    If you're willing to share the dxf file, I'd love to check it out in Solidworks! Thanks in advance!

    So....I swapped out to a set of front radius arms that have the stock bushings, providing stock caster. The truck definitely turns back to center much better now! I did take some of the advice to check out the trunnion bearing and this is what...

    When my 96 model developed very stiff steering I pulled the front axle apart and found the trunnion bearings were falling apart, broken bits along with very rough/worn/pitted roller bearings. They had been reinstalled incorrectly by the PO which...

    Either I'm looking at the wrong parts or both of those vendors are either out of stock or no longer selling the kit.

    Can you speak to this process a bit more? What will I feel? A spot somewhere in the articulation where the wheels stick or feel harder to turn/. Now I'm curious if I'll feel it, as you say, more in that 9 o'clock to 3 o'clock area just on...

    I get what you're saying. Maybe my expectations are unreasonable comparing it to the Tundra and 4Runner. I'm going to start by swapping out the radius arms and see where that puts us. My hope is that dials it in much better! Thanks for the...

    When you say trunnion bearings, are you referring to the bearings on the top and bottom of the knuckle that are accessible when disassembling the berfs?
  • L
    The knuckle trunnion bearings may be worn...they can form pockets in their races and cause the steering to have a distinct (and unnerving) "index" that prevents a free return-to-center. These bearings are easy to inspect during a front axle...

    I have a stock set of radius arms coming so I'll try everything stock. Truth be told, I test off-road products for a living so I feel pretty much everything. It's a blessing and a curse....

    Thats my bad...I meant to type "castor bushings". As far as "snapping back", that's not what I'm looking for. I have to turn it back to center, which doesn't seem right. I have a 2015 Tundra and a 2018 TRD Pro 4Runner as well and the steering...

    So...a few questions. Do the OME caster blocks add + or - caster? What's the sweet spot? With the OME kit, the idea of the caster blocks is to provide 2 additional degrees of caster....so the fact that I can't tell the difference in the...

    I can't answer that for sure because I've only owned it for a few months. The lift was put on mostly because the previous owner wanted to replace the shocks, which were worn out. For the price, he just decided to do the whole OME kit. Caster...

    I'm looking for a little help trying to diagnose an LC80 with steering that seems a bit lazy to me. Steering effort is certainly a bit heavier than our Tundra and 4Runner, but not terrible. I attribute the heavier effort to the full-time 4wd...
