    Mine are marked L and R but can't remember if they face out or in? 4X4 Labs did a custom taper on a set of 62 arms that fit my HD tie/relay rods with 1 ton ends. Installing them shortly, and it looks like they will hit the wheel. Spacers I guess will be needed. Anyone running this setup on their 40?

    OK thanks. Would a spacer be a better move than a larger rim, ie 16"?

    I don't know what wheel you are running, but with my old drummies and aluminum rims, I had to run 1/4" spacers. Still had plenty of thread, but you really need to check lug nut torque frequently. The spacers I used were from O'Reilly or some other chain and cost about $10/pair.

    2nd that, I am running spacers but my next set of wheels will be 17s. Once I wear out my current set of tires I will ditch the spacers and get the proper BS then.

    17's don't have nearly the option for tire sizes that 15" do. 18's have tons of options, but i think thats way to big for a cruiser. 15" fit the old look perfectly IMO.
