I don't think any four wheel drive F250's came with radius arms all the f150 EB and f100 radius arms are the same with the exception of swaybar mount points and a cotter pin hole on the frame end of the arm.

all right thank you i wasnt too sure about it i guess the radius arms are kind of like the links in the suspension to hold the axle in place i guess.

They're sort of the same...the spacing on the holes for mounting the coil cup are different though, between the EB and the others.

really I have a arm on my bronco that I picked up randomly at a wrecking yard it was laying in the import car section. it had the same hole spacing as an EB arm I have no clue what it came from but I know that yard didn't have an EB for at least 5 years before that. I guess I am just lucky. When it comes to radius arms nobody would know better than Coby.

do you think you could tell me how they are different?</STRONG>
Sure...see this quote above:

........
The EB hole spacing is tighter, at about 1" center to center, and the other arms (including 78/79 bronco) have wider spacing. I forget the exact spacing; maybe someone else can confirm. I think it's 2".

It's not a big deal...you can always redrill a coil perch.
