Yes, the rear arms are the same. I checked all of that before I did all the work. Just made the wrong aassumption on the bar location. I'm backed into a corner now since I welded them up already and can't move the u-channel. Well, I do have a grinder, so I guess I can go that route (carefully!) if I have to.
So I'm just trying to figure out how to get myself out of the mess inexpensively and without too much pain.
MAX, I thought that it might be wise to weld some tubing in the bolt holes if I use the standard bar...you confirmed it.
I know better than doing what I did. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Could've been worse I suppose!
