I have a question for all . I had replace my frame. Didnt notice frame was shortened when purchased. Outside all nice normal looking. Inside rails after dropping tank & big ass stock rnd muffler saw lil diamand welded in. Thing is measured leveled & found frame welded crooked. 1980 to 1990 frames interchange. But I-beams differ. 81 kingpin diff length beams to new 83 style up beams ? Are they all interchanable assembly on frames? Rather not buy new spindles setups for newer set up. Thanks any info

PS if frames 80 to 90 interchange. Will 81 I-beam assembly interchange on 1990 frame ? I imagine they should but rather ask want to order DJM lower beams. 80-81 different length dream Beams cheaper cost than newer ball joint type beams. Plus the cost new spindles & 4 joints
