Since a lot of you guys have already gone through this, I figure you could help me sort a few of these minor details with my SAS out. I have a solid 44 from a '79 Bronco that I am rebuilding. I need some recommendations for mounting the radius arms for my SAS, what type of brackets should I use. Can I use the ones from my TTB, or will they bind too much? How about c-bushings, what degree should I use 7, or something else? Can I keep my 4 inch coils and shocks, or do I need to go to 6 inches. I am not looking to get really radical with this axle, and I don't need monstous articulation. I just want something more sturdy and reliable than my TTB. The more basic the better. Thanks.

I modifyed my 79 arm brackets to accept the arms with no drop brackets. I cant seem to find the picture now tho :banghead I think I need to do something to support the brackets better tho, they are starting to bend my frame a little, not much but it is. also scott is having this problem as well. shitty ford frame I guess.

here's mine.


I was thinking about using some big piece of angle iron to fortify the frame there. Or run some 1/4 plate along the bottom of the frame, but it is curved there so it may prove to be tuff. Mine has already bent on the d side (the frame that is) as I came down to hard on it while goofing off.

there are the measurements for evilbroncs and rafs brackets

wes
thanks for the dimensions. Blaze and I were talking about what he plans on doing for his eventual SAS, (in reference to the RA mounts). I just saw this post and mentioned it to him. Wasn't sure if eighther of these original guys might be interested in making some for him (or anybody else), but if not, the numbers would help a little for somebody starting from scratch.

if you use the radius arm extenders like nameless did, then your gonna have to change the dimintions of those brackets right zilla? shane and i were both thinking of using those, and saving 600 bucks by not going with those duff arms like matt has.

I think Damon's solution to lay the stock bracket back 20 to 22 degrees is probably the most cost effective, and then reinforcing it with some 1/4 inch.
