can't you weld the plate back on, and bolt the arm back up?

noo its too small to weld back up..just figured it would b easier to weld it solid... and the other thing is that i cant get the coil out b/c i dont got a 1 1/8 rench.. i gota socket but no wrench.. i also NEED matruck tonite .. the only way ima need this radius arm is if i suddenly wake up and find a grand so i can do a SAS but the chances of that r vry unlikely..

not a good idea to weld the radius arm....maybe if you are a specialist......ask the welder on the sight!

Get it off and bring it to me, and I'll make it like new. If you go to Stave falls auto wreckers and talk to Clayton and or Paul they might lend you a socket,if not I gots one you can use.
