Adjustable Rear Arm Brackets

I am thinking of buying these:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1963-1972...t/293325592889

Has anyone used them?

The metal outside the adjusting holes seems thinner on the ones shown mounted on the truck than the main images. Would that be an issue?

Re: Adjustable Rear Arm Brackets

I made my own many years ago. What I don't like about these is the holes appear to be in a straight line. Being the stock lCA's are something like 54" (don't remember exactly) the holes should have an arch so that the rear end does not move forward or aft.

TinWorks Fabrication makes a quality product.
I wouldn’t hesitate to buy them if that what you want.

Re: Adjustable Rear Arm Brackets

I hadn't thought about the arc in the holes. But the rear suspension is lowered about five inches so the axle would be further back than standard? I think the lowering would be more significant than the hole position. Perhaps a straight line of holes would be better with a lowered truck?
