Welcome to the site. There is a ton of info on a solid axle swap in the Off-road Projects Forum. Search through all of those and I'm sure you'll find your answer. Names that come to mind for a radius arm setup are:

Stic-o
bmxking5

I have the Sky Jacker radius arm mount/tranny cross member on mine.

I would suggest looking under a vehicle that already has a radius arm setup to kind of get an idea of exactly what the suspension does as it travels. Also look at its steering components and how the steering linkages are affected during the suspension's travel.
