I'm in the process of setting up a custom steering system for my 88 Toyota 2wd. I'm thinking of running 1"- 1 1/4" 4130 tubing and then using heims instead of the balljoints. I was also thinking of getting rid of the steering dampner. Will this be a good setup? What size/kind of heims should I use? Thanks...

I need to upgrade as well. Deciding upon Greg's slider setup, swingset, or somthing like Total Chaos. Soon as my budget allows. Geting rid of the idler arm is my main goal. Stay tuned?

Hey Pat I am unfamiliar with that set up, can you explain it? Or is it one of things that you either know or you don't?

We are going right now to take the pictures of our race trucks steering set-up, check back in a couple of hours for the pictures of what we have. Our steering is exactly what you are talking about.

Here is a pic of the drivers spindle and tie rod end. The tie rod ends are double shear on the spindle.

Here is a pic of the steering box, where the tie rod connects to the center link and the pitman arm. The power steering is off a '94 4x4. Got it from an auto dismantler in Cali for about $300.00.

The idler arm, the centerlink connections for tie rod and idler arm. We also run a steering stabilizer, you can see it in the background.

Small addendum; that would be the IFS PS box, the LA box, PS or not, is considerably different.

The steering was built by ATS, and the steering knuckles/spindles were beafed up by our sponsors in Grand Junction, Colorado, AOR (Advanced Off-Road Research). www.atsracing.biz www.aor4x4.com
