Radius Arms Narrow vs Wide

After going through a lot of hassle replacing the front brakes on my 110, I have determined that the truck is not sporting it's original front axle. Being an ex BATUS vehicle this isn't a big surprise.



Ready to buy a complete set of bushes and looking at the SuperPro kits from Paddocks. Problem is the kits are for narrow radius arms (early) and wide radius arms (later). Only item different between the two kits is the Front Radius Arm to Axle Bushes. What do I need to measure to determine which radius arms I have. The 110 is a '95 but the front axle seems to be much earlier.


Thanks
Brett

Thanks for the numbers John. Winter has finally arrived in TO so I guess I will be crawling around in the snow tomorrow trying to figure out what I've got.

Maybe all Defenders are the same, but RRC has a smaller bushing on the frame side of the radius arm.

Funny, I'm in the process of swapping my front axle out for a wide style RRC axle so that I can run RTE cranked arms. If you were closer, I'd say we should just trade.

Was warm and dry enough to crawl around under the 110 this afternoon. From the measurements I got it seems my axle was replaced at some point and it is indeed an earlier axle with the narrower radius arms. Now at least I know what bushes to order.

Thanks
Brett
