I am planning on a 4" lift for my project and have been looking at the steering arms from Front Range and look similar to what you installed. I was told that SUA high steering arms were not needed. I want to know before I spend the money and have a poor set up.
Did you fabricate the mounting plate for the FJ80 steering box? I have the skill and experience but not the tooling to fabricate other then a welder and grinder.
Sorry, my earlier thinking failed to account for your SOA configuration. I expect as others said you would probably need a flatter pitman arm to work between the frame and leafs.
The spacer I had made at a machine shop. I traced the mounting surface and hole on the 80series box, made a template and took that in to have it made. I don’t have a plasma table to cut it out.
Since I don’t have leaf springs I cannot say what arm set up you would need.
@A10Driver had get creative clearing his pitman arm on his SOA 40. His thread is below and might give you some more information.
