipped it and moved it in for mock up and it’s looking like I’m gonna have to modify it or something

If those are old threat beams closest I could ever get wheelbase is 1/2 inch close. The back beam j could never push far enough forward with crossmember and radius arm mount.

They’re McNeil, I can’t seem to get them far enough back without moving the rad arm mounts closer together (off the frame rail). Or I can get close to where I need to be with the heims on the beams turned more than halfway out and the rad arm heims all the way in...

thats the issue with J beams... dealing with it myself on my bronco, as are some other folks on here. My solution is to cut off radius arm and re weld or make it bolt on. Still haven't decided.

Go a little past if your cutting the gusset. Welding will pull it back. Tack a couple bars top and bottom from the beam to the radius arm to help hold it.

Or just weld a double plate on the outside real nice and hot. All ready had to move one of the arms on the Sami like that.
