Default 2wd radius arms

My driver side radius arm rusted and broke at the axle. Damn northern road salt!!!!!! The passenger side looks like it's not doing too well either. Would like a set of non-rusted OEM ones or at least something close to non rusted!

Hopefully someone out there has done some suspension mods and has them sitting around.

Finding these things new on line is a PITA. I guess stuff like this is not supposed to break.

Not that it matter because I think all the 2wd twin I beams suspensions are the same, but, it's a 97 3.0.

Well, I somehow managed to get the big ass bolt off the end of the radius arm and the one that bolts it and the springs to the TTB. Gotta love kroil!!! That stuff is a livesaver.

So, ready to start putting it all back together.

If anyone out there has these arms available within the next day or two, let me know or I'll have to go give my money to the ford man. they actually aren't as bad as i expected there. i found them for 65 bucks on their website.

Do the $65.00 otherwise shipping will kill the discount, did you check the other one for breaks?

you're probably right although they really aren't that heavy. i would think i could get a pair shipped for 20 bucks or so.

the other one's pretty rusty as well. will need to get it done shortly.
