Take some pics of it. Are you talking about the shackle hanger at the rear? Or the spring hanger at the front.

Either way you can fix replacement "repair" parts on Ebay all the time for pretty cheap. I'd get that sucker replaced.

I know what you are planning on doing with the factory radius arms..

I am saying to do a cut and turn setup on the beams instead of drop brackets.


Words of advice on moving the stock radius arm cross member back.

-If you extend the radius arms to where the bushing lands before the transmission x member you will have to clearance the radius arm cross member to clear the body mounts.. If you extend them to where the radius arm bushings land behind the transmission x member, you will lose up travel on the passenger side.. Your better off building some simple mounts instead of using the stock radius arm x member..

I just tried to do it and gave up on it because I knew I wouldn't be satisfied with the finished product..
So you’re saying one could build brackets and say screw radius arm crossmember?
You wouldn’t need a crossmember?
