SAS radius arm brackets, just outside stock X-member?

I'm a 78/79 guy, so bear with me a bit. Helping out a fellow member with an 86 SAS D44 coil.

Looking over every thread I could find, seems no one extends the radius arms just enough (6 inches) so that the rad arm brackets end up opposite the stock X-member like 78/79 are. Considering having him purchase the poor man rad arm extensions, cut them down to 6 inches and then mount rad arm brackets as just discussed. Hoping to save the effort of boxing the frame.

Mods, please move if you have to?

What do you mean when you say "so that the rad arm brackets end up opposite the stock X-member like 78/79 are."

If your looking for a way to brace the brackets without boxing the frame I tied mine together with tube welded to the brackets. so that they wouldn't fold the frame under. I'm running 6" deavers 3" drop brackets for the radius arms and stock arms.

Like this, but without the rad arm drop downs.





I figured extending stock arms 6" and not having to reinforce
frame at the same time was a pretty easy way to do it. Only
concern was extending the stock 78/79 arms brings them inboard
and hence they may not meet up with rad arm brackets at that point.
