Gotten into some trouble overhauling the suspension on my 95 XLT 4x4

I've been working on this thing for a while to fix a variety of issues with my suspension. My problem that I can't seem to solve is finding radius arms that fit over my axle. I have purchased two sets that have been stated to have the correct measurements but both have come up short when trying to apply them. I don't know if I've just been purchasing the wrong ones or if there's a certain pair i need to get from a certain site. if anyone could give me some feedback for this if you've gone through this yourself that would be appreciated. I'm only 19 and I'm pretty sure I've taken too big of a bite on this one.

As far as I know 1983 to 1997 4x4 Rangers all used the same radius arms

Seen here: https://shop.broncograveyard.com/198...uctinfo/93236/

Ranger 4x4s 1983 to 1997 used TTB (Twin Traction Beam) front end

Diagram seen here: https://therangerstation.com/tech_li...spension.shtml

It looks like Ford did the last change to this part in 1995

Last Part number is: F57Z-3A360-B
F5 = 1995 was last change, but fits 1990-1997, previous part number was F17Z-3A360-B so 1991
7Z = Ranger
3A360 = Ford part number for ALL radius arms, any model
B = revision, and can as note Left or right side on some parts
