toy ifs power steering

anybody have pictures of the placment of toyota ifs box on the frame of the samurai. I have wrangler springs with missing links in the front, and it looks to me like the ifs box needs to be placed just about where the front spring mount for my missing link is located.

Re: toy ifs power steering

Yeah, you're right. I reccommend an FJ-60 or FJ-80 box to ease the install. The difference is the FJ boxes have a forward facing pitman arm whereas the IFS faces the rear. I run IFS and am going to an FJ when I do my S/R and frame extension.

Sky Manufacturing. They will make you one any way you want it for around $90.

Re: toy ifs power steering

one more question. Why did you need to get the special pitman arm, does the stock one hit the spring?

Re: toy ifs power steering

No it didn't hit, but did hang about 2"-3" lower. Didn't like how close it was to the spring pack. He was planning to go to a crossover steering anyway. Just thinking ahead. Remember, Proper Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Sky will make the end to accept any TRE or heim that you specify.
