When the radius arm brackets are installed there is a perfect 1/4" gap between the bracket and the frame. The guy who's thread I followed cut out a piece of 1/4 plate and heated and bent it to conform to the shape of the bracket because of a slight angle that contours the frame rail. I lucked out and ended up with two sets of radius arm brackets. I used the worst pair to cut the already contoured piece of the bracket off then bolted and welded it to the bracket to be used on the truck. Hard to understand how I'm describing it but you can probably get it if you look at the picture close.

Passenger side bucket in which was a breeze. Literally look 10 min including drilling holes. I think 4 out of seven match up fine

To touch on this side again, I forgot to mention brake line issues. You can see in the picture where the existing line used to run, and where I needed to go with the new axle. The existing brake hose was essentially a T that connected the master cylinder + front driver and passenger together. I replaced the existing hose with a 3/16" standard thread inverted flare T and ran a new line over to the front side of the bucket. The picture shows the line ran all the way down to the bottom of the frame to anticipate for extra travel for the line. I ended up cutting the line back to where my markup line stops and mounted the new bracket in the existing brake line bracket hole that's threaded into the bucket.
I also forgot to mention I installed a new red head steering gear pre tapped for hydraulic assist, all new power steering hoses, and did a power steering flush using royal purple synthetic ATF.

I need to get the PMF front hangers for 08 springs. Nice how that way you can keep parking brake bracket.

Lol, your right. There was a buncha beer drank over the coarse of this.

As far as taking my time goes your right there too. This is the first project I've done where I've tried taking my time and doing it right the first time. Normally I don't have the money and patience to do it right, and my projects just get thrown together, or my classic move, unfinished. My budget does limit me on doing some things how I really wanted to. I would have much rather pulled the cab and cleaned the entire frame and running gear, but I don't have the resources or budget to make it happen. I have a car I drive back and forth to work, so that also helps with the truck being able to stay down for a while.
