Only if you want to ruin what is now a very expensive part. you'd have to use two of them to do so. ford radius rods are cheap, and there are more oval tubed springers made than i-beams. 1936-1957(servicar used them to 57). I have an extedned hd springer you could buy.
I-Beams: Vl's were used from 1930-36. Rl's from 1930-40(36-40 on wr's). RL's are shorter with a 7/8" stem and used a standard frontleg. VL's have an 1 1/8" neck stem and use a VL only front leg that mount thr fender close to the tire. RL's mount fender to the rear leg.
