I have a pair of frame brackets for a SAS or extending your radius arms with a heim or Johnny Joint for sale. They are 1/4" steel and have a 1/2" pilot hole so you can drill them out to whatever suspension joint you use (like 9/16", 5/8", 3/4"). They accept a standard 2 5/8" wide joint. These bolt in place of the stock transmission crossmember on 1st gens. The frame holes will need to be slightly enlarged with a 1/2" drill and the driver side of the frame will need to be drilled. They also have tabs to accept a poly or solid bushing, standard 2 5/8" wide, to make your own transmission crossmember since the stock one is no longer used. Lastly, there are no holes drilled for a vertical bolt to go through the bottom of the frame. I do recommend using a single bolt through the bottom which you would need to drill out. You do not need to use all 4 bolts on the side but they are there if you decide to. SOLD





An example of these installed on my own Explorer with Trail Gear Creeper Joints:

Totally interested in these. I would of course need extended arms, new shock towers, longer shocks, new coils, a new cross member, joints & bushings, etc...These would be expensive!

Glad you posted that last pic, your method of using the small turnbuckle for the E-Brake line is so simple, it's genius! :D

I saw these in person and WOW! These things are stout and very nicely made. I am planning on using a set for a 3 link build coming up.

Do you make these, and if so can they be customized at all?

Yes I made them. This is the second set I made and the first is on my Explorer now. You can PM me with what you have in mind to customize them and I will see if it is something I can do.
