Re: Hydro Assist
Most folks running the Toyota axles are using the IFS (independent front axle)type steering box with a billet pitman arm , and a high steer setup . Otherwise, you could use the Toyota FJ80 steering box , pitman arm and may be able to swap in the steering arm parts as well to your axles. This box , unlike the ifs box puts the pitman arm forward so you don't have to run the box at the very end of the frame. Do a bit of searching on the forums and some of the Toyota vendors for some ideas. Just depends on what you have available over there in Aussie land. BTW, the Ford parts you are considering are pretty stout too.
Any chance you'd know of any 200 (3.3L) straight six crossflow heads? I'd like to find a couple for some friends here for some show cars....
