Radius arms or trailing arms

I have money to buy either a set of rovertym trailing arms or radius arms. There is a 1.5 inch lift on the truck. I am going to change the bushings on all over the suspension regardless but what what you change the radius arms of trailing arms? There are 12 inch bilstein 7100's in the back and the ten inch version on the front.

I got my rear trailing arm first. Then, I got the offset radius arms. I have both from from rovertym. The trailing arms come with spacers, so if you change the lift you can add the spacers.

If you wheel it do the rear first. They are more likely to get bent.

I'd say do the rears first, only since I see more people trash them than the front radius arms during average wheeling.

Rears get bent quicker, get the rears first...

Yeah, one of my rears is already bent so I guess the rears are a good choice
