Instead of patching mine, should I replace the beam with a new one? If yes, who makes a stock BJ beam that isnít lowered and is stock width?

The pan was built in Oct 65 so Iím guessing itís an early 66.

I thought I found a good beam but it was rusted through like mine. Iím just going to patch mine up on the car.

Based on what I have read, LinkPin / IRS is the most desirable setup. I have Ball Joint / Swing Axle.

My car is a bit of a Frankenstein.
