Hey so I am sure this has been answered time and time again and what I need exists somewhere. I have been working the search function but have come to the point where I am about to lay down some more cash on the hy-steer kit that I will be using for my project but I have a few variables and I just am hoping an expert or two can tell me that I’m in the right track.

here’s what I got

75fj40 Chevy 350. 4 speed toy trans/case
-“Toyoda” ps box. I believe it’s a mini truck ifs box. It works fine but the turning radius is enormous.
- fj60/62 axles
-soa kit at the ready
-hoping to reuse stock springs

I just want to pickup the correct hy steer kit for my application. Marlin I have heard is the way to go, and the local shop advises they are 4-6 weeks back ordered with no firm delivery date. That doesn’t bother me as long as that setup will work with that I am trying to put together.

My mind is so fuzzy reading about spline counts and compatible arms and trying to match everything up.

I won’t be starting in this till March anyways so I don’t mind the wait if it’s the correct setup. If it isn’t though, can someone guide me in the right direction?

all help and patience is appreciated.

I'll second the 4x4Labs setup. You can also send him your pitman arm and he'll ream it to match the 1 ton TRE's that come with the kit. Also look into Scout or FJ60 power steering. I run Scout with the 4x4Labs steering.
