Q & A

What's in the Box

It doesn't get much more traditional than running a set of split wishbones. These split bones are all new with forged front yokes just like Henry built them and fit a 2-1/4" axle boss. 

  • 40-3/4" from the front perch bolt centerline to the end of the 11/16"-18 threaded rear bung
  • 1/2"-20 threaded roid to allow a spring behind perch, shock mount or other hardware to be used
  • Material thickness is 12 GA (0.1046")
  • Fully boxed

Notes

  1. These radius rods do not have the original spring perch that goes ahead of the axle. Instead, they have a threaded roid behind the axle that will accept our 916-33002 spring pivot for a spring-behind application. This roid is approx. 3" behind the axle centerline.
  2. Radius rod accepts our 910-02909 tie rod end or 175-0128 heim (11/16"-18 thread).
  3. Direct replacements for our 36" Curtis-style radius rods 916-45114.
