Arm Drop Brackets

Our Bronco was already equipped with a 6-inch suspension lift that used radius arm drop brackets. The drop brackets tie into the transmission cross member and help strengthen the frame. Although you don't need to keep your old radius arm mount, CAGE suggests that you trim your old radius arm mount (in this case our drop bracket) to help reinforce the frame in case the truck sees abusive off-road use. We listened to CAGE and went ahead and cut it; there is really no reason not to, and a die grinder or plasma cutter will make quick work of it.
