Radius arms needed ASAP!!!!

I was doing the radius arm bushings, and snapped the end off both while trying to remove the nut... soaked it over night in liquid wrench and used a torch... if anyone in the Atlanta area has a couple stock radius arms... HELP!!! please.... :banghead :banghead :banghead :cry :duh

I guess I don't know my own strength sometimes!!! LOL
Thanks...

It shouldn't be too hard to find...call some salvage yards, F-150's should work and there's tons of them! :thumbup

yeah, if I could afford one, and if I had the time for the vehicle to be down... :( I'm all for it, the problem is I need to be driving... yesterday!!! :cry :banghead

gonna take the whole axle down to Ford and let them remove some bolts so I can get this thing back on the road.. :banghead

I've got 90% of the axle down and out... I can't seem to get the front ABS wires loose from the back of the hub... do I need to find where it plugs in?? Last Bronc I had was an 84 carbed, ran great... I should have never gotten rid of it... ahhh... live and learn...
