Hime joint radius arm

Wanna throw some Himes on the ends of my 44 radius arm , I already have wildhorse extended radius arm so I don't want to lengthen them anymore , any one know if you can get Himes that will thread onto the coarse threads on the end of the radius arms already?

think your best bet would be a industryal suplly company or get the arms rethreaded to a fine thread dont remember ever seeing a coarse thread heim joint
adding the joint on the threaded end will lengthen arms 3 0r more inches
so cutting the coarse thread off shorteing the stub and rethreading it to fine thread
the other alternative would be cutting the arm to use a weld in bung
if they are a tubular arm not cast like the stock f150 arms
have been trying to figure out same thing for stockwheels exploder
it just tears apart the radius arm bushings

We made some custom extended arms in my exploder with Heims & custom cross member mount. The heims have lasted forever. Mind you they do bark and groan on occasion, but I've been beating on them for probably 5 or more years now.

The one thing I'm wondering though us the fact that they use the origional diff mount end on them I'm wondering if the top part of the arm with the stud is inside the top of the tube or if it's just a stud at the end , if there is a piece of the origional arm at the top it will be pritty hard to weld a threaded bung in
