Add relief for rear arms on Salisbury?

I can't tell cz I haven't assembled it all yet, but it seems like the trailing arm mounts on the axle could use a bit more radiusing to relieve the possibility of them contacting the arms. I realize the bushing should compensate for some of that but is it a wear point I need to be concerned about?

Mine never have on standard heavy duty 1 tonne springs - 130 outer springs. I wasn't an issue with cranked radius arms and longer travel suspension on my old 90 either.
Unless you're planning some radical suspension I'd only do it if it'll make you happy.
