This is for a pair of Radius Long Arm links to replace your parallel control arms on a 2nd or 3rd gen ram, or
when using a 2nd or 3rd gen front axle under your custom application. Welding required, universal type kit, could be used to transplant these axles under most any frame. These are able to be adjusted for any amount of lift you have or are wanting. All set for 9/16 Hardware

or 00-13 (Click link to purchase or add to cart) to eliminate the slide type caster adjuster that's part of the lower caster adjustment on the axle. With this setup your arm length adjustment is handled by the 1.25” rod end at the frame and the caster adjustment is handled by the upper part of the radius arm and it's 7/8 rod end.
The lower tubes are 38 inches long 2" x .25" wall DOM and the uppers are 24 inches long 1.5" x .25" DOM extra long cut to fit for your application. The lower heim is a 1.25" Heat treated heim with your choice of misalignment size. Optional greaseable rebuildable flex joint. The Chassis Link Bracket hole size is 9/16". The upper is 7/8" Heat treated joint with 9/16" zinc misalignment.

*Tips to help prevent any seized or warped threads:
Correctly adjust welder settings and start your puddle on the tube. (Too much heat will warp the threads)
Do not weld the tube adapter with the rod end threaded inside. (The two pieces cool at different rates and will lock them together)
Wait until everything has completely cooled before threading your rod ends into the adapters
we often get the question, are these greaseable?
The bushed dom end can have a grease zerk, although I don’t recommend it. Grease on assembly is more than enough.
Any application with a heim (our typical single or double adjustable) is not greasable and does not need to be. We just recommend grease on all parts on assembly and occasional spray of a penetrating lubricant.
We do have an option on a joint that is greasable and rebuildable if desired. We would have to do a little machining to work with certain application, but it could work. I personally see no advantages to this route.
