Radius Arms

Along with the beams, the front end also included extended radius arms on 1.25-inch Heims with cutouts for steering. Ryan got this idea from a previous Toyota build that used a pitman/idler arm setup. This setup works great on the '68 because it puts the steering pivot in the same plane as the beam pivot allowing the geometry to work well with little to no bump steer. It also lets both tie rods be the same length.
