I am buying some radius arms to set up on my S10 , with a Chevy dana 44. What I am wondering about is where I can get some weld on mounts to fit ford radius arms . I have been looking alot on here , but not found to much as to the mounts. I know bronco grave yard has arms but just wondering where I can find the weld on Axle mounts. Thanks for any , and all help .

If you want a radius arm front end, do like all of the jeep guys do and build a "long arm" setup. Ford designed the radius arm to act as a swaybar, not for flex. Buy some of those ballistic fab brackets instead and some 1.5" poly bushings.

Can You explain the benefits? I was going to extend the arms and use a heim at the frame end. And beef them up a bit as well.

Well fwiw, I have run stock radius arms, wristed radius arms, and now lengthened/jointed/wristed/plated/bent for clearance radius arms. If I didn't have so much work into them right now I would cut them off and 3 link the front. With the jeep type arms, you can adjust caster easily, use much stronger tubing, get more flex by adding more bushing and more separation, and best of all not have to deal with radius arm bushings...

Don't take that as me being a radius arm hater though, ford was ahead of the curve when they put it into the trucks and eb's in the late 60's...and it can work just fine when extended. I just wouldn't go through all of that trouble to add them to something.

Are you running a lift, Need drop brkts.? If so I have a set for sale, PM me and I'll give you the specs. Cage arms run about $750 and flex great, If you are using stock radius arms this is a more reasonable setup

Thanks Jim
