To all that can help.... (on a 1980 fj40) When mounting the steering box to the plate-what do you use for measurement? Should the holes for the steering box be drilled out before the plate is welded? I'm getting ready to take the old steering apart so I can get this conversion done before summer. Can the regular fj40 ends be used to save money? On the drag link, is this going to be custom?  id you use your old drag link? On the pitman arm, I have a four inch lift now so I want to make sure I get the correct one for the steering box and adjustment in lift. If I purchase the flaming river steering shaft from advanced adaptors, is it already the correct length? Will it work with the napa u-joints and slip yokes? What about just ordering a kit from advanced adaptors? I found a professional welder here in Pittsburg that will do the welding so I am going to do the rest myself! I'm just a little worried about screwing something up while attempting this conversion. I just want to be able to drive my rig again!! Thanks for taking the time to help answer all of my questions!!!
