Yea I could of got 33 Swamper Radials, but the guys friend had these and I bought them and he bought the radials. I couldn't be happier. I'll probably repaint it dark metallic green with a tan bedlined rocker. That'll be after I do a 90's front clip and tan dash swap and new explorer seats. Then the 4.0. Its a project, but it's still my everyday driver.

Got the axle together and we painted the S10 Oliver Green and are pulling it out so I can start the B2. A question, is the caliper supposed to be real loose until it gets pressure?

Did a little work last night. My roomate went to the bar so I had 3 girls helping me, mainly grabbing me tools. This is all I got done. Just need to make lower coil mounts and one shock mount. And longer brake lines, and lift the rear, and do rear gears. Then the lift will be done. Then I'm choppin the top, puttin on a ranger tailgate, making a softop, and making half doors. Then newer dash with a 4.0, green and tan paint, and eddie bauer interior. Thats all I have planned for now.

hey, from looking at the other pics, i think his radius arms aren't even connected. they are just resting on the ground. so thats point the diff down.. once he attaches them, it will rotate the axles angle up and be correct! looks funny tho doesn't it, plus theres no pics of it from behind so you cant see the arms when the wheels are on.

Welllllllllll, you're close. The radius arms are attached. The crossmember that I have is apparently made for a truck with 12+ inches of lift. I want to keep it low. So, this weekend, I have to make a new crossmemberfor the tranny/radius arms. But in regards to the first question, the wedge bushings are 7*.

Yikes! I would either modify what you have or try to find a set of stock 78/79 F150/FullSizeBronco radius arm brackets.

Making a whole new one this weekend. I didnt like the way that one was setup anyways. But it was a good reference point.

Yea, I don't know what springs the guy was running with this. On his B2 setup now, he has 9" deavers. He just gave it to me so I figured I'd try to use it. Oh well.
