We originally designed this long arm for the '78-'79 Big Bronco and quickly realized all the rest of you wanted a piece of the action.

We've also had customers successfully use this kit on Econoline Vans, Jeeps, Blazers, Scouts, Hummers, and more!

Our proven Long Travel Extended Radius Arm is Designed for rugged off-road use while enhancing drivability. Fabricated out of 2" diameter, heavy wall DOM at a whopping 5/16" thick! For strength and safety we designed a separate cast steel head unit to mount to the C-wedges on the axle with your original C-cap or our new ones sold separately. These arms are 10 3/4” longer than a '66-'79 Bronco arm, moving the pivot point farther back. This vastly improves suspension travel & articulation but it doesn't stop there. These arms also improve handling & control for on road driving.

  • Proven Design since 2001
  • Bolt-in C-Channel Frame Mounts
  • 10 3/4" longer than stock
  • Built-in 4.25Ί of added caster
  • In stock ready to ship, no lead time, no waiting!
  • Backed by the best customer service in the industry
  • Big Tires? Due the offset built into them that's what these these arms are made for
  • Needing more articulation, more flex? Our extended arms will give you the most of any arm on the market
  • Strongest extended radius arms available
  • Made from 100% brand new American Materials
  • Comes powder coated with all necessary hardware
  • Just say no to janky designs and core charges!


Fabricated from all new materials; no core charges, no cutting or welding to 40-50 year old cast arms. Built in caster means better alignment and handling. A tight to the frame rear mount holds the arm with a high quality 1” bore Teflon lined and lubricated Rod End, keeping it closer to the frame for improved ground clearance and breakover angle. Tons of travel, a tighter turning radius, better ground clearance and improved handling all in one product! Includes arms, head units, rod ends, frame mounts, bushings and all necessary mounting hardware. Requires at least a 4” suspension lift for '78-'96 Ford Broncos. C-bushings are sold separately due to vehicle variations and lift height.

This kit includes arms, cross member brackets, specially designed frame brackets with a backside reinforcement and riser brackets for the brake lines. The arms are the same proven design that we've been selling for years! Combine with our Cast C-Wedges, C-Caps and Spacers to swap in a new Dana 44 or Dana 60!

Note that a High Pinion 44 or 60 needs about 8° caster, 5-6" lift on this axle will utilize the 4°C-Bushings #6004. Any more lift then that use 7°Bushings #6007. The caster numbers can be adjusted on all axles depending on what angle the C-wedges are welded onto the axle.

Because the shopping cart cannot calculate shipping properly on these, we will contact you to authorize with shipping charges after you place your order. Please note these are heavy duty, they come in two packages totaling 121lbs!
