I wonder if there is any swing arm differences between the different years?
Once you replace it, I'd be willing to buy your current one :)

Modifications seem to become a disease, once you have it you just can't get rid of it. LEt us know how it goes Sarge.

I'll wait for mike patterson to make a link, when he gets the time.

Just a thought... For something stressed like a swing arm, it might be good to be sure it is baked-out within 24 hours after plating. Baking shortly after chroming will drive out hydrogen introduced into the steel during the plating operation. Failure to drive out the hydrogen can embrittle the steel and lead to catastrophic brittle fracture. This is not usually a problem for low strength, low stress parts, but for things like springer front ends, swing arms and chassis structures, it is highly recommended.
