Re: Toyota power steering

I just finished putting a power steering pump from a toyota car and the steering box from nissan king cab in my 87 sammy.adapted the brackets. Had to do some cutting on the wheel well as well as the front body mount,but it works great.

Re: Toyota power steering

Well I guess the best one is from a 78-80 toyota car, They bolt into the inside frame rail like stock. Info on which
to use is on RRO site. For Mongrelzuke: you mounted the box on the outside of the frame right? any problems with
spings hitting the arm or tires? I am going to do this with a toy truck PS set-up and am still debating in V outside
frame rails.

Re: Toyota power steering

You got that right! I have a bad right shoulder, and with the lockers in it can be a bear off-road. First I am going to
do the rest of my lift then add the PS. (I am adding missing links and longer springs first.) The only issue I am facing with putting the box on the inside of the frame rail is the larger size of the toyota truck box, I am going to
have to shove the radiator over. Or I go on the outside of the frame and risk binding on the springs

Re: Toyota power steering

Saw this on one of the other lists. Jim

Our kit uses Toyota
Just for future reference ours
with all the bells and whistles to run the power steering and the ac pump either
as an ac or a compressor is only $464.00 with the pump,steering box pressure
hose etc. Get it going and you'll be really happy with the system. They can get
really tough to steer when you get big tires and lockers. .
Good Luck on the project

Re: Toyota power steering

I used a steering box out of a nissan king cab it's small and sits like the original, on top of the frame except the shaft goes down the outside of the frame.had to lengthen the steering arm 6 inches but it works great also no problems with tire or spring clearence.
